The Los Angeles Chargers NFL American football franchise has announced its season-ticket prices for the 2017 season, which it will spend at the 30,000-capacity StubHub Center.
The Chargers officially confirmed a move to LA from San Diego last month and the team will play at StubHub Center, home of Major League Soccer franchise LA Galaxy, while a new 70,000-seat stadium is built in Inglewood. The Chargers will eventually share that stadium with fellow NFL franchise the LA Rams.
The Chargers’ cheapest season tickets for the 2017 season are $700 (£563/€663), with the most expensive to set fans back $3,750. The prices are considerably higher than those offered by the Rams at the Los Angeles Memorial Coliseum last season, with the team’s packages ranging from $360 to $2,025.
The price difference can be put down to the fact that the Coliseum has a capacity of 90,000 – three times that of StubHub Center – and demand for Chargers tickets is likely to far outstrip supply.
The Chargers’ president of business operations, A.G. Spanos, said: “Playing at StubHub Center is going to offer fans a rare opportunity to see NFL action in a uniquely intimate setting. Every seat at StubHub Center will feel close to the action and fans will be right there with us on every play. Not many venues can make this claim and we expect to sell out quickly.
“Our game-day experience is going to be awesome. We have one of the most exciting offenses in the NFL and a new head coach who is already injecting new energy into our entire organisation.
“StubHub Center is centrally located, easy to access, and features 10,000 on-site parking spaces. We promise nothing but fun and entertainment for fans and families alike.”
