The Rams selling 70,000 season tickets within six hours for their new home in 80,000-seat Los Angeles Coliseum probably indicates how quickly the limited number of single-game ticket will sell out, reported the Los Angeles Times.

The Rams sold out the entire season tickets allocation to 24,000 people who could snap up a limit of eight tickets each, said the Rams' website.

"To sell out of season tickets in the first six hours upon our return to Los Angeles is both humbling and a reminder of how excited Angelinos are about the return of the Rams and the NFL," Kevin Demoff, the Rams chief operating officer, told the Times.

"As both Los Angeles' first pro sports team and its newest sports team, the bond between this team and the community is evident and strengthening each day." 

The Los Angeles Daily News noted the season ticket purchasers will get priority when the Rams new $2.6-billion stadium is built in Inglewood for the 2019 season.

"At the outset, we were committed to providing the opportunity for all of our initial deposit owners to purchase a ticket to a Rams game, working to ensure the tickets ended up in the hands of Rams fans, and creating the best home-field advantage in the NFL this fall," said Jake Bye, the Rams vice president who is running team's ticket sales.

The Rams ranked last in attendance of the 32 NFL teams in 2015, drawing 52,402, roughly 80 percent of capacity, in eight games at the Edward Jones Dome in St. Louis, according to ESPN.

The Rams played in the Los Angeles Coliseum from 1946 to 1979 before moving to Anaheim Stadium from 1980 to 1994, according to SportsTeamsHistory.com. The team moved to St. Louis 1995 to play in what was then known as the Trans World Dome.
