The Los Angeles Chargers will soon be playing in front of sold out crowds for their home games at the StubHub Center in Carson, California. The new home of the franchise until they join the Rams inside the City of Champions Stadium located in Inglewood, the StubHub Center presents a unique opportunity for fans of the team.

In the smaller 27,000-seat venue fans will be closer to the game providing a more intimate atmosphere than that experienced at most football stadiums. By comparison, 112 NCAA Division I football stadiums hold more people than will be in attendance for the Chargers. However, the team has officially sold out of all season tickets and is seeking alternative plans to ensure access to otherĀ fans.

Obviously filling approximately 40,000 less seats than their former home at Qualcomm Stadium should be easier, but the franchise is also drawing from a much bigger pool of candidates. The population of San Diego county is approximately 3.2 million people whereas Los Angeles county is home to over 10 million people.

Essentially, the franchise decreased their supply by 61-percent while increasing possible vendors by 218-percent. Filling less than half their former home with almost three times as many individuals to draw from devalues the sell out achievement. In fact, an inability to sell out the smaller stadium would have been a much greaterĀ cause for concern.

The excitement for Los Angeles shouldn’t be discredited because the Chargers are now in a city attempting to support two teams. Vying for a majority of that groups support begins by producing a quality product and the Chargers are in a prime position to do just that. By producing winning football in a new setting inside a huge market the Chargers can supplant the Rams as Los Angeles’ team despite a year disadvantage.
