Raiders announce sellout of moved game

October, 3, 2013
ALAMEDA, Calif. -- Despite so much uncertainty regarding location and time and an ultimate switch in kickoff time to 11:35 p.m. ET/8:35 p.m. PT, the Oakland Raiders announced Thursday that Sunday’s game against the San Diego Chargers has sold out and a local television blackout will be lifted.

The game will be televised locally on KRON Channel 4, as well as the NFL Network.

That makes sellouts in 18 of the past 19 games for the Raiders, 38 of 59 since the team assumed ticket sales in 2006.

And the overall updated sellout/blackout number: the Raiders will now have televised locally 67 games with 80 blackouts since 1995, after returning from 13 seasons in Los Angeles.
