According to a report from Greg Braggs Jr., host of Braggs in the Stands and analyst for Region Sports Network, the Chicago Bears will allow fans back at training camp this year.

This will be the first time since the 2019 season that the Bears will have fans at training camp, and the first time they’ll have fans attending camp at their home practice facility at Halas Hall in Lake Forest, Illinois.

In January of 2020 the Bears announced that they were leaving their previous camp location of Olivet Nazarene University in Bourbonnais, Illinois, where they worked out from 2002 through 2019, to hold training camp at their recently renovated Halas Hall.

The plan was for a limited amount of fans to be allowed to attend 2020’s camp via free tickets through a lottery system, but the COVID-19 pandemic put an end to that.

But with the pandemic restrictions coming to an end, Chicago is starting to open back up, fans will be back at Soldier Field, and the training camp lottery appears to be back on.

Braggs reports that the full training camp schedule will be revealed by the team shortly, so be on the lookout for how to sign up for tickets once they become available.
