The San Diego Chargers have sold enough tickets to lift the local blackout for Monday night’s Chargers-Broncos showdown at 5:30 p.m. at Qualcomm Stadium. The game will be shown throughout Southern California on ESPN and fans in San Diego can also watch the simulcast on KFMB-TV, Channel 8. Mike Tirico and Jon Gruden will call the game for ESPN, while Lisa Salters reports from the sidelines.
There are still a limited number of tickets available, including some individual Club seats, which are some of the best seats in the stadium. Fans can purchase tickets online at www.chargers.com
, or by calling Ticketmaster at (800) 745-3000. While a very limited number of tickets are available for Monday night’s Chargers-Broncos game, more than 11,600 tickets are still available for the Chargers next home game against the Kansas City Chiefs on Thursday night, Nov. 1 at 5:20 p.m.
The Chargers are once again warning fans to be wary of fraudulent tickets. It’s unfortunate, but every week fans are turned away with counterfeit tickets. The only way to guarantee tickets are authentic is to purchase them directly through Chargers.com, Ticketmaster.com or the NFL’s official resale provider: NFL.com/TicketExchange. Tickets obtained from other sources could be counterfeit, so fans are urged to be extra careful and double-check the source of their tickets.
The Chargers will be celebrating Breast Cancer Awareness Month at Monday night’s game and a number of players from both teams will be wearing pink to acknowledge the importance of screening and early detection in women. The Chargers will also be wearing their Power Blue alternate jerseys for Monday night’s game.
At halftime of Monday night’s game, pro golfer and San Diego native Phil Mickelson will attempt the “KPMG Chip4Charity.” If Mickelson hits a target that will be 100 yards away, KPMG is going donate as much as $1 million to First Book, a non-profit organization supported by KPMG’s Family For Literacy program. KPMG LLP, the audit, tax and advisory firm (www.kpmg.com/us), is the U.S. member firm of KPMG International Cooperative (“KPMG International.”) KPMG International’s member firms have 145,000 people, including more than 8,000 partners, in 152 countries. They have been a long-time sponsor of Mickelson’s golf career.
Fans planning to attend Monday night’s Chargers-Broncos game are encouraged to arrive early and carpool or use public transportation, including the Trolley. The team is expecting its largest crowd of the season and the parking lot is expected to fill and be closed well before kickoff. Fans also are reminded to allow plenty of time to get into the stadium as long lines are likely due to enhanced screening procedures at the gates.
Fans can also listen to the radio broadcast on Rock 105.3 and XTRA Sports 1360 in San Diego, and 1350 AM in Los Angeles and Orange County with Josh Lewin and Hank Bauer calling the game and Mike Costa reporting from the field. KLAC 570 AM in Los Angeles and Orange County will also carry the national broadcast on the Dial Global Radio Network with Kevin Harlan calling the play-by-play, Dan Fouts providing analysis and Mark Malone reporting from the field. All Chargers games are also broadcast in Spanish on XHFG 107.3 FM in San Diego and KWKW 1330 AM in Los Angeles with Jorge Villanueva calling the play-by-play and Dante Lazcano offering game analysis.
