The COVID-19 pandemic drastically affected many of us for well over a year, but things are slowly starting to return to normal, and in the city of Chicago that means 61,500 screaming Chicago Bears’ fans at Soldier Field cheering on our favorite team.

Earlier today Bears President and CEO Ted Phillips announced in a letter to season ticket holders that Soldier Field will be at full capacity for the 2021 season.

There were reports about stadiums being back to normal last month, but nothing official from the Bears until today. So if you’re looking for tickets to the games, we’ve partnered up with StubHub for all your ticket needs.

Also officially announced today is plans to have a limited number of fans in attendance at Halas Hall for training camp. Before 2020’s camp was cancelled the protocol was a lottery-type system for fans to get free tickets on the team’s website. Once the Bears reveal their 2021 plan we’ll be sure to pass it along here at WCG.

Also the Meijer Family Fest practice is scheduled at Soldier Field on Tuesday, August 3.

“Your patience and loyalty over the past 15 months is appreciated,” Phillips wrote in his letter. “We are thankful and humbled by the unwavering passion you have shared with us. Once again, it’s time to enjoy Bears football in-person!”
