Chicago media received an annual email about single-game tickets going on sale this Friday, but the range of prices seemed skewed compared to the past, with no explanation. Last year, the cheapest ticket for both season-ticket holders and single-game purchasers was $74 for 400-level seats. This season, that price jumped to $101 for single games, as compared to $76 for season-ticket holders.
According to a chart on the Bears’ website, every single-game ticket will be $25 more expensive than a season ticket, from the “cheap” seats in the 400 level to the pricey club seats, which go up to $410 for single-game purchases. Season tickets have been increased between $2 and $10 for non-premium seats.
Last season, the Bears’ average non-premium ticket price was listed at $101.55, fifth highest in football, according to the Team Marketing Report, which produces the annual Fan Cost Index survey (fancostexperience.com) before the beginning of each season. The NFL average was $77.36.
