The Kansas City Chiefs have asked the NFL for a 24-hour extension to sell the remaining unsold tickets for Sunday’s game against the Buffalo Bills, according to Randy Covitz.
At mid-week, the game was 3,500 tickets short of a sellout. By league rules, the game must be declared a sellout 72 hours in advance of kickoff, which in this case is noon Sunday.
So now the Chiefs have until noon Friday to avoid the blackout within a 75-mile radius of Kansas City.
Tickets to Sunday’s game are available through www.kcchiefs.com, by calling the Chiefs ticket office at 816-920-9400 or through Ticketmaster at 800-745-3000.
It sure seems like simply putting off the inevitable, but it sure would be a victory (small as it may be) to get this game sold out. The place is going to look half empty either way, the local fans might as well get a chance to watch from the comfort of their own home.
