Single Game Chicago Bears Tickets Go on Sale Next Week


Single game Chicago Bears tickets for the 2016 season go on sale Wednesday May 25th at 11AM.

Single game Chicago Bears tickets go on sale next week and the Bears are set to debut variable pricing.  Tickets go on sale starting at 11AM on Wednesday May 25th through Ticketmaster.  Not surprisingly, their December 18th Week 15 game against the division rival Green Bay Packers is the most expensive ticket.  The cheapest seat will set you back $240 for nose bleeds while primo location seats in section 209 will cost you $596 apiece.  Yikes!  That’s a lot of cheddar!

The good news is that ticket prices for season tickets will not go up for the second straight season.  To the season ticket holders, prices will remain flat because the preseason ticket prices drop significantly and other games are variably priced.

You can get in to see the John Fox, Denver Broncos reunion or Andy Reid’s trip to Soldier Field for as little as $45 each.  The cheapest regular season games are the Week 13 matchup with the San Francisco 49ers and the Week 16 Christmas Eve tilt with the Washington Redskins, which will range from $140 – $496.  Such a bargain!!!

I like the idea of variable pricing because not all games are created equally.  Games in the early season, when the weather is likely to be better and against premium opponents are worth more than meaningless preseason games or late season games against less desirable opponents.

The secondary market, including ticket brokers and sites like StubHub already use this approach because of simple supply and demand.  The Chicago Bears have the second smallest seating capacity in the league with a shade over 61,000 seats, so it’s no wonder tickets are so pricey.

Last season, the Bears ranked 3rd in the league with an average price of $352.52 for each home game on the secondary market, so the $300+ average ticket price for the Packers games in a relative bargain compared to the secondary market.
