Report: LA Chargers Used Casting Service To Get Fans in For Pep Rally
Last week, the Chargers ended their 55-year relationship with the city that saw way more downs than ups, including their struggle to actually get fans to show up for a game—and not have opposing fan bases take over the stadium, which they did regularly.
However, the few fans that they did have in San Diego will probably prove to be larger than the number of fans they have waiting for them in Los Angeles. The Chargers were officially introduced to the city on Wednesday, and not many people showed up for this pep rally. According to one fan, most of the people in the crowd were not fans of the team at all.
Twitter user @NickyFidget stated his brother got a call from a casting company to play a Chargers fan at the Forum on Wednesday, complete with jersey and all.
reports have surfaced stating that the Chargers used a casting call service to fill seats to play as “fans.” Tags still on their jerseys. pic.twitter.com/dypTzwiwsP

@JacobJminger details like earlier message said to. Posting was deleted which usually means they filled the quota. Brother took another call
