LA Rams receive over 45,000 ticket deposits in two days

Rams fans sign a banner in support of their team at the historic Los Angeles Memorial Coliseum. Saturday, Jan. 9, 2016 in Los Angeles. Boisterous Los Angeles Rams fans gathered Saturday to herald the NFL football team's possibly imminent return to Southern California after a 21-year sojourn in St. Louis.  

LOS ANGELES (AP) — The Rams say they have collected over 45,000 season ticket deposits in just two days for their upcoming return season in Los Angeles.

The Rams announced the results of their initial season ticket push Wednesday night.

The refundable deposits entitle fans to a spot in a virtual waiting line to purchase up to eight season tickets apiece for the NFL club’s first season back at the Coliseum after 21 years in St. Louis.

The deposits also entitle fans to a spot on the waiting list for season tickets at the palatial Inglewood stadium currently being built by Rams owner Stan Kroenke. The stadium will open in 2019.

The Rams plan to continue the deposit campaign through Feb. 8.

The nation’s second-largest market has been without an NFL team since 1994.
