In my morning scan of Bears news, I saw an article from Brad Biggs about the Bears raising ticket prices this season. In his article:
Unless you have season tickets in the club level at Soldier Field, the cost of seeing a Chicago Bears game is going up in 2012.
The team announced Tuesday that ticket prices for non-club seats (approximately 85 percent of the seating at Soldier Field) will increase. Non-club seats are going up between $2 and $10 per ticket and now will range from $76 to $150.
Club seating is not affected and those tickets remain between $265 and $350. Invoices to season-ticket holders will be sent beginning Tuesday and full payments are due by April 9.
According to the Bears, it is the third time in the last four years ticket prices have remained flat in at least one area. Season-ticket holders have the option to make payments online with credit cards, a policy that was changed in the recent past. Payments made by check also will be accepted.
The 2012 home schedule includes the usual division opponents along with Carolina, St. Louis, Seattle, Houston and Indianapolis. There also will be two home preseason games. The schedule is typically announced in April.
I then checked my inbox to my dismay. Here's a link to the letter to Season Ticket Holders from Bears president, Ted Phillips.
