The Jaguars requested an extension today of the blackout deadline for Sunday's game vs. the Houston Texans. The National Football League granted the team an extension until 4:00 p.m. on Friday. The normal blackout deadline is 72 hours before kickoff, which would be 4:00 today.
The team has approximately 600 tickets remaining to reach the blackout number, and is encouraging fans to take advantage of this opportunity to buy those tickets before Friday's deadline in order to avoid a blackout.
For fans wishing to see the game, tickets can be purchased online at jaguars.com, by calling (904) 633-2000 or at the Alltel Stadium Ticket Office. The Jaguars Ticket Office will be open until 5:00 p.m. today, 9:00 to 5:00 on Friday, and 9:00 to 3:00 on Saturday.
If the blackout is lifted the game will air live on WTEV-CBS 47 in the Jacksonville area. Fans will be able to listen to the game live on WOKV (690 AM) and WJGL (96.9 FM) radio.
On Sunday, the game-day ticket office (located between Gates 2 and 3) will open at 10:00 a.m., and to avoid potential long lines, fans are encouraged to arrive early to purchase or pick up tickets.
