Just one week after NFL owners got together and voted to approve the Rams request to relocate from St. Louis to Los Angeles, the team started taking $100 deposits for 2016 season tickets. The Los Angeles Rams are expected to play three seasons at the L.A. Coliseum before moving into their new $2.5 billion Inglewood home in 2019.
On Monday morning, 5,000 deposits were paid for in the first 5 minutes they became available to the public. The Los Angeles Rams released an update Wednesday night saying they have collected 45,000 deposits in just two days. These deposits are refundable and act as placeholders for your spot in a virtual line to buy season tickets once they officially go on sale.
According to the Los Angeles Rams news release, each deposit allows the individual the ability to purchase up to eight season tickets based on availability. This will happen on a first come first serve basis from when the deposit was received. Those still looking to secure Rams season tickets should act fast.
While speaking to reporters last week, Rams CEO Kevin Demoff revealed that prices for the Ram’s temporary L.A. stadium are going to be similar to what fans paid last season in St. Louis. The L.A. Coliseum has a capacity of over 90,000, but a seat cap for the Rams has not yet been specified. Season-ticket holders in the Coliseum will be given the first opportunity to purchase seats in the new Inglewood stadium once available. So far, Los Angeles super fans such as Magic Johnson have pledged their allegiance to the team and are urging other L.A. residents to do the same.
