Rams season ticket holders bought up every ticket to Sunday’s NFC Championship Game, but there are no restrictions on those tickets being re-sold to 49ers fans — raising concerns for the Rams that their home field will feel like a road game.

When the Rams and 49ers met in the regular season finale, 49ers fans were so loud inside SoFi Stadium in Los Angeles that the Rams had to use a silent count. That led to the Rams asking fans not to sell their NFC Championship Game tickets to 49ers fans, and putting a restriction on sales outside the Los Angeles area.

But that restriction has now been lifted, raising questions about how many of those Rams season ticket holders will choose to make a profit by re-selling to the highest bidder, which may be a 49ers fan.

The game is sold out. Our Season Ticket members bought up all available tickets during a presale over the weekend, so there is no policy in place,” the Rams said in a statement to ABC 7 in Los Angeles.

The 49ers have plenty of fans in the Los Angeles area, so even if the geographic restriction were in place, plenty of 49ers fans could get in. Ultimately, both teams should prepare for the possibility that they’ll need to use a silent count.

  1. The 49ers use a silent count?
    Riiiiggghhhttt.
    That will never happen.
    There is no such animal as a Rams fan in LA.

  2. Talk to Indy or Atlanta. They have experience with crowd noise management that could be leveraged.

  3. It’s not really a question. Obviously going to be a sea of red again. Rams season ticket holders bought up the inventory, but you can see on various websites that at least half of them put their seats up for resale on the secondary market.

    Ticket brokers and scalpers cashing in. Saw numerous Ram fans on social media bragging about how they turned a 400-500% profit.

    Rams fan support in LA is as tepid and lame as it gets. Oh well, I guess. Being a Ram fan means rooting for the team, the players and coaches, but not the owner, not the jerks who sold out and won’t show support for the team in the biggest game of the season.

  4. If I was a Rams season ticket holder and the team restricted what I could do with a ticket that I PAID FULL PRICE FOR, I would be outraged.

  5. Lol Watch Niners fans fill up the new stadium…

    Moves the team and spends $6 billion on a stadium that is full of opposing fans

    Enjoy the Karma, Kroenke.

  6. You could of stayed in St Louis . I’m kinda hoping for a sea of red now just out of spite

  7. The crowd will definitely be an advantage for the 49ers in the last few minutes as all the LA fans will have left with 7 minutes left in the game.

  8. Go Niners. The Rams winning a SB would set a horrible precedent for the NFL. Nothing impressive about super teams winning championships.

  9. No one deserves a stadium filled with opposing team’s fans more than Stan Kroenke.

  10. Worked out great the Niners will play in front of their home crowd for the NFCCG 😄

  11. That’s what happens when your fanbase are nothing but frauds. You can hate us if you want, but this kind of stuff doesn’t happen at Heinz Field…

  12. Laughable at best, Rams fans in LA.

    The only reason why the RAIDERS were not allowed to move to LA is because LA belongs to the RAIDERS.

    Stan would’ve built the house, the RAIDERS would’ve owned it.

    Rams have a limited following, LA will always belong to the RAIDERS.

    Yeah, even if selling to any SF fan was a hard nope of my own accord, I would still resent being told I could not.

  14. If you’re a season ticket holder and you sell your tickets for profit to the fans of the visiting team for the NFC Championship game, you should have your tickets revoked.

    And then you call yourself a fan? Nothing more dispicable than trading dignity for cash.

  15. Players go to the highest bidder every offseason, fans should be expected to be no different. If I could multiply my money, not get beer spilled on me, and be in the comfort of my own home, with a better visual of anything you can get, no matter how good the seat, in person…. I’m selling out. Granted, you may not get the “experience” but I fault no fan for taking the money.

    Happens all the time in the real world.

  17. People won’t listen as it relates to getting vaxed…u think they will allow you to tell them what to do with their tickets?

  18. A few times I paid for my Bengals season tickets by selling the playoff games (yes they used to go to the playoffs often and had a few home games). I’d try to find a Bengals fan to take them, but when we’re talking about making enough money to pay for most of whole season’s worth of tickets it’s really a no brainer to a 22 year old kid that was really only there to get drunk and yell really loud. I really have no problem with people scalping their own tickets.

  19. Exactly what you get for moving the team out of St. Louis into a transplant city!!! I love it!!

    Correct, because Californians don’t move to Pittsburgh.

  21. The concept of a home field advantage due to home town fans has been slipping away for several years. In every playoff game so far, the visiting fans have been present in enough numbers to be heard. Not surprising, considering the cost of NFL tickets – and in the playoffs they jack that price way up (post-season ticket prices are set by the league, not home team).

  22. People say that Los Angeles isn’t a sports town and aren’t passionate about football. Los Angeles has great football fans, but it’s a 49er and Raider town, not a Chargers and Rams town. Maybe when Generation Z grows us it will become a Rams town, but for right now they’re rolling with The Niner Empire. The 49ers held California down when the Rams abandoned Los Angeles.

  23. You have to be wealthy to attend this game. The overwhelming majority of local fans cannot afford the price of tickets. Regular season games were hideously expensive. The local middle-class riff raff can’t afford to go.

  24. As a Cardinals season ticket holder, I wish my team would restrict resales. It SUCKS sitting next to self-appointed “Superfans” of whatever team we are playing each week. My seats are surrounded by scalpers and so every week is a new adventure in drunken stupidity.

  25. Whaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa – we relocated from far away to LA and now we want to complain that there are going to be too many of the enemies’ fans in the stands. This is too precious.

  26. It will be an 80% RAMS CROWD. Rams fans aren’t going to sell their tickets for a conference championship game. It will bee a sea of blue and yellow. GO RAMS!!

    Well if you value dignity that much does that mean you would pay top dollar?
