• Bucs need to sell 7,400 tickets to lift blackout for Falcons game

    Summary of 4 articles · Updated Nov 19, 2012
    At this point two weeks ago, the Bucs needed to sell just fewer than 9,000 seats to lift a blackout against the Chargers and failed. The team announced today that it still must sell 7,400 non-premium seats to reach the benchmark required to lift the local television blackout under NFL rules. Corporate sponsors helped lift the blackout of the team's last home game, which came against the Chiefs on Nov. The team announced Monday it still must sell 7,400 non-premium seats by 1 p.m. Of course, only 7,400 non-premium tickets must be sold before Thursday, given the reduced 85-percent threshold. The Bucs have historically revealed very little about the status of ticket sales. Now trailing by three games in the division with the Broncos holding the tiebreaker, the Charges' playoff hopes appear to rest in a wildcard berth.
