The Los Angeles Rams announced on Thursday that they will be hosting the Dallas Cowboys for a preseason game at Aloha Stadium in Honolulu, Hawaii on Saturday, Aug. 17, 2019. Tickets are now available on TheRams.com/Hawaii and can be purchased on-site at Aloha Stadium.
The preseason matchup will be the first time the NFL has played an exhibition game at Aloha Stadium on O‘ahu since 1976, although a number of Pro Bowls have been played there.
In addition to the game, the Rams announced that they will be doing a number of things for the Honolulu community while they are there:
Through the support and partnership of Hawai‘i’s tourism industry, the Rams will provide various community engagement opportunities for youth in the islands. In advance of the preseason matchup, Rams players and staff will host an 11-on-11 Tournament & Skills Competition that will feature 16 Hawai‘i high school football teams. The event will include a character education session and will aim to build camaraderie and promote the game of football in Hawai‘i. During the week leading up to the game in August, Rams cheerleaders and mascot, Rampage, will visit local schools to host PLAY 60 events and create lifelong memories while encouraging youth to be active for the recommended 60 minutes every day.
In addition, as part of the Rams’ year-round military appreciation efforts, the team will bring its PLAY 60 Military Base Tour to the islands to support the military community and to honor, empower, and connect with Hawai‘i-based service members, veterans and their families.
The game itself will be a rematch of last year’s NFC Divisional Round when the Rams defeated the Cowboys, 30-22, at the Coliseum.
Both teams are returning the core nucleus of their roster’s from a year ago, so are expected to figure into the postseason picture again in 2019.
