The Raiders’ game Sunday against the Cleveland Browns will include tributes to owner Al Davis throughout the game, according to CEO Amy Trask, and the club moved toward ensuring a full stadium with complimentary tickets given to season-ticket holders.
Season-ticket holders were sent an e-mail that said, “Your guests, will be our guests” with instructions on how to get two additional tickets. The allotment of tickets was exhausted within 24 hours, and no more complimentary tickets remain.
A follow-up e-mail was sent to season ticket holders that said, “While some of you will be disappointed by this, we hope you will agree with us that the most important thing is that the stadium is full and that so very many people will be able to pay tribute to Al Davis.”
Those who requested tickets while still available were told tickets would be assigned to their account in “within the next 24 hours.”
If the game is not blacked out locally, it will be the first time three consecutive games were televised locally since 2008, when the first four games of the season were on local TV.
