The San Diego Chargers are actively marketing toward Kansas City Chiefs fans. At Qualcomm Stadium.â†µ
According to Arrowhead Addict, via Deadspin, the Chargers have sent a personalized email to senior editor Patrick Allen, inviting the "Arrowhead Addict's" to purchase a block of at least 15 tickets to the November 1 game between San Diego and Kansas City at Qualcomm Stadium.â†µ
San Diego could have taken advantage of the newest NFL blackout rule, which drops the threshold of 100% of general tickets sold down to 85% of general tickets sold, meaning, the game will not be blacked out if only 87% of the tickets are sold.â†µ
Instead, the Chargers are declining this option and are instead marketing to opposing fans. This will likely draw the ire of Chargers fans, but hey, it's all a business. If there's money to be made off of Chiefs fans, who can blame the Chargers for looking to make a few extra dollars?â†µ
We'll see on November 1 how many Chiefs fans make the trip.
