The Los Angeles Chargers will be playing their home games in the 27,000-seat StubHub Center until the new stadium in Inglewood is completed. The StubHub Center is home to the LA Galaxy of MLS and by far the smallest NFL stadium.
Well, the team is finding ways to make up the difference.
Ahead of Sunday’s Los Angeles opener against the Dolphins, photos emerged of general parking signs around StubHub Center. Let’s just say it wasn’t the most fan friendly pricing.
The Chargers are charging $100 for fans to park in the general tailgating lot. For a franchise that needs to establish a fanbase in an already-fickle sports market, that wasn’t the most endearing strategy.
And that was just to park. The cheapest tickets on Ticketmaster ahead of Sunday’s game were around $90 per ticket.
The Rams had their own issues getting fans to attend their home opener last week. With those prices, the Chargers could have the same problem.
