Rams Sell All 70,000 Season Tickets For 1st Season Back In Los Angeles
I think Los Angeles Rams fans are excited to have their team back.
It had been 21 years since Los Angeles had a football team to call their own. But that all changed this offseason, when the team formerly known as the St. Louis Rams moved back to L.A (technically, Inglewood) to play in the nation’s second-largest media market.
How did fans repay the team? By buying every single season ticket available. According to Sam Farmer of the Los Angeles Times, in just six hours, about 24,000 fans scooped up all 70,000 tickets that were made available.
“To sell out of season tickets in the first six hours upon our return to Los Angeles is both humbling and a reminder of how excited Angelinos are about the return of the Rams and the NFL,” Rams COO Kevin Demoff told Sam Farmer of the Los Angeles Times. “As both Los Angeles’ first pro sports team and its newest sports team, the bond between this team and the community is evident and strengthening each day.”
The Rams will start the 2016 season on the road against the San Francisco 49ers.
