Chargers & Rams Had Embarrassingly Awful Attendance At ‘Fight For LA’ Preseason Matchup (VIDEO)
There are now two teams in the Los Angeles area that are fighting to have the bigger fan base and the first round of the battle happened on Saturday when the team’s held a ‘fight for LA’ promotion to get fans pumped about the upcoming season.
There was only one problem. Not many people showed up.
The Rams claimed they sold 58,561 tickets to the preseason game, but it looked like 30K decided to do something better with their time.

Preseason or not, a terrible attendance for an area that has 18.1 million people and the two of the teams combined couldn’t get 60,000 of them to even show up for a game does not bode well for future games.
