Parking for the Los Angeles Chargers and Los Angeles Rams
SoFi Stadium at 1001 Stadium Dr, Inglewood, California 90301, is home to 2022 SuperBowl champions, Los Angeles Rams, and the Los Angeles Chargers football teams. The NFL stadium opened up in 2020 and was the host of SuperBowl 2022 against the Cincinnati Bengals and the Los Angeles Rams. Outside of being home to the LA Rams and Chargers, the venue hosts many concerts and events all year round.
Here are the Sofi Stadium parking tips to be familiar with when driving to the venue for a football game or other event!
How Much is Parking for a Los Angeles Rams / Los Angeles Chargers Game?
The official parking lots at the venue open up four to five hours before kickoff. Prices at the official lots will vary depending on the event. The recommendation is to purchase your parking ahead of time before arriving at SoFi Stadium since these parking zones tend to fill up quickly for events.
Off-site parking tends to be cheaper than you find at the official parking lots surrounding the venue. The unofficial parking lots surrounding the stadium can range between $20 to $200. The dynamic pricing will vary depending on a preseason, regular season, or postseason game against the LA Rams. Parking spots in these off-site parking venues might be more difficult for specific concerts and events than others.
Finally, there is no street parking in the City of Inglewood. Unless you have a residence sticker showing that you are from the City of Inglewood, you will run the risk of towing or getting a parking ticket if you leave your vehicle on the street for a game.
SoFi Stadium Handicap / Accessible Parking
ADA parking is at all official SoFi Stadium parking lots. However, ADA parking comes on a first-come, first-serve basis, so it is best to arrive early before a game or concert to secure a spot. In addition, specific matches and shows will have a shuttle service that will bring fans to and from the parking lots to the venue.
If there are any ADA parking questions, you can ask the parking staff at the venue where you should go.
Is There Tailgating Before a Match?
Tailgating occurs only before every NFL game at SoFi Stadium in the Pink Zones. Parking lots open up four hours before kickoff, so fans looking to tailgate should head over to the section before the game.
Can You Bring Outside Food into SoFi Stadium?
Fans can’t bring any outside food into SoFi Stadium. However, fans can bring in an unopened bottle of water that is 16.9 ounces or less.
Check out the SoFi Stadium Bag Policy guide to see what you can and can’t bring into the venue.
Can You Smoke Inside the Facility?

Can You Take Public Transportation to the Venue?
Using the Metro C Line is a popular public transportation option if you don’t want to get stuck in traffic or struggle to find parking spaces to use before a game. You want to get off the Metro C Line stop at the Hawthorne/ Lennox station. From there, the Chargers / Rams offer a free shuttle bus that picks up and drops off fans from that location to the game. This free shuttle bus runs every ten minutes and will run a few hours before kickoff and a half-hour after a match.
Taking the bus is another way to get to and from the football stadium. The bus routes that drop you off and pick you up near the venue are 115,117 and 212.
Finally, fans taking a rideshare program to and from the game can use the dedicated rideshare area on Kareem Court. Kareem Court is about a ten-minute walk to the venue.
