NFL tickets are expensive enough that you would think some teams would chill out on the prices of parking. Just a bit? A little?
Not the Chargers. Even though the team is just playing preseason games, they are charging some crazy prices to fans in order to see backup players struggle against other backup players.
NYT best-selling author Jeff Pearlman was headed to Dignity Health Sports Park on Sunday to watch the Los Angeles Chargers take on the New Orleans Saints when parking became a bit of an issue.
Not because it was packed out with fans, but because the pricing around the stadium was ridiculous.
Here is a cool $100 fee for general parking:
Too much? Try this $60 fee that is miles away from the stadium:
Not really a huge surprise, since this was the pricing just last season around the same time.
This is even worse when you think about the fact that the Chargers are in the temporary stadium for this season until their new one officially opens in 2020. They can’t even pack out the temporary stadium, but somehow will figure out the attendance problem with a brand spanking new stadium.
