Major League Soccer franchise Los Angeles FC has sold out of its bumper 2020 season ticket inventory of 18,300 passes.
During its first two seasons in the league, the club capped season ticket sales at 17,500, which were all bought ahead of each season. This year the club added 800 more season packages, which have now sold out with less than a week before its season opener.
LAFC has also launched a season-ticket waiting list for its 2020 season, which kicks off against David Beckham’s expansion team, Inter Miami, on Sunday.
The club welcomed an average of 22,251 fans to each game at the 22,000-capacity Banc of California Stadium during the 2019 season. LAFC has sold out of all 37 home games it has played since its entry into the MLS in 2018.
This trend has continued despite its average ticket price last season of $49.64, which was 13 per cent more expensive than any other team in the league.
Tickets for the first game of the season have been attracting more interest on the secondary market than any other MLS opener, according to SeatGeek. The average resale price Tuesday morning was $149, which is more than 23 per cent higher than the secondary-market price for any regular-season game at Banc of California.
Ahead of the 2019 season, LAFC partnered with Ticketmaster, shifting its primary ticketing away from SeatGeek. The New York-based ticketing firm served as both the primary and secondary ticketing marketplace partner for LAFC in its inaugural season.
