Bears increase ticket prices

The Bears have missed the playoffs for three straight years.  But that hasn’t stopped them from increasing ticket prices for the coming season.

The team has announced that ticket prices will be bumped by $2 to $12 per game per seat in 2014, with an average increase of 4.1 percent.  Still, 58 percent of the non-club seats will increase by only $2.

The Bears have not opted to pursue the new trend of variable pricing, with lower prices for some games and higher prices for marquee matchups.

The Bears host the Bills, Dolphins, Saints, Cowboys, Buccaneers, Vikings, Lions, and Packers in 2014.

    Hmm…Just what they probably should have done with the whole NFL ‘stadium experience’ under intense heat lately.

    Why raise ticket prices for this dump of a team?

    I’d rather have mccown and cheaper tix

    “Ted Phillips points out, supply of Soldier Field seats is relatively low, and demand is high”

    Simple economics

    Let’s see, they went 10-6 in 2012 and then fired Lovie Smith and drove Erlacher away. This season, they had a worse record and then signed their second-best quarterback to a huge contract.

    Yup, I would say that merits an increase in ticket prices.

    So Bears fans have to pay MORE money to watch the Bills, Dolphins, Cowboys, Buccaneers, Vikings, and Lions?

    You have my sympathies.

    The Bears / NFL do not play taxes. Solider Field is subsidized by state taxes. So, why do fans have to pay another dime for overpriced tickets? Like always, the NFL is better watched from my couch. Bad socialism. Then, the promote activities in our neighborhoods, which should be a thank you Illinoisans for give the NFL all this money, but it is a be grateful gesture.

    Raising the ticket prices even as the Bears’ defense crumbles. Nice.

    Maybe they can buy some new grass with that money. That’s assuming Cutler’s ridiculous $20+million a year salary doesn’t consume it all.

    Talk about an easy home game season (Saints and Packers excepted). If Da Bears don’t make the playoffs next year, they may’s well change leagues to something less challenging.

    Like Pop Warner, maybe?

    Have to pay jay! No way! Yes way! 8-8 forever!

  15. asublimeday says: Feb 5, 2014 7:33 PM

    I guess not a bad price to watch us go 6-2 at home only to finish 9-7

    Gotta pay for cutler somehow.
