Blackout lifted for Seahawks game

Seattle Times staff


The Seahawks' playoff game at home on Saturday against the St. Louis Rams will be aired on local television, the Seahawks announced Thursday.

The NFC game will be broadcast on KOMO (Channel 4) on Saturday. Kickoff is scheduled at Qwest Field for 1:30 p.m.

The playoff game was in danger of being blacked out in the Seattle area because about 6,000 tickets remained yesterday, but the NFL extended its deadline 24 hours. By Thursday afternoon, less than 1,000 tickets remained, a sellout by NFL standards.

About 66,000 tickets were purchased over a 72-hour span, giving the Seahawks 16 consecutive home sellouts. Seattle's record over that span, the team's longest string of sellouts since 1992, is 12-3.

Remaining tickets, most of which are $68, can be puchased by calling Ticketmaster at 206-622-4295, on the Web at or at the Seahawks' box office at Qwest Field.
