Bears Announce Ticket Price Increases and an End to Paper Tickets

Chicago Bears

After freezing ticket prices in three of the last four years, the cost of attending Bears game is going up.

The team announced ticket changes that will impact season-ticket holders and will be implemented starting in the 2019 season. Most tickets will receive an increase between 1-4 percent, with non-club seats seeing an average ticket price hike of 5.6 percent and club seats moving up by 1.6 percent.

As for the actual tickets, there is news on that front, too. The Bears are eliminating paper tickets and are moving to mobile-only ticket entry for games at Soldier Field. Teams save a fair amount of cash in printing costs when they move away from paper tickets and adopt mobile entry. But it also cuts down on fraudulent tickets and replicas that screw fans out of entry to see their favorite team play ball. The team cites the intention to make this move cuts down on ticket fraud, so at least they have that going for them with this decision.

From an individual basis, each regular season game will have its own pricing tier and a tier for preseason games have been added. Those prices will be announced once the 2019 schedule is released and you’ll want to keep your eyes peeled for that announcement. In addition to games against divisional rivals like the Lions, Vikings, and Packers, the Bears are set to play home games against the Saints, Chargers, Chiefs, Giants, and Cowboys. That is a group of premier opponents featuring start talent such as Drew Brees, Philip Rivers, Patrick Mahomes, Saquon Barkley, and Ezekiel Elliott. With that in mind, you can figure those games will cost a pretty penny once tickets become available.
