The Chiefs are anticipating a sellout Sunday when they take on the Tennessee Titans in their season opener at Arrowhead Stadium, a team spokesman said Wednesday.

Tickets for the game are still available, though the spokesman declined to say how many have been sold.

Team president Mark Donovan said last week that the Chiefs will surpass 60,000 season-ticket members this season, a significant number for a stadium that seats roughly 76,000.

The Chiefs have until noon Thursday to avoid a television blackout, though the league regularly gives teams extensions to avoid doing so.

According to Vivid Seats, a secondary ticket marketplace, the Chiefs-Titans game has the third-lowest average ticket price in Week 1 at $124 per seat. In comparison, the Thursday Night opener feating Green Bay at Seattle is the highest at $569.
