RAMS' SELLOUT AGAINST RAIDERS WILL EASE CLUBS LOSSES
Published November 9, 1994
According to the Rams club attendance and ticket-price figures, this weekend's sellout against the Raiders will ease their projected 1994 losses by at least $340,000. After five home games this season, the Rams are running about $940,000 behind last year in ticket revenues. The ticket revenue figures are significant because the Rams must show they are unable to turn a profit in Anaheim in order to gain support for their proposed relocation. The Rams have sold nearly 69,000 tickets to the Raiders game, which would be the team's biggest crowd since moving to Anaheim in 1980 (Michele Himmelberg, ORANGE COUNTY REGISTER, 11/9).
