Tickets for Monday’s clash between the Chiefs and Rams go on sale to the public Wednesday, with thousands allotted for California residents dealing with the recent hardships that rocked the state.
The Rams on Tuesday announced they will provide free tickets to first responders battling the wildfires in addition to those affected by the fires and last week’s mass shooting in Thousand Oaks, Calif.
Per the team’s website:
“The Rams will be providing thousands of complimentary tickets to first responders who are bravely protecting the greater Los Angeles community, as well as people who have been impacted by our community’s recent tragedies.”
The NFL announced the Week 11 matchup has been moved to Los Angeles in the wake concerns regarding the state of the playing surface at Estadio Azteca in Mexico City. It had been reported that a Shakira concert at the venue Oct. 11 “left the grass surface in significant disrepair” and several unidentified players threatened to skip the meeting if the issue wasn’t addressed.
The Rams will host the Chiefs at L.A. Memorial Coliseum at 8:20 p.m. ET Monday.
