Oakland Raiders-Jacksonville Jaguars game is a sell out at O.co Coliseum, to be televised locally


For one week it appears that Mark Davis won’t have to worry about the O.co Coliseum not being at full capacity as every ticket has now been officially sold for the Raiders home opener Sunday afternoon against the the Jacksonville Jaguars.

Excitement around the debut of Terrelle Pryor and the promising performance of the entire Raider team last Sunday in Indianapolis has a buzz around the Raiders and their rebuilding process. Even an usually poor road draw in the Jaguars won’t dampen the home opener, which should be an expected sell out anyways given the passionate Raider Nation.

ESPN’s Paul Gutierrez was the first to break the news on Twitter:

The sellout means that the NFL’s regional blackout won’t be imposed on the Oakland Raiders fans who are unable to attend Sunday’s game, always an issue during a couple of weeks each season in the Oakland area if the O.co can’t be filled. Game one of eight at the Coliseum won’t be an issue and given the play of the Raiders early on this season and the aforementioned buzz that is surrounding it, expect a more than a few sellouts in 2013 as Mark Davis looks to get a new stadium deal done.

    TP is impacting the teams play and attendance. DA and Reggie MC were/are clueless morons to have slept on TP and what he brings to the table.
