LOS ANGELES – The San Diego Chargers have sold enough tickets to lift the local blackout for Sunday’s Chargers-Raiders matchup at 1:25 p.m. at Qualcomm Stadium. The game will be televised throughout Southern California by CBS. Fans in the Los Angeles area can watch it on CBS2. Bill Macatee and Steve Tasker will call the game.
Heisman winner Matt Leinart could start for the 4-11 Raiders after Carson Palmer sustained a mild concussion against Carolina.
Club seats and a limited number of suites and single general seats are still available at Qualcomm Stadium Gate C, www.Chargers.com, TicketMaster outlets or by calling TicketMaster at 1-800-745-3000. The Chargers’ ticket office is open weekdays 8-5 p.m. and Saturday 10-4 p.m.
Fans are reminded the Qualcomm Stadium parking lot does not open until 9 a.m. and is expected to fill and close as early as 11:30 a.m. Fans are urged to arrive early and carpool or use public transportation, including the San Diego Trolley. The largest crowd of the season is a possibility and the parking lot is expected to fill and be closed well before kickoff. Fans also are reminded to allow plenty of time to get into the parking lot as well as the stadium. Long lines at the entry gates are likely due to enhanced screening procedures.
