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.

South Decatur Elementary School has introduced a new fundraising program called My School Color Run. The My School Color Run program aims to go beyond traditional fundraising. Rather than sell goods, the program aims to engage the entire student body in a fitness initiative that aims to instill a life-long healthy way of living. On Sept. 3, at 9 a.m., the students, staff, and community of South Decatur Elementary School will walk, jog, and run their way toward a healthier life while raising funds for the PTO’s Playground Revitalization Project. The color run will be held at South Decatur Jr-Sr High School, and will be open to the public. This is an untimed fun run. Participants will pass through four color stations throughout the course and end with a massive color toss at the My Color Run Post-Race Party. Participants will be treated to refreshments, music, and fun following the run. Interested participants of all ages can register by visiting www.SouthDecaturMSCR.eventbrite.com, or by completing a paper registration form prior to the event.
