ST. LOUIS, MO (KTVI)- A new lawsuit filed against the Rams alleges the team is breaking its agreement with season ticket holders. With the move to Los Angeles underway, fans say they're entitled to attend games no matter where the Rams call home.

These true football fans say they spent good money for their personal seat licenses. And that despite the team's leaving the Dome in St. Louis, their contracts entitle them to either purchase tickets there or transfer their PSLs, as they're sometimes called.

The lawsuit was filed in St. Louis County and argues the agreement for the licenses is valid for at least another decade.

Plaintiffs say their contract even specifies that if the Rams don't play at the Dome, the team will make its best efforts to give license holders priority tickets at the new stadium and that the Rams have not followed through.

After the NFL approve the team's move, the Rams shut down the PSL website and posted that "transfers can no longer be processed."

According to our partners at the St. Louis Post-Dispath, the agreement does say the Rams have the right to terminate that agreement and refund any deposit paid. They also say Rams executives declined to comment on the lawsuit, which is seeking CLASS-ACTION STATUS for the 50,000 fans with season tickets.

It's the second lawsuit filed against the Rams since the move was announced.

This comes as the Rams say they've collected over 45,000 season ticket deposits for games in Los Angeles, in just two days.

The Rams plan to continue the deposit campaign through Feb. 8. ​
