Blackout rules apply if Bengals are unable to sell out Sunday’s playoff game.

An all-out push is on to fill every seat at Paul Brown Stadium for the first round playoff game between the Bengals and the San Diego Chargers.

Team officials recently said about 8,000 tickets are still available, with a blackout possible if tickets go unsold.

The deadline for a sellout is 1p.m. Thursday but the league could extend it to Friday depending on the remaining tickets available.

A former Bengal has expressed interest in purchasing tickets. Chad Johnson tweeted Tuesday evening that he would “get the rest” if needed.

 

The Bengals aren’t the only team facing a possible blackout though. The Indianapolis Colts had about 5,000 tickets remaining as of Wednesday night. The league gave the team an extension to the rule that games must be sold out 72 hours before kickoff. The current deadline is set for Thursday afternoon. The Colts host the Kansas City Chiefs on Saturday at 3:35 p.m.

Tickets are available at the stadium’s ticket office, by phone and online at Ticketmaster.com.

WRBI will broadcast the Bengals game at 1 p.m. Sunday.
