WISCONSIN SPORTS ROUND-UP: Packers finally sell-out playoff game
GREEN BAY - The Green Bay Packers have finally sold out for Sunday’s NFL Wildcard game against San Francisco, avoiding a local blackout.
Corporate partners of the Packers bought out the remaining tickets on Friday. NFL rules require games to be sold out 72 hours in advance to avoid blackout… it would have been the first in 30 years. The weather for Sunday afternoon’s game is to partially blame – temperatures could fall below zero, with a wind chill of minus-11.
