Press release from the Lions:
The Detroit Lions have reached a sellout for Sunday's game against the Chicago Bears. By reaching a sellout by today's 1 p.m. deadline, Sunday's game will air live in the local television markets (Metro Detroit, Lansing, Saginaw/Flint and Toledo markets), including WJBK-TV FOX 2.
Fans still have the opportunity to purchase tickets to Sunday's game vs. Chicago. A few hundred tickets returned by the Bears from their ticket allotment are now available to the general public.
This season the Lions ended up selling out 4 of their 8 games. That's not bad all things considered. Hopefully starting 2010 with a sellout is a sign of things to come.
