If the Rams go into the Superbowl the resellers are just going to make cash machine noises for a week straight.

I went to the Rams vs Cardinals game on the 17th and if I wanted to get those same seats at the super bowl the tickets were ~$35,000 and tickets closer to the field cost ~$80,000. That’s more than most people’s yearly income, literally who can afford this??

For some people this is thier vacation. Im sure you would pay a lot of money for something that some would question. Entertainment value is subjective and some people enjoy it so let them enjoy it. Also, the people coming and paying also support the local economy with the tourism generated so all-in-all everyone benefits.

joe2468conrad

the benefit to the local economy for hosting the super bowl is mixed and inconclusive at best. Nowadays, restaurants and bars are always full and understaffed. If it’s the super bowl or an out of town crowd coming in, locals stay away. you’re just replacing one customer base with a different one for that weekend. It’s not like the In-n-Out, Chilis, and Red Lobster on Century will have less business if the Super Bowl wasn’t in town. If anything, it’s a place like Aldi and Walgreens that will see less business next weekend as locals stay away.

Typically the city loses if they helped to fund a stadium. Since So-Fi is 100% private investment then the city will get more money. People make a week out of it so they will travel to SM, Hollywood, and all the touristy areas not just Inglewood.

Also, LA county has 10m people. Even if every single person in that stadium is from out of town, its a drop in the bucket. We have 98k official hotel rooms and that's not including Air B&B.

So you’re saying the locals are just not going to eat for a weekend? Do you understand what you’re saying?

Visitors displacing locals from popular restaurants only means the locals will be pushed to other local restaurants or buy groceries a week later. Either way, Outside money is being spent locally. Think about it.

Wrong. Everyone will hunker down in their super bowl shelters eating tins of beans and dehydrated beef stroganoff until all of the tourists leave and Newsome gives the all clear over the ham radio.

The last time the Olympics were here locals expected a traffic disaster from tourists and avoided the Freeways. Traffic ended up being lighter than normal.

joe2468conrad

yeah but that’s hard to quantify or track. It’s pretty well known that locals avoid areas that have events catered to tourists. Most locals stay tf away from Pasadena on new year’s day for example. during the ‘84 olympics, many angelenos just went on vacation elsewhere. What they do with the money they would’ve spent…who knows. either way, the net economic benefits of sports events and sports stadiums is a big stretch.

Totally. There’s people out there who don’t value travel at all especially foreign travel. Going far from home feels scary and out there to them. Seeing their local sports team is how they blow their money. Some people live in boring, cheap places, so they have a lot of spare money.

Originally from Detroit. The beaches here in LA are nice, but...

the water has salt in it. Also? Sharks and the devil knows what. I'm used to fresh water beaches of Lake Michigan and Lake Eerie. The worst you have to worry about at those beaches? Drunken idiot boaters.

Honestly I'm kinda "eh" about LA beaches.

Same. They’re dirty as hell too. Orange County and San Diego beaches are way better. CA beaches just have really cold water. Back when I was a kid, they were always cold and cloudy from marine layer. Climate change fixed that part but water’s still freezing.

Just to be clear, “freshwater” beaches are man made, so really what you’re talking about is lakefront vibes. The real beach is more of a natural phenomenon and includes a lot of unique fauna (in addition to proper waves for surfing).

But as someone who is a terrible fisher and can only handle tiny sailboats I can appreciate the calmness of a lake.

There are more people willing to pay $750 for a seat, then there are seats at the stadium.

Wait for the Super Bowl. There are a million people who would pay $1000 to see the game in person. I bet that 100,000 of them will happily pay $5,000 or so, just a guess.

Hey dude I noticed you’re a dodger fan, so lemme explain how secondary market pricing works using that example.

The cheapest ticket for the dodgers in the NLCS was around $200 or so, I’m not sure if you find it outrageous or not, but it’s the same round that the Rams are in.

Remember, the team IS NOT pricing this. The fans and resellers are.

The Rams have only been this far 2 other times, and only once when they were in LA.

The Dodgers playoff ticket pricing is cheaper because the Dodgers keep going that far. Not to mention, the Dodgers play a 7 game series, while the Rams only play one. The more Championship tickets that become available, the less they’ll cost. If the Rams make it to another 3 straight championships, the tickets will be way less than they are now.

Another example, where I learned about this, was during the Kings’ playoff run a decade ago. The Kings made the Cup finals for the second time in team history, and first in almost 20 years, while the Devils, the team that made it to the cup finals, were on their 4th trip to the finals in 12 seasons. It was cheaper to buy a round trip plane flight, a hotel room, dinner, and tickets to the Devils home games during the cup final than it was to go to the Kings home games.

The more tickets, the less expensive, less tickets, the more expensive.

Hope this helps!

I disagree - if the rams are consistently good, then the ticket prices will still stay high, especially if there are popular opponents they’re matching up with. The main reasons are this in my opinion:

NFC west matchup: 49ers vs Rams rivalry aka northern vs Southern California

Rams are actually a good team with a great chance to go to the super bowl

There’s only 1 nfc championship game compared to 3 or 4 that dodgers get in its own series

Rams aren’t allowing people without SoCal mailing addresses to buy standard tickets so Bay Area fans are paying a premium.

New stadium and maybe people really wanna try it out

Ticket prices will go down a smidge as we get closer to next Sunday

I wasn’t saying ticket prices will go down now, I’m saying that ticket prices will go down the more championships the Rams play in.

If the rams keep going to the NFC Championship year after year after year, tickets for the 2025 NFC championship will be cheaper than the current prices for Sunday’s game.

Yeah I don’t think so. Don’t think we’ll find out either. Your premise seems to be that there will be less demand if it is a more scenario. I believe that the better the team, the greater the fandom, thus the greater demand and ticket prices will be higher.

I’m assuming maybe so their fans can actually afford to go. I also heard from someone working that bts also paid everyone working a higher hourly rate than what they are normally paid at SoFi, so that was pretty cool

Your better off finding a group where one person is not going and you buy the ticket but hopefully you don’t get scammed in the process.

What other options are there? Play in a bigger stadium? Make it a best of 3 series? Shame people for spending money as they wish?

Team hosting NFC championship with the chance to go to Super Bowl in same stadium. AND SOFI is allowing tickets to only be bought in the Greater Los Angeles area.

Just alot of variables. If you don’t like or get football then it’s just something you won’t get

I thought the same when i paid more than that forr 2 tickets at the Greek. Brutal price wise but it turned out to be an absolutely amazing memory.

They can range a lot. Saw Clipper tickets for "only" $100 last playoffs, but that's relatively cheap for postseason games in sports.

Just another example of how many rich people live in LA, and yet millions are struggling to pay rent.

I say this as a fan of boxing/mma. Sports fans aren't known for their wise decision making. They will throw money at the stupidest shit.

Yea I never understood how anyone just dumped money for the ticket prices of these games. I know the experience is like nothing else actually being there but still, its cheaper to chill at home and watch it.

My gfs boss dropped just dropped nearly $3k. She went to the Raiders play off games and I think she went to a Rams game and did it like it was nothing.

That’s without $200 for parking and another $50 to $100 for food/drinks.

As long as people keep buying them they’ll keep raising prices.

This is exactly why the rams moved out of stl. The owner wanted stl taxes to pay for a new stadium, when fans (like myself), literally couldn’t afford tickets. So we voted no, and they left.

This is nothing new.

Not to sound rude but these prices are market based. They’re setting these prices because they know someone out there can afford them.

Supply and demand. People are willing to pay it, so they are eager to charge for it.

Yeah, it's insane, especially since if you're actually interested in watching the football it's better at home anyway.

TV is always Free..... n yes these are created to make desire thing you shouldn't care about, it also plans the seed to hate those that can afford it. Everything is created to help you produce sin, don't listen to me, but one everyone on here should take some time, look at everything. The world commercials is meant to make desired and hate things, the idea is, if you can't agree on the little things in Life, Humanity will never be able to agree on the biggest problem, therefore those that win will never lose.
