Bears announce 2014 ticket prices
By Michael C. Wright
The Chicago Bears announced ticket prices for the 2014 season, with increases ranging from $2 to $12 for an overall average increase of 4.1 percent.
According to the team, 50 percent of the seating bowl saw a $2 increase. Non-club season-ticket prices now range from $81 to $175, with those seats -- in which 58 percent will increase $2 -- accounting for about 85 percent of the capacity at Soldier Field. The average ticket increase for non-club seats, according to the team, is 4.6 percent.
United Club season tickets will range from $275 to $550, accounting for an average ticket price increase of 3.2 percent.
The Bears have raised ticket prices 11 of the last 12 years, only holding the line in 2009.
Unless Dallas, either New York team or New England drops prices considerably, the Bears will still likely have the fifth-most-expensive non-club ticket in the NFL next season. The average NFL ticket last season was $81.54, according to the Fan Cost Index.
Season-ticket holders will continue to receive a $25 per game savings for each regular-season ticket, compared to the individual game price.
Full payment for season-ticket holders is due on April 7.
