NFL In Los Angeles: 100,000 Fans Want Tickets

INDUSTRY, Calif. -- NFL-starved fans in Los Angeles are already signing up for ticket updates, even though there's no stadium or a team to play in it.

John Semcken of Majestic Realty Co. said Monday that the stadium Web site has received more than 105,000 requests about general admission tickets, 36,000 about club seats and 3,200 about luxury suites. About 75,000 seats are planned.

Majestic began gauging demand and seeking support about a year ago. Semcken says demand spiked after Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger signed a bill last month clearing the way for construction in the Los Angeles suburb of Industry.

Semcken says tickets won't be sold until Majestic convinces a team to relocate to the area.

Los Angeles hasn't had an NFL team since the Rams and Raiders left in 1994.
