And in case you were wondering how close the game was to selling out:
It now appears all Wild Card games this weekend will be sold out. According to the Green Bay Press Gazette, the Packers have fewer than 1,000 tickets left for Sunday’s game against the 49ers.
The ticket situation isn’t all that surprising when you consider . Sunday’s forecast predicts -5 degree weather by kickoff, and wind chills as low as 30 below.The National Weather Service has issued an advisory that warns of “An Arctic outbreak” with “near record temperatures and dangerously cold wind chills.”
The Colts just sold out thanks to a sponsor buying the last 1,200 tickets. Corporate partner Meijer has purchased the remaining 1,200 non-premium tickets to Saturday’s game against the Chiefs, making it a sellout. The tickets will be donated to local military families.
