Found December 14, 2012 on Pro Football Zone:
According to USA Today Sports, the San Diego Chargers are so desperate to sell tickets that they used Groupon to help them try to sell out this Sunday’s game against the Panthers. Chargers waded into the land of discounted microdermabrasion treatments and half-priced speedboat tours this week by offering tickets for Sunday’s game on Groupon. For the low price of $68, buyers would receive one endzone seat and a $20 voucher for use at Qualcomm Stadium concession stands. According to the utsandiego.com, the same ticket, with applicable fees, costs $76.25 on Ticketmaster, and that doesn’t include the concession stand voucher. It’s the first time the team has used the online deal service. When the Groupon launched on Monday, 13,000 tickets remained unsold for Sunday’s 1:05 PT kickoff against the Carolina Panthers. On Friday, it was reported that 11,000 tickets were left, triggering the Chargers’ eighth home blackout in the past 16 day games. Now that it’s almost impossible for the Charge...

Ryan Mathews: A Week 15 PPR Fantasy Football Sleeper.

San Diego Chargers selling tickets through Groupon

Tweet   The good news for the San Diego Chargers is they’re in second place in the AFC West.

The Chargers Resort To Groupon – Still Get Blacked Out

  The Chargers, who can’t seem to do anything right lately (I’d call them “loveable” but that’s far, far from the truth) resorted to using Groupon on Monday to try to sell out this Sunday’s home game against the Carolina Panthers. The Groupon was for an end zone seat priced at $68, which included a $20 voucher for use at the concession stands.  Per Ticketmaster, the...

Carolina Panthers at San Diego Chargers: Week 15 NFL Pick

Carolina Panthers (4-9) at San Diego Chargers (5-8) I picked the Chargers to win at home against the Ravens and Bengals respectively in week 12 and 13 because, among other reasons, they always start playing really well at this point in the season, even when their season has been lost. Well, they couldn’t quite close the deal in either of those games, though they made it close and...
