No Green Bay Blackout - Lambeau Sold Out

I knew there would be no blackout of the game on Sunday.

From 620 WTMJ:

The Green Bay Packers report say they have sold out their playoff game against the San Francisco 49ers. The NFL granted an extension to sell out the game or face a blackout of local television coverage.

As of 10:45 a.m., one bank reportedly helped the cause.

“We’re very thankful to Packers fans, and our partners led by Associated Bank, for ensuring Sunday’s game will be sold out,” said Packers President/CEO Mark Murphy in a statement. Bellin Health and Mills Fleet Farm also bought tickets, along with television stations across the state.

“A unique season and other factors contributed to having tickets available, but with the support of our fans and partners, we’re looking forward to a great atmosphere Sunday at Lambeau Field for the playoff game against the 49ers. We also know fans around the state will be able to enjoy the telecast.”
I extend my thanks to the Packer fans who will be in the stands at Lambeau for the game against the 49ers.

It will not be comfortable.
