Bears Announce Ticket Price Increase


You want one of those big-ticket free agents, Bears fans?  Get ready to pay for it.  On Tuesday the Chicago Bears announced a ticket increase for all non-club level seats in the range of $2 – $10 per ticket.  That moves the price of the cheapest ticket at Soldier Field to $76 dollars.     If you take the Bears’ PR spin, it’s not so bad:

"According to the Bears, it is the third time in the last four years ticket prices have remained flat in at least one area. Season-ticket holders have the option to make payments online with credit cards, a policy that was changed in the recent past. Payments made by check also will be accepted."

Well isn’t that nice.  By keeping the most expensive Club ticket prices flat in 15% of the stadium, the Bears get to say that “ticket prices have remained flat in at least one area.”   How democratic of them.
