Packer Game May Be "Blacked Out" in Wausau

Posted at 6:11 AM

If you were hoping to watch the Green bay Packer play the 49ers this Sunday from the comfort of your home, you may be watching infomercials instead.

This Sunday's Packer playoff game still has over 7-tousand tickets to be sold before the NFL will grant TV rights for much of Wisconsin. The remaining tickets must be sold before 3:40 this afternoon or the game will be blacked out on Green Bay, Milwaukee and Wausau TV stations. League rules mandate stadium ticket be sold before the game is broadcast in home TV markets, this rule primarily effect NFL teams that have trouble selling tickets to games.

The last Green Bay game to be blacked out in Wisconsin was 1983.
