The Packers’ wildcard playoff game is only days away and Lambeau Field is not sold out yet for Sunday’s match up against the New York Giants, but fans at home do not have to worry about a TV blackout.
Three years ago, businesses bought about 3,000 tickets to avoid a TV blackout when the Packers hosted a wildcard game against the 49ers.
Since then the NFL has suspended the blackout rule.
Ticket agencies say the fact a couple thousand tickets remain unsold is typical for a January game when many fans would rather watch the game indoors.
They say another factor is the Packers weren’t playing as well when the playoff offer was made to season ticket holders earlier in the season.
Catch the Packers vs. the Giants, Sunday, January 8th on Fox 25/48 with pregame starting at 3:00 PM and Sunday football programming starting at 9:30 AM.
