Sofi Stadium is the massive new football stadium built in Inglewood, California, and the home of Rams and Chargers football. The stadium can seat over 70,000 fans and will begin to welcome football games, concerts, and other events as it opens this year (2021). To allow people to see the stadium for themselves, they started offering tours, which take you through some more VIP areas and even allow you to access the field. My dad and I took a tour and really enjoyed experiencing this new stadium. Here is all the information if you want to tour the stadium as well.
- Cost: Tour tickets range from $30 to $50. We did the $30 “standard” ticket
- They offer dozens of times throughout the day.
- Location: 1001 S. Stadium Drive, Inglewood, CA 90301
Here is a video I made on our visit.
After buying tour tickets, they will send you an email with directions on how to get to the stadium and where to park. Once you pull in, you will see signs for tour parking, and the signs will guide you as you walk to the entrance. It is about a quarter-mile walk to the entrance from the parking area.
The Lake Park Trail
Be sure to get there a little early so you can visit the Lake Park Trail, which has a beautiful pond with great views of the stadium behind it.
After walking the Lake Park Trail, we checked in for the tour and were directed where to meet our guide.
The Sofi Stadium Tour
Our tour had about 25 people on it, and it moved around the stadium, allowing us to explore everything from viewpoints to suites. There were stops to watch videos at many of the spots as well. Here are some of the highlights.
The Team Store
Before or after your tour, you can browse the team store and pick up some merchandise if you are interested.
Our guide told us that some of the restaurants are named after famous streets in LA and feature food from those areas (like Olvera St).
Corona Beach House Suite
We got to go in the Corona Beach House Suite, an awesome corner of the stadium with foosball tables, lots of seating, and great views. I would love to watch a game in a suite like this sometime!
200 Level Concourse
Next, we saw some of the most sought-after seats in the stadium, those on the 50-yard line in the 200 level concourse.
Our guide said that these seats even came with food and drinks in this awesome outdoor foyer-type area.
We then saw the Google Cloud Suites and the area that manages all of the smart tech in the stadium. Our guide said that there are so many cords in the stadium that they could wrap around the Earth.
The On-Field Experience
From there, the walkthrough portion of the tour ended, and we were able to go down to the field for the second part of our tour.
This started with a run through the entrance tunnel that the players use.
Once we were on the field, we could participate in various activities like the 40-yard dash, field goal kicks, and even throw a football at targets.
It was a blast to be on the field like this, getting to participate in these activities, and it was easily the highlight for my dad and me.
The last thing we could visit was the Ram’s Locker Room. This was self-guided, and you could go in and see it if you wanted to.
I have no idea if these tours will still be offered and will still go onto the field when the season starts, but overall it was a blast and a great way to experience this new massive stadium in LA. Check it out, and let me know what you think in the comments.
