You'd think the Beatles were going to have a reunion at Loyola High the way tickets sold out on Friday for the first home football game in 65 years.

"Right now, they're all gone," Loyola Athletic Director Chris O'Donnell said.

It took 54 minutes to sell the number of tickets allotted for the general public, O'Donnell said. More than 4,000 seats are available for the Sept. 12 game against San Diego St. Augustine, but Loyola is keeping aside tickets for parents, students and the visiting team.

O'Donnell said there will be no tickets sold on game day at the gate.

Also selling briskly on Friday were parking passes for $15. Some 1,000 parking spots will be available.

The school is bringing in portable bleachers and lights for the game. Loyola usually plays its home games off campus at L.A. Valley College. This game is called an "experiment" to see if Loyola should be holding football games on campus.
