Steelers Nation Again Predicted to Take Over Road Venue at Rams

You can expect another pro-Pittsburgh Steelers road crowd when the Black and Gold are away from home again versus the Los Angeles Rams in Week 7.

After Steelers fans took over opposing venues against the Las Vegas Raiders and Houston Texans earlier this season, ticket reseller Vivid Seats is expecting them to do it again at SoFi Stadium in Los Angeles.

Vivid Seats’ Fan Forecast projects that 54% of the crowd at the venue will be supporting the Steelers.

The extra demand from Steelers nation on top of already high L.A. prices has the game as one of the most expensive tickets in the NFL this week. The average price of a ticket sold at Vivid Seats has been $297, the fifth-highest of any Week 7 game.

The Rams have had the longest history of playing in L.A. of any NFL team, making their home in Hollywood from 1946 to 1994 and then moving back to La-La Land in 2016.

Their co-tenants at SoFi Stadium have notoriously had a hard time establishing an L.A. fanbase since moving up the coast from San Diego, leading many to question the veracity of the fanhood of Merianne Do, a Chargers fan whose intense reactions to the Chargers’ Week 6 game at SoFi Stadium were captured by ESPN and immediately went viral.

The Rams, however, have a much more established fanbase in their home city, and taking over the venue with the Mob Squad in attendance will be a much more difficult assignment for Steelers Nation.

This is the first game between the teams at SoFi Stadium since the Rams moved back to L.A. The Steelers have never won a Rams home game in the city, going 0-9 from 1947 to 1993, but the Steelers did beat the Rams in Super Bowl XIV which was played at the Rose Bowl in Pasadena, California. The Steelers were 2-0 against the Rams while they played in St. Louis.
