San Francisco 49ers Fans Being Denied Tickets at Los Angeles Rams’ SoFi Stadium For NFC Championship Game

Published 01/25/2022, 7:53 AM EST

Los Angeles Rams will take on the San Francisco 49ers in the NFL conference championship. The Green Bay Packers lost on Saturday, and it sent the 49ers to the finals. And after the Ram defeated the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, the final was set. The game will take place at the SoFi Stadium on Sunday. 

The Niners fans might have a difficult time getting into the LA stadium. Los Angeles has changed their ticket sales policies for the conference championship. They fear that the 49ers are going to turn SoFi into Levi’s Stadium.

The Rams ban the 49ers from SoFi Stadium

The last time the two NFC giants faced off against each other was in Week 18 of the regular season. It was the game that let San Francisco clinch a berth in the playoffs. The 49ers defeated the Rams with a score of 27-24. This game also took place in the SoFi Stadium. The Niners fans made a strong showing that night. 

Maybe Los Angeles is still salty about that loss. Because in their next meeting, they have straight-up banned anybody from San Francisco. No SoFi tickets for the 49ers fans. In fact, anybody living outside Los Angeles cannot purchase a ticket to the NFL conference finals. Anyone who attempts to buy the tickets gets greeted with a message.

It says“Public sales to the game at SoFi Stadium in Inglewood, CA will be restricted to residents of the Greater Los Angeles region. Residency will be based on credit card billing address at checkout. Orders by residents outside of the Greater Los Angeles region will be canceled without notice and given refunds.” Now that’s some way of practicing social distancing.

After the Rams won and the finals were set, the wife of left tackle Andrew Whitworth had an idea. Melissa Whitworth made an offer to the Rams fans for their tickets. She would rather buy tickets off the Rams fans from the secondary market that let the 49ers fans get some. Melissa tweeted, “If you [Rams] fans want to sell your tickets”, she adds. “I’ll buy them. Just DO NOT sell them to the other team PLEASE!”
