The Los Angeles Rams will play their final game at the Los Angeles Memorial Coliseum Sunday before moving to SoFi Stadium in 2020, which is under construction at the former site of the Hollywood Park racetrack in Inglewood.
Ram players will wear a patch on their uniform featuring the outline of the Coliseum’s peristyle arch and torch in the Rams’ colors of blue, yellow and white. Limited edition merchandise featuring the patch will be available at the team store.
The field design is inspired by the 1951 NFL championship game, in which the Rams defeated the Cleveland Browns, 24-17, for their only championship in Los Angeles.
A halftime ceremony will showcase the top five moments at the Coliseum since the Rams returned in 2016. Season ticket purchasers, former Rams and construction workers building SoFi Stadium will unfurl two special banners on the field.
Fans will be invited to take the field following the game to watch a season-in-review video followed by a fireworks show. Space is limited and access will be first-come, first-served.
The Rams began playing at the Coliseum in 1946, moving from Cleveland, where they won the 1945 NFL championship. They remained at the Coliseum through 1979 before moving to the then-Anaheim Stadium.
The Rams moved to St. Louis in 1995, then returned to the Coliseum in 2016. The game against the Arizona Cardinals will be the Rams’ 38th at the Coliseum since their return and conclude their 38th season at the stadium.
A “Block Party” and “Moving Sale” will be held from 8:30 a.m.-12:30 p.m. during the fan fest on Christmas Tree Lane. It will include a discussion with Pro Football Hall of Fame running back Eric Dickerson and Vince Ferragamo, who quarterbacked the Rams to Super Bowl XIV in 1980.
There will also be performances by the Rams Cheerleaders and Mariachi Rams and opportunities to meet former Rams.
The “Moving Sale,” will include the opportunity to purchase $20 pre-packaged grab bags with Rams-branded Nike gear and paneled footballs; $40 grab bags with Rams-branded Nike gear, a mini helmet and paneled football; player-worn memorabilia for $20 each, autographed footballs and mini-helmets signed by former Rams for $20 each and full-sized Rams helmets for $40 each.
All proceeds from the moving sale will benefit the team’s community outreach programs through the Rams Foundation.
To ensure efficient entry, fans are encouraged to enter the Coliseum at 12:25 p.m., 60 minutes before the opening kickoff.
