Chargers announce season ticket prices for StubHub center

If you want to see the Chargers play in Los Angeles, you can now buy tickets. But you should move quickly, because the demand may outweigh the supply — even though the tickets have been priced to reflect the relative scarcity of the product.

For the 30,000-seat StubHub Center, season-ticket packages range from $700 to $3,750 for 10 games (two preseason games, eight regular-season games). As calculated by the Los Angeles Times,  ticket prices will average $192, and roughly eleven percent of the tickets will cost less than $100.

“Playing at StubHub Center is going to offer fans a rare opportunity to see NFL action in a uniquely intimate setting,” Chargers president of business operations A.G. Spanos said in a statement.  “Every seat at StubHub Center will feel close to the action and fans will be right there with us on every play.  Not many venues can make this claim and we expect to sell out quickly.”

In 2016, the Rams made season tickets at the much larger Coliseum available for prices ranging from $360 per seat to $2,025. Four of the eight packages to Chargers games in 2017 cost more than $2,025 per ticket.

While it may not be a challenge to sell 30,000 tickets quickly for 2017 and 2018, the Chargers realize that it may not be easy to turn 30,000 season-ticket holders into 70,000 when they move to Inglewood in a shared stadium with the Rams as of 2019. Last year, the Rams quickly secured 56,000 season-ticket deposits upon returning to L.A., with the right to buy up to eight season tickets. The Rams had 70,000 season-ticket holders in 2016, a number they capped to reflect the available season tickets at Inglewood.

In 2016, the Chargers will host in the regular season Philadelphia, Washington, Buffalo, Cleveland, Miami, and their AFC West rivals from Oakland, Kansas City, and Denver.

    Season ticketholders will be able to make a killing reselling those tickets. There’ll be enough opposing fans even if nobody cares about the Chargers. Wouldn’t be surprised if every game looks like an away game.

    ……Spanos has to be the dumbest NFL owner ever….and thats saying alot with the NFLs history of some owners.

    This is going to be such a disaster it might finally rid us of Goodell and his reign of pure incompetence. Like watching the Hindenburg try to land on the Titanic.

    >>If you want to see the Chargers play in Los Angeles, you can now buy tickets. But you should move quickly, because the demand may outweigh the supply — even though the tickets have been priced to reflect the relative scarcity of the product.

    The keyword is “may”. Prices “may” rise.
    Then again, they may not.
    Unless you sell to visiting fans.

    “relative scarcity” of the product, that’s a good one.
    Its scarcity AND demand.
    An autographed picture of me is scarce, but alas there is no demand.

  7. tindeaux says: Feb 14, 2017 5:01 PM

    30,000 away fans would do it for Spanos. he doesn’t really care whose fan you are. just show up for the game. #smh

  8. shieldsisland37 says: Feb 14, 2017 5:01 PM

    What a joke! If I lived in L.A., I would go for fun as a date night or with a buddy. But to buy season tickets to watch the “L.A. Chargers”, who are not even a real thing, for that kind of money is ludicrous. I can not wait until they fail and have to move back to their real, loyal fans.

    Id rather see “the great Wall” in 3d twice

  10. granadafan says: Feb 14, 2017 5:09 PM

    No one wants the Chargers here in LA. There was zero buzz before the move. People may go to the game for the novelty factor but that’s it. The Stubhub center is a great stadium for soccer and the LA Galaxy. The Chargers can and should go back to San Diego where they belong.

    We already have one scummy owner in Kroenke, but at least he’s building his own stadium. Spanos just wants everything for free.

    Back in 1979 I was living in Tampa and bought a Buccaneers season ticket. My seat was on the side, 10 rows up from the field right even with the goal line. I received tickets for 8 regular season games and THREE preseason games.

    Cost….$89.00

  13. babygaga19 says: Feb 14, 2017 5:14 PM

    What a joke! Hey Gagabolts. My garage is available. I’ll cut you a fair deal.

  14. sdcharger123 says: Feb 14, 2017 5:19 PM

    This is almost double what they charged in SD.

  15. 6250claimer says: Feb 14, 2017 5:20 PM

    “Uniquely intimate setting”. LOL! Have you guys seen this place? It looks like a glorified high school “stadium”. In an era when the owners “need” a $1b+ palace to call home, this pencil putz is attempting to spin this joke of a facility into something special.

    The NFL is overdue to hit a tipping point with the insane pace of rising ticket prices, demand for public funds for splashy new facilities, breathtakingly incompetent officiating, and perhaps most threatening of all, the rise of dirt-cheap home theater setups that are making many people rethink the concept of spending mega dollars to see the product in person. This LA experiment is going to be a disaster and represent when the NFL jumped the shark and the great decline began. MARK IT!

  16. halfcentaur says: Feb 14, 2017 5:22 PM

    Were they even selling 30,000 tickets in San Diego? To Chargers fans, i mean. Not to the Raider/Chiefs fans who showed up to take over and make Philip Rivers say playing at Qualcomm felt like being on the road.

    This move is a joke, i think 2 LA teams is a joke, but where were you Charger fans? Seriously?

    ______________________________________

    That’s pretty much all they ever got at Qualcomm, away fans anyway. No difference. I think Spanos moved to L.A. to increase the teams value, and he’ll sell in a couple of years. and I won’t be surprised when the new owner announes he’s building a new stadium in SD.

  18. schmitty2 says: Feb 14, 2017 5:24 PM

    It’s definitely intimate seeing as it’s a SOCCER stadium. Having been there I can say you will feel like Phillip Rivers is standing next you when he yells out “Well golly darn it!” after throwing a pick six in the 4th quarter of a close game.

  19. Athena says: Feb 14, 2017 5:26 PM

    Please hurry up and rebrand so I can completely cut ties to this franchise and it’s incredibly idiotic ownwership

  20. reptar310 says: Feb 14, 2017 5:28 PM

    I’m actually interested in this experiment of playing in a much smaller stadium. If people like it much better and the Chargers can make almost as much money then maybe it’ll catch on. Why do we need billion dollar stadiums in the first place?

  21. silvernblackpride says: Feb 14, 2017 5:28 PM

    The Scabhub what a deal

    Overrated..overpriced …over the top Deadbolt tickets

    LOL

  22. babygaga19 says: Feb 14, 2017 5:33 PM

    @6250

    Great post! I got priced out of tickets a while back and frankly don’t have the time to devote a full day to a 3 hour game. I’ve got my leather couch, wide screen, Bose sound, good food in the kitchen, beer in the fridge that doesn’t cost $10/ bottle, friends come over and Sunday Ticket. That is my ultimate NFL experience these days. The NFL is getting dangerously close to over saturation and greed.

  23. THX 138 says: Feb 14, 2017 5:35 PM

    $500 for 2 tix and parking? Pass.

  24. upnorthvikesfan says: Feb 14, 2017 5:36 PM

    Spanos should have taken the Chargers to play in London instead for two years. But I suppose the NFL wouldn’t have liked that since it would prove having a team based there (even for just two years) wouldn’t work out.

  25. harrisonhits2 says: Feb 14, 2017 5:36 PM

    Chargers are a bad team. When the away team is also bad they’ll be lucky if there are 5000 fans in the seats, especially towards the end of the season if the Chargers have been knocked out of any chance at making the playoffs.

    Look at their opponents on the home games.

    Bills? Maybe a few of those fans will travel especially if its later in the season and they can get a weekend away from the cold.

    Donks? Might get a good house of their fans but maybe not.

    Browns? Get real, maybe a smattering of Browns fans trying to get a weekend away from the cold like the Bills fans might.

    KC? They’ll get a few thousand Chiefs fans but I doubt they’re going to fill that stadium for him.

    Fins? Laughable. Miami is one of the easiest stadiums for away fans to get inexpensive tix at.

    Eagles? Nope, they’re not going to have a lot fans travel there.

    Raiders? Probably get a good crowd from them.

    Redskins? Maybe a few thousand, especially if they mange to compete for the division title, but maybe not.

    Hope the Chargers fans stay away in huge numbers and the stadium is left half empty or more every game, with mostly away fans showing up.

  26. RandyinRoxbury says: Feb 14, 2017 5:47 PM

    By late October each Charger home game will still have 20K empty seats..lol

  27. mongo3401 says: Feb 14, 2017 5:49 PM

    29,999 Raider fans at the game. Epic

  28. winningisabrees says: Feb 14, 2017 5:56 PM

    No home field advantage, SMH

  29. silverandblack052099 says: Feb 14, 2017 6:04 PM

    Can you believe the nerve on this Spanos guy?!!

  30. harrisonhits2 says: Feb 14, 2017 6:14 PM

    “Can you believe the GREED on this Spanos guy?!!”

    Fixed your statement for you.

  31. sd5547 says: Feb 14, 2017 6:19 PM

    The LA Chargers are a failed franchise, GREED is not a sport. As a season ticket holder of 30 years I applaud the rest of the NFL fans for booing and ripping this classless owner and his tool job for a son.

    Please make sure this team is a total failure.

  32. correctingerrors says: Feb 14, 2017 6:33 PM

    Calling all LA football fans!
    Come see your favorite team beat the Chargers! or
    Come see how the Chargers will lose this time! or
    Watch how pathetic we can make the end of Rivers’ career!

    Calling any leftover SD Charger fans too! Just drive through hectic traffic for 4 hours, breath smog all day, pay $400, and the same ol’ Chargers team will still find ways to lose and disappoint.

    Good luck on selling those tickets Spanholes!

    @Harrisonhits2:

    I find it fascinating that you make yourself the spokesperson for 1/3 of the teams in the league.
    I know that everyone on here is some kind of so-called self-appointed expert on… well, everything, but I think you’re biting off a little too much to be the end-all and know-all of what every teams fan base will do.

    It’s rare if you never experience a high school game.

    Do NFL teams play in high school games? If not, then your comment has nothing whatsoever to do with “seeing NFL action in a uniquely intimate setting” and is therefore pointless.

  36. mdintino1420 says: Feb 14, 2017 7:55 PM

    It will be an amazing atmosphere at the Stubhub Center. Los Angeles is pumped about Charger football! San Diego isn’t an NFL city anymore. The Horns and the Bolts rule Los Angeles, and they always will.

    It will be great when the Rams play the Chargers in preseason. No travel expenses. Los Angeles fans need to pick between the Rams and Chargers. There will be many divided loyalties.

  37. buffaloboys says: Feb 14, 2017 8:36 PM

    So how awkward is it going to be for the NFL to push its authentic NFL Ticke tExchange reseller web site for games at the Stub Hub Center? Seems Stub Hub could have a marketing “field” day with this idiosyncrasy!

  38. captainwhodat says: Feb 14, 2017 8:37 PM

    oh, I have to pay them, they’re not paying me…my bad…

  39. lance19 says: Feb 14, 2017 9:10 PM

    $192 x 2 = $384
    for “average” seats to watch the Chargers
    battle the Browns…
    oh, yeah, lots of people hate their money
    enough for that to happen, Deano… :p

  40. reekohblog says: Feb 14, 2017 9:56 PM

    What a bunch of sour San Diego residents. You hate the team for leaving, yet continue to make time keeping up with their moves. Just sad. Get over it already. You had your chance and will end up with a soccer team.

  41. mclennon99 says: Feb 15, 2017 12:50 PM

    So do these prices include the “self-hands-on” security guards too?
