You Can Watch The Rams-Chargers Game At The Coliseum This Weekend For $7
The hype train for the NFL in L.A. is slowly chugging along. This Saturday it'll make a pitstop at the Coliseum, where the Rams and the Chargers will face off for a pre-season matchup at 5 p.m. It's just an exhibition game, sure, but it also marks the first time that both teams will face each other as rebranded L.A. teams (this is the Chargers' first season back in Los Angeles).
So, people are excited, right? Not really.
As noted at NBC4, tickets for the game have been going for as low as $6 on StubHub. The last we checked, they've jumped up to $7. Of course, these tickets are for the nosebleeds. Still, you can find seats right by the field that are going for about $20.
Seven bucks! A plate at Howlin' Ray's is more than that.
Anyway, to be fair to the Rams and the Chargers, the low prices aren't just the result of lack of interest. The timing is bad, as the Dodgers are playing that night at home, and the much-anticipated bout between Floyd Mayweather Jr. and Conor McGregor will be splashed across every television set in Los Angeles that evening.
Still. Yeah. Fanfare for the Rams and the Chargers has been disappointing. Though, if you're hoping to catch the Chargers at some point this year, Saturday may be your best option, as tickets for the Chargers' home games will be a blow to your wallet.
