The NFL preseason game that’s scheduled for Aloha Stadium in Honolulu, Hawaii, will be played between none other than the Los Angeles Rams and the Dallas Cowboys. The announcement was made on Thursday, March 21, 2019, by the Rams, with a kick off set for 4 p.m. Hawaii-Aleutian Time (HAT) this August 17.

Tickets for the preseason football game start at $30, and local as well as out-of-state fans are anticipated for the match. Kevin Demoff, Rams President and COO, told “The passion that this market has for the NFL, it just seemed like the right time to bring a game back with the Pro Bowl (gone) for a couple of years. We really think the Rams can step up and fill that void.” Demoff added, “I do think there are possibilities as we move forward for us at the beginning of a relationship not just for preseason games but the potential for training camps, for off-season programs, for mini camps, for high schools clinics. Whether we play a game here or not.”

According to the L.A. Times, for this preseason game (the first to be played at Aloha Stadium since 1976), the Rams will be the home team. The team has been working in partnership with the Hawaiian Tourism Authority in a project designed to draw more visitors to the islands. Texas fans should definitely be keen, considering this match-up comes fast on the heels of the Rams elimination of the Cowboys in this past season’s NFC Divisional Round. Not only that but with Southwest recently adding reasonable flight fares for Hawaii to its roster, getting there should be even easier.

Both Demoff and Hawaii Lodging and Tourism Association President and CEO Mufi Hannemann have applauded the arrangement. “While there are games in London and New Mexico, and the league is looking to expand internationally, I don’t see any reason why this couldn’t be a place that someone looked long-term to play regular season,” Demoff explained to Hannemann said, “We are a football-crazy state. We love football.” Well, then fans should get ready to hear a lot of “How ‘bout them Cowboys!” Those looking for more details on the upcoming game can visit the ticket link available here.
