L.A. Rams victory parade live online: watch Stafford and McVay celebrate Super Bowl triumph
Follow the L.A. Rams victory parade and rally live as they celebrate with their fans their historic win over the Cincinnati Bengals in Super Bowl LVI.
The Los Angeles Rams are the 2022 Super Bowl champions, and their fans are waiting in standby to celebrate their team’s victory parade and rally near Exposition park.
The parade kicks off at 11 a.m. PT/ 2 p.m. ET at the Shrine Auditorium, and then heads about a mile down Figueroa Street to the L.A. Coliseum.
L.A. is not only honoring the Super Bowl champions by this parade, but they are also bringing them back to their first L.A. home in 1946, and where they played from 2016-2019, when the SoFi Stadium was being built.
The Coliseum hosted a Super Bowl more than 40 years ago, in 1973, and was also home to the very first Super Bowl in 1967. So the memories going down that road will feel particularly exceptional for the winning team.
Most streets in the area will be closed to vehicle traffic from around 7 a.m. to 2 p.m. Here are the detailed street closures:
-- Figueroa Street between Adams Boulevard and Martin Luther King Jr. Boulevard:
-- Jefferson Boulevard between Vermont Avenue and Grand Avenue; and -- Exposition Blvd between Vermont Avenue and Flower Street.
These freeway off-ramp closures will also be in effect:
-- 110 south off-ramp at Exposition Boulevard; and -- 110 Express Lane on- and off-ramps at 39th Street.
Rally is free and open to public
The event, which features Rams players, coaches, floats and specialty vehicles, will have room for about 20,000 fans. After the victory parade at 11 a.m. PT/ 2 p.m. ET, a rally will be held at the Coliseum's peristyle plaza from around noon to 12:30 p.m. local time.
With excitement comes responsibility too. All fans at the Rams’ parade will have to show either proof of vaccination against covid, a negative antigen test taken within 24 hours, or a negative PCR test taken within 48 hours. No masks are required though after officials lifted the outdoor mask mandate.
Some fans got up at 5 am to make it to the parade today, and it means the world to them to be able to walk side-by-side, all celebrating the same cause, their team’s victory, and their return to the Super Bowl title.
Meaningful Rams parade to L.A. fans
The generational cross is real on Wednesday, and to many of the L.A. natives, L.A. is the city of champions. The Rams’ win brings a lot of love and joy to the people of the city, because, as some of them say, their team’s victory and hard work to bring them where they’re at now represents the people’s hard work too, because to them, “everybody works hard in L.A.”
Whose house is it? RAMS
Everybody who’s been walking by has just been full of pride and impatient yearning for the Rams team to get out...
Stafford to Kupp touchdown handed Rams the title
With the Bengals having taken a surprise lead with a devastating pass to Higgins right at the start of the second half in Super Bowl LVI on Sunday, the Rams finally got their noses back in front with just a couple of minutes left to play, when at the end of a long, long drive, with the Rams camped on the Bengals' goal-line, Stafford finally found, who else, Cooper Kupp in the corner, to give them a 23-20 lead, which would turn out to be the final, winning score. Now it's time to get out there and celebrate the win in style!
