Colts Need 7,000 More Ticket Sales For Sell Out
According to Stephen Holder of the Indianapolis Star, the Colts have roughly 7,000 tickets to sell in order to lift the blackout for Saturdays playoff game.
League rules require all non-premium tickets to be sold within 72 hours of kickoff in order to lift the blackout. Typically, an extension of the deadline is granted only if a commitment has been made by the team and/or its sponsors to buy any remaining tickets at 34 cents on the dollar. Given that Indys deadline lands on New Years Day, the league could grant an extension without a commitment to buy the excess tickets.
