According to Stephen Holder of the Indianapolis Star, the Colts have roughly 7,000 tickets to sell in order to lift the blackout for Saturday’s 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 Indy’s deadline lands on New Year’s Day, the league could grant an extension without a commitment to buy the excess tickets.
