49ers vs. Rams: Two-thirds of attendees at SoFI are expected to be Niners fans

If you're going as a Niners fan to the 49ers' Week 2 game against the Rams at SoFI Stadium, you're going to be in good company.

The Rams' home venue at SoFI Stadium continues to be a safe haven for the 49ers on a yearly basis, and this Sunday will be no different.

There is a ton of irony when the Los Angeles Rams' public address announcer at SoFI Stadium yells out, "Whose house?" when the San Francisco 49ers are in town.

We haven't exactly cared too much about some of LA's other games versus other opponents there. But, at least when the Niners are visiting, SoFI Stadium isn't the Rams' house.

No, it's unquestionably San Francisco's house. Or, as it should be called from this point forward, "Levi's South."

The 49ers visit Los Angeles for some Week 2 NFC West action. Aside from that NFC Championship game two seasons ago that no Niners fan wants to discuss, head coach Kyle Shanahan and Co. have dominated the head-to-head matchup, winning eight regular-season games in a row.

And it sure helps when whatever crowd, either at SoFI or Levi's Stadium, is overwhelmingly in support of the red and gold.

49ers expect another massive takeover of Rams' home venue, SoFI Stadium

It's almost a yearly tradition for San Francisco fans to flood into SoFI. Whether they're 49ers fans living in Southern California or ones who traveled in from elsewhere, it's impossible to ignore the sea of red in the stands at SoFI.

Things shouldn't be different in Week 2.

Jennifer Lee Chan of NBC Sports Bay Area, compiling data from vivid seats, reported that 64 percent fans who are expected to attend will be Niners fans.

That's nearly a two-to-one ratio, and two-thirds of the stadium will be rooting for San Francisco.

“I think we have the best-traveling fan base overall," defensive end Nick Bosa told NBC Sports Bay Area. "Pittsburgh was impressive and I think we’ll take over L.A."

The Rams, perhaps acknowledging the majority of fans won't be rooting for them, are opting to wear their road white jerseys, which means the 49ers will be in home reds.

For a road game... that's much more like a home game, just in Southern California.

The Niners and Rams kick off on Sunday, Sept. 17 at 4:05 p.m. ET from Levi's South... also known as SoFI Stadium.
