The LA Rams’ brass has thought about the 2020 NFL season often in the past few years in anticipation of the opening of the beautiful SoFi Stadium, which cements their return to Los Angeles.
There is no way anything like the coronavirus pandemic crossed their minds, though. But 2020 is a different for all of us and the Rams realize they must adjust how the first season in SoFi will be played out. According to The Athletic, the team sent a letter to season ticket holders informing them of changes and options.
The Rams have continued to keep season ticketholders informed of changes for 2020 season, including today's ruling of lower seat closures. They are also offering a refund for season tickets, or opting to carry over any existing payments to 2021 should fans not want to— Jourdan Rodrigue (@JourdanRodrigue) June 26, 2020
The Rams let fans know about the NFL’s decision to tarp off lower sections. While explaining different capacity options, the team informed fans they can get a refund for season tickets.
Fans can also decide to opt out of this season, but still maintain their status as season ticket holders, which some other teams have offered as well.
While the NFL is determined to play this season, the status of fans is still very much unclear. Kudos to the Rams for being realistic and for having open flexible conversations with their fan base.
