LA Rams begin taking ticket deposits, report heavy interest
LOS ANGELES (AP) The Rams have begun taking deposits for season tickets to their first season back in Los Angeles.
The team reported heavy traffic Monday on a website set up to take $100 refundable deposits for the chance to buy tickets when they become available.
The Rams say their first deposit came from Lakers great and Dodgers co-owner Magic Johnson.
The Rams will play next season downtown at the Coliseum. Season ticket holders at the Coliseum will have priority for season tickets at the lavish new stadium under construction in Inglewood, slated to open in 2019.
The franchise gained approval to return to Los Angeles last week after 21 years in St. Louis.
The Rams are expected to play just seven regular-season home games next season, with an eighth shifted to London.
