VIDEO: 49er Faithful look to diminish Rams home field advantage this Sunday
Fans who had previously been attempting to buy tickets received a notice that "Public sales to the game at SoFi Stadium in Inglewood, CA will be restricted to residents of the Greater Los Angeles region," and, "Residency will be based on credit card billing address at checkout."
It appears the Rams are already afraid that the 49ers will again make SoFi Stadium their home — they're trying to restrict ticket sales for a potential NFC title game by geography.— David Lombardi (@LombardiHimself) January 23, 2022
IMO pathetic and also premature — LA isn't even in the title game yet pic.twitter.com/G8VmbG9muv
A source from the Rams said the tickets are sold out so that is why that policy is no longer in effect. The person also said the Rams have no control over how tickets are sold on the secondary market.
The 49ers and Rams last met in Week 18 with the Faithful turning SoFi Stadium into a sea of red.

Rams coach Sean McVay said the Rams were surprised by the volume of Niners fans at that game.
"It did catch us off guard," McVay said. "There was a lot of red there. That was definitely a surprise."

Rams quarterback Matt Stafford even had to go to a silent count, which is usually done by a road team to continue calling plays in a loud stadium.
Tickets on the primary market are sold out but there are lots of tickets available on the secondary market. Ticket prices are ranging from $500 in the upper sections to over $5,000 at midfield.
The Rams held off Tom Brady and the Bucs to win yesterday, and on Saturday, Robbie Gould and the 49ers won on a walk-off field goal.
