Bears Announce They Will NOT Be Raising Ticket Prices
It looks like the Bears are at least self-aware enough to realize that upping ticket prices right now might not be the best idea.
The numbers don't lie. The Bears haven't had a winning season since 2012, Lovie Smith's last. And next year they will introduce their third head coach since then. No matter how you slice it, the product on the field hasn't been good. That has to be the driving force behind the following letter sent to ticket holders from team president and CEO Ted Phillips.
WGN...That standard has not been met in recent years and we know your patience has been tested. We remain confident in the plan that Ryan Pace laid out three years ago, knowing that it would not be easy and would involve major changes. The foundation is in place and we believe the future is bright. We will make you proud to be a Chicago Bears season ticket holder.
To borrow a quote from any snarky 6-year-old, "No duh."
This is the third time in four years that the price of season tickets has remained stable. Speaking as a Bears fan that doesn't have season tickets, I really hope the price goes up soon because these Bears are just no fun to watch right now.
We turn to you Matt Nagy. Lead us to higher ticket prices please.
