According to a report from WGN News, the Chicago Bears have been talking with Chicago Mayor Lori Lightfoot about allowing some fans to come back to Soldier Field.
The city hasn’t allowed fans at sporting events since the pandemic hit earlier this year, but with other cities allowing some fans into stadiums, it now appears that Lightfoot’s administration could be softening their stance.
