The 4th Phase will be in full effect! Teams do not want to come to Soldier Field because of the elements and the sloppy turf. Tickets went on sale this morning at 10:00am CST and sold out in minutes.
From the Chicago Sun-Times:
If you didn't get your Bears playoff tickets Wednesday
morning, you'll have to shell out big bucks through a ticket reseller --
or watch the game on TV.
A limited number of NFC Divisional playoff tickets put on sale through
Ticketmaster starting at 10 a.m. Wednesday quickly sold out in four to
six minutes, team officials said Wednesday.
Officials did not say how many tickets were put on sale for the game
Jan. 16, but about 90 percent of Soldier Field's 61,500 seats were
already offered to season ticket holders, team spokesman Scott Hagel
said Tuesday. The face-value of the tickets were in some cases more than
50 percent more expensive than regular-season seats. The cheapest seats
cost $107, while United Club-level seats cost $559 each.
Tickets offered through NFL Ticket Exchange, a ticket reseller, ranged
in price from $205 to nearly $1,500 Wednesday.
