Seriously, the venue is very well laid out and every seat is very good for football. The field is lower than the first row of seats so you should be just fine anywhere.
Entice them to enter the game. Don't let them out. The world would be a better place.
I had no idea and I imagine most Americans don't remember this either.
They were one of the biggest drawing teams the first half of the year, I think, until the Jeff Fisher Equilibrium came into effect.
Nevermind. Looked it up.
Raiders by a lot.
The concourses are wide and open, the sight lines are great, the weather is incredible, and the atmosphere is very good.
But traffic, at least back then, could be mayhem for Galaxy games (which generally were sold out and full capacity, given the team's general success and the arrival of Beckham that summer).
There also wasn't much in terms of nearby amenities. A lot of land was/is occupied by the tennis courts, the practice fields for the Galaxy (and formerly Chivas USA - RIP), the tennis stadium, etc. Plus, Cal State Dominguez Hills is right next to the parcel of land on which all the sporting items sit.
If I were a fan of a team visiting the Chargers, I'd go in a heartbeat.
So higher is still going to be close to the action.
Also, contrary to the other poster's remarks, there is sufficient interest in the Chargers that they sold out their season tickets. If you go on Stubhub (where tix start at $87 for that game) you can see the views from the various seat levels.
The Packers' last season at the original City Stadium was 1956. That place seated only 25,000. New City Stadium, later renamed Lambeau Field, opened in 1957 and originally seated just over 32,000. Some of the AFL stadiums had smaller capacities (e.g., Frank Youell Field in Oakland, and Nickerson Field and Alumni Stadium in Boston), but I'm pretty sure no NFL stadium did.
The Chargers would be in deeper trouble than anyone thought if they couldn't sell out a 30,000-seat soccer stadium.
and still make a profit.
Don't worry. In the end, the Bolts will make out OK.
There probably will be plenty of empty seats. You might as well buy the cheapest tickets possible, then move around about halfway through the first quarter and find a seat that you like.
However, I'll bet the 12/3 games vs. the Browns will have the highest no-show number.
The 49ers play the Rams 12 miles up the 110 Freeway. Very strange scheduling. Another oddity: it will be the first time the 49ers ever have closed a regular season in LA.
Both spent in the same state and division.
A good thirty years plus, very surprised they wouldn't have the SF-LA game be a regular season ending tilt. Especially considering the relative successful of both clubs.
are in the same division as the 49ers, starting in 1950 when the 49ers and Browns moved from the old AAFC to the NFL, and excluding the St. Louis years of 1995-2015.
Much of the reason for this involves the NFL's one-time inclination to schedule December games in warmer climates as frequently as possible. For most of the 1950s and 1960s, both LA and SF finished at home against teams from colder climates (most frequently the Packers and the Colts). Both teams finished on the road more frequently in the 1970s, but not against each other (the Rams finished with an opponent from outside their division every year from 1970-1978).
The Rams finished at SF for the first time in 1984, and did so again in 1986, 1987, and 1988. It didn't happen again until 1998, by which times the Rams were in St. Louis. The 49ers closed the 2002 season at St. Louis (the final time a Week 17 game was played on Monday night), and again in 2009 and 2011. The Rams' final game as a St. Louis team was at SF in 2015.
The NFL began mandating intra-division matchups for Week 17 in 2010, which increases the chances of future season-ending Ram-49er games.
As an LA resident, are you at all interested in the Rams' return?
