Thank you Charger fans for your support throughout the 2009 season. With your support we were able to sell enough tickets that allowed every regular season game to be broadcast in San Diego. In these tough economic times it allowed all Charger fans to watch our games in record numbers. We look forward to an exciting January and your continued support in 2010.
