49ers-Chargers exhibition to be blacked out

Posted: Updated:

SAN DIEGO (AP) - The San Diego Chargers' exhibition finale against the San Francisco 49ers on Friday night will be blacked out on local TV.

The game wasn't close to being a sellout more than 72 hours prior to kickoff, with about 7,000 general-admission tickets remaining Tuesday. The Chargers' exhibition opener against Seattle also was blacked out when some 6,000 general-admission tickets remained unsold.

Until that game, the Chargers hadn't had an exhibition blackout since 2006. The team has warned fans that there could be regular-season blackouts. The Chargers haven't had a regular-season game blacked out since 2004.

Jim Steeg, the team's chief operating officer, said no regular-season games are sold out, including the home opener against Baltimore on Sept. 20, and "significant" numbers of tickets remain for all games.

NOTE: CBS 8 will be airing a delayed broadcast of the Chargers vs 49ers game at 10:30pm, Friday night following the News 8 Special Edition news cast. Please visit the CBS 8 Program Schedule for more info.
