Packers Game will Air on TV Despite not Selling Out Lambeau
Just two years ago the Green Bay Packers narrowly avoided a blackout of the game in the Green Bay and Milwaukee TV markets due to the NFL's local blackout rule. The rule stated that if a game was not sold out 72 hours prior to kickoff, the game would not be broadcast in local TV markets.
The rule has been suspended since 2015.
In 2014 when the 49ers came to Lambeau for the playoffs the Packers had 3,000 tickets left to sell 72 hours prior to the game. The team was given an extension by the NFL to sell those tickets and eventually area business teamed together to buy the tickets and avoid a blackout.
This year, a limited number of tickets remain available for purchase for Sunday afternoon’s Wild Card playoff game at Lambeau Field between the Packers and the New York Giants.
The tickets are available through Ticketmaster online only, and ticket prices range from $118 to $145, depending on location.
