In a copy of the letter posted on Reddit, Phillips writes: “The 2021 season ticket information will be shared in the coming days. Season ticket prices will not be increased for the upcoming season. This decision will not change even if we were to host a ninth regular season game and only one preseason contest in 2021.”
Phillips also states that if Soldier Field is unable to be filled to capacity, or if they are unable to have any live fans in attendance, all season ticket holders will receive a refund or can credit their payments to the 2022 season.
In addition to the ticket information, Phillips detailed the team’s “robust stadium cleaning and disinfecting plan” as a response to the COVID-19 pandemic. The new safety features include touchless payment options at concessions and retails locations, hand sanitizing stations, continued use of the mobile-only ticketing system, and new hygiene signage.
While the COVID-19 pandemic prevented the Bears from having fans in the stands, they did increase ticket prices by nearly four percent last year heading into the 2020 season. It was the second consecutive year where the team raised prices for season ticket holders.
More ticket information for the 2021 season is expected to be shared in the coming days and weeks.
