NFL grants ticket deadline extension for Packers-49ers game

GREEN BAY (WITI) — The Green Bay Packers say 3,000 tickets remain available for Sunday’s playoff game against the San Francisco 49ers at Lambeau Field. That’s down from about 13,000 on Tuesday morning, December 31st.

With significant progress made in selling the initial 40,000 tickets available, the Packers have received an extension from the NFL on the TV blackout deadline. The current deadline to sell all non-premium tickets and lift the blackout is now Friday, January 3rd at 4 p.m.

If the game doesn’t sell out, the Packers face a league-mandated TV blackout in Green Bay and Milwaukee. A Packers spokesperson confirms with our sister station in Green Bay, there is no rule for post season lifting TV blackout if 85 percent of tickets are sold.

Green Bay Packers head coach Mike McCarthy told reporters on Wednesday he’s not concerned about the tickets remaining. During his Wednesday news conference at Lambeau Field, he told reporters the environment at Lambeau Field will be “incredible” — and that “these are the games fans live for.”

The NFL offers three ways for you to obtain your football tickets: via one of the league ticket offices, via, or from other fans here on the official NFL Ticket Exchange.
