Cardinals Announce Sellout For Season Opener

By  | 

TEMPE, Ariz. (AP) - The Arizona Cardinals' season opener against San Francisco on Sunday has sold out.

After the NFL gave the NFC champion Cardinals a 24-hour extension on the television blackout deadline, the team announced the sellout Friday.

The Cardinals said they had about 1,700 tickets remaining Thursday and the NFL extended the deadline to 1:15 p.m. MST Friday.

The Cardinals now have sold out all 35 games at University of Phoenix Stadium, which opened in 2006 in Glendale. But last January, the team needed two extensions from the league to sell out its first home playoff game, against Atlanta.
