Before they defeated the Super Bowl champion Buccaneers 30-27 Sunday, the Rams were already making plans to keep 49ers fans out of SoFi Stadium in Los Angeles.
On Ticketmaster, ticket sales were limited to only those with billing addresses in the Greater Los Angeles Area.
The Athletic’s 49ers reporter David Lombardi tweeted on Sunday morning a photo from the app saying:
“Public sales to the game at SoFi Stadium in Inglewood, CA will be restricted to residents of the Greater Los Angeles region. Residency will be based on credit card billing address at checkout. Orders by residents outside of the Greater Los Angeles region will be canceled without notice and refunds given.”Ticketmaster
As of Sunday afternoon, that inquiry was not found when trying to purchase tickets on the Ticketmaster app or website.
KRON4 reached out to Ticketmaster for a comment but has not heard back.
