The Chicago Bears have informed season ticket holders, in a letter from team president Ted Phillips, that they will be raising ticket prices for the 2020 season.
But don’t worry Bears’ fans, Phillips acknowledged last year’s disappointment.
“Unfortunately, our performance on the field failed to meet everyone’s expectations,” Phillips said in his letter via 670 The Score. “No one was satisfied, and it is now imperative for us to thoroughly analyze what went wrong and make necessary corrections for 2020. Our goal is to bring a world championship back to Chicago.”
Individual ticket prices will increase from 1.6% to 5.3%, with non-club seats having an average increase of 4.3%, and club seats getting an average increase of 3.3%, for an overall average increase of 3.9% across the board.
With the Los Angeles Chargers moving into a new stadium this year, the Bears now play in the smallest venue in the NFL.
This wouldn't be necessary if the #Bears, Park District and City of Chicago got their sh*t together and built a real stadium.— Ross Read (@RossRead) January 24, 2020
It's long overdue. There are two quality spots not far from Soldier Field where you can pull this off. pic.twitter.com/WAjccSvj54
The Bears went 4-4 at home last year and in 2020 they’ll host the following teams at Soldier Field; the Detroit Lions, Green Bay Packers, Minnesota Vikings, Houston Texans, Indianapolis Colts, New Orleans Saints, New York Giants, and the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. Specific dates and times will be announced in April.
