The Los Angeles Rams started selling 2016 season tickets on Monday and Los Angeles Lakers legend Magic Johnson was among the first to put down a deposit. 

At last count, over 8,000, $100 deposits had been placed for tickets, according to the team. At least 5,000 of those tickets sold in the first five minutes they were available. 

The tickets are for a spot at the Los Angeles Memorial Coliseum, where the Rams will call home through at least the 2018 season. 

The Rams will begin construction soon on a $2 billion, 80,000-seat stadium in Inglewood that is scheduled to open in 2019.

Fans who put down deposits for season tickets this year will also have the first opportunity to buy personal seat licenses for Inglewood when those go on sale.
