The Chargers were on their way to a sellout of their season tickets for the 2017 season last week and they finished the job in the last few days.

The team announced on Monday that “all season tickets currently available” for their first season in Los Angeles have been sold. The Chargers began offering seats to existing season ticket holders in late February and opened sales to the general public on March 9.

The team will be playing at the StubHub Center, which will have the NFL’s smallest capacity at 30,000 seats.

In their announcement, the Chargers said that some tickets are being held back for players’ families, visiting teams and “promotional purposes.” They added that they could put more seats up for sale in the future if some of those seats are freed up as well as “from additional improvements at StubHub Center.”

  1. I really hope that the Stub Hub experiment works. I think more intimate crowds with smaller stadiums is EXACTLY the thing the NFL needs. I put this in the same category as scaling back on commercials.

    There are elements of the old school that are worth reviving.

  2. Big whoop. Stadium seats 30,000 and you’ve got to figure that 5000 seats in the corners and nosebleeds were held back for single game sales. That means in the 2nd largest city in the country they sold a whopping 25K season tickets. How exciting (not!).

  3. Glad they sold out. The local college has a 70,000+ seating capacity and it sells out every game every year, but it has worked hard to maintain a loyal fan base. It will be interesting to see the level of support that LA will provide to the Chargers and the Rams.

  4. People said the Chargers were hated so much in LA they wouldn’t even sell out the tiny Stub Hub center. Now it’s sold out and people say big deal. Sports fans are so pathetic.

  5. 30,000 only limits the crowd to the more moneyed set. They aren’t notorious for their raucousness. Home field advantage will be nonexistent at this place.

  6. The Charger fans that remain have officially lost the right to tease Oakland about tarps.

    The hell they have! we have NEVER had a tarp. Bolts are playing in the only facility available, and in fact, sold out at extremely high prices.

    Exactly! and you gotta love the hypocrites in the press that have crucified the Bolts for moving, yet say nothing but positive things about that ghetto team from the north moving to vegas.

  9. Dean was pissed he had to buy $28,156 tickets to get a sell out … now how is he going to convince people to actually go to a game lol (maybe free beer)
