    The Rams on Thursday will begin reaching out to fans who placed deposits on season tickets for the team's upcoming games at Los Angeles Memorial Coliseum.

    More than 56,000 people placed $100 deposits for season tickets earlier this year. According to the team, those fans will be grouped into "tiered phases" based on the order in which they placed their deposit. The team will then contact those fans, who will have the chance to select their seat locations using an online portal that includes a 360-degree seat viewer to check out different views of the stadium.

    Season tickets will range in price from $360 to $2,025. The team will play nine home games at the Coliseum this season.

    A limited number of single-game tickets will go on sale this summer.

    "We are excited to begin the process of building our season ticket fan base and creating the best home field advantage in the National Football League," Rams Vice President Jake Bye said. "Our goal is to reciprocate the passion demonstrated by our fans through a one-of-a-kind gameday experience as we kick off our first season back in Los Angeles."

    Team officials said earlier that people who made deposits but aren't able to purchase tickets due to high demand will still be placed on a priority wait list for tickets at the planned Inglewood stadium, which is set to open in 2019. They will also receive exclusive access to 2016 Rams single-game tickets and playoff tickets ahead of the general public.

    The Rams accepted more than 56,000 season ticket deposits during a four-week campaign propelled by the announcement a month earlier that the team will be returning to Southern California after two decades in St. Louis. The team reported more than 5,000 deposits in the first five minutes that the site was live Jan. 18.

    The Rams will play in the Los Angeles Memorial Coliseum before moving into a new stadium in Inglewood at the start of the 2019 season. The move was announced in January month after an owners meeting in Houston.

    The team finished 7-9 under coach Jeff Fisher, third in the NFC West and had a troubled attendance history in St. Louis, where a team that once produced the Super Bowl winning "Greatest Show on Turf" later struggled through a series of losing seasons. The team was consistently at the bottom of the NFL in attendance over the past decade.

    The franchise played in Southern California for 49 seasons before owner Georgia Frontiere moved the Rams after the 1994 campaign.
