The LA Rams and LA Chargers announced on Tuesday that indeed they are opening their doors to fans next season. In accordance with LA Public Health, the teams are comfortable with reopening at 100% when the games begin next season.

The Rams debuted the $5 billion SoFi Stadium in 2020, but no fans were able to attend any games because of the coronavirus pandemic. Now LA will once again be opening the season on Sunday Night Football, hosting the Chicago Bears in Week 1, and Rams fans will be able to fill every seat in the house.

From the team’s website:

“Stan Kroenke built SoFi Stadium for Rams fans and all of Los Angeles to enjoy. Thanks to LA County Department of Public Health, the heroic work of the medical community and first responders, and everyone doing their part, we are thrilled to announce we will welcome fans to the Rams House this fall at full capacity.”

Dr. Ghaly on Friday said capacity and physical distancing restrictions, regardless of setting, would be lifted on June 15.

In addition to full capacity, the California guidelines stated:

The state will recommend, but not require, individuals show proof of vaccination or a negative COVID-19 test.

Individuals who aren’t vaccinated or don’t display a negative test may still enter provided they wear a mask.

Vaccinated and unvaccinated people are required to wear face coverings when attending crowded outdoor events, such as a Rams game.

All concessions are allowed to resume, unrestricted.
