When the 49ers beat Los Angeles at SoFi Stadium on January 9, 2022 the Rams House was packed with 49er fans in Red and Gold attire.
49er fans were such a presence at the Niners victory which propelled them into the playoffs that LA Rams management is now retaliating.
If the Rams can’t beat the Niners on the field (San Francisco has won six straight) LA ownership wants to ensure their team doesn’t lose in the stands, too.

You’ve heard about not counting your chickens before they hatch?
The Los Angeles Rams were banning ticket sales to 49ers fans before the Rams even knew if there’d be an NFC Championship Game next Sunday between the two teams.
An influx of 49er Faithful swarmed SoFi Stadium when the two teams faced off on Jan. 9, a game in which San Francisco scored a 27-24 upset and squeezed into the playoffs. Rams coach Sean McVay later told reporters that the team was surprised by just how many Niners fans had filled the stands.
Sunday morning, as the Rams prepared to play the Tampa Bay Buccaneers in what turned out to be a 30-27 victory for Los Angeles, fans looking to snag tickets to a possible 49ers-Rams title game at SoFi Stadium on Jan. 30 were hit with a notification that warned ticket sales “will be restricted to residents of the Greater Los Angeles region.”
Now, the two teams will meet for a third time this season. This time, the victor will get to represent the NFC in the Super Bowl.
