Bears increase ticket prices

If you want to watch the Bears play at Soldier Field next season, prepare to open your wallet.

The Bears announced Wednesday that most ticket prices will increase for the 2013 season. The average price increase is 4.2 percent for season-ticket holders, which includes price increases of $3 to $10 a ticket for 90 percent of the seating bowl as well as price increases of $15 to $30 a ticket for a selection of lower-level, mid-field seats.

Some ticket prices in the Bears' United Club will remain flat.

After the price increases, non-club tickets will range from $79 to $165 per game. Those tickets account for about 85 percent of seating at Soldier Field, according to the Bears. Meanwhile, United Club season tickets will range in price from $265 to $540 per game.

The Bears' home schedule in 2013 includes a game against the reigning Super Bowl champion Baltimore Ravens. The Bears also will host their three division rivals – the Green Bay Packers, Detroit Lions and Minnesota Vikings – as well as the Cincinnati Bengals, the New Orleans Saints, the Dallas Cowboys and the New York Giants.

A full schedule including dates and kickoff times will be released this spring.
