LOS ANGELES - More than 56,000 people placed deposits for Los Angeles Rams season tickets for the coming season at Los Angeles Memorial Coliseum, the team announced Tuesday.
The team began accepting $100 season-ticket deposits on Jan. 18, and more than 45,000 deposits were made in the first two days. The deposit program ended Monday.
"We are inspired by how enthusiastically NFL fans in Southern California have responded to the return of the Los Angeles Rams," said Keven Demoff, the team's chief operating officer and executive vice president. "We will reward their passion by providing a terrific game day experience at both the Coliseum this fall and ultimately in Inglewood. We can't wait to welcome our fans on Sundays and become an integral part of the greater Los Angeles community."
Fans who placed deposits will have the priority opportunity to purchase Rams season tickets for the 2016 season at the Coliseum will also receive a guaranteed spot on the official waiting list for the team's still-to-be-built stadium in Inglewood, which is supposed to open in time for the 2019 season. They will also receive access to 2016 single-game tickets and any available ticket packages before the general public; exclusive access to season tickets during the 2017 and 2018 seasons, if available; and exclusive access to official team events, content and giveaways.
The cost of tickets has not been announced.
Demoff said earlier the prices would likely be comparable to those in St. Louis. Season ticket prices in St. Louis for the 2015 season ranged from $300 to $1,750 for 10 games, two in the preseason and eight in the regular season.
The Rams will play nine games at the Coliseum in 2016, two in the preseason and seven in the regular season, with one "home" game being played in London.
The team has not "looked at ticket pricing" for the Inglewood stadium, but "they might not be what they were in St. Louis," Demoff said.
The Inglewood stadium will have a "personal seat license" program will be in effect for most seats. That program, which is used at many professional sports stadiums across the nation, requires buyers to pay a license fee -- often in the thousands of dollars -- for each seat, in addition to the actual ticket price.
According to the team's website, details of the program haven't been set, but "we do anticipate the majority of the seats if not all will require some type of a personal seat license with differing price categories based upon seating locations and amenities."
