Bears fans loved the team’s success in the 2018, but that comes with a price. Most fans will pay more for tickets next season.

Friday the Chicago Bears announced ticket prices for the 2019 season. Most fans will see a 1-4 percent increase in prices in most sections of Soldier Field. The overall average increase for 2019 season tickets is 4.1 percent. Fans with non-club seats will see prices go up by an average of 5.6 percent. Club seats will go up an average of 1.6 percent per ticket.

The Bears have held-the-line on ticket prices three out of the last four seasons according to a news release distributed by the Bears on Friday.

The Bears also announced that demand-based ticket pricing will continue in 2019. In addition to a preseason tier, each regular-season game will be assigned its own pricing tier, which will be announced with the release of the 2019 NFL schedule in April. Individual game tickets will continue to be sold at a higher price.

New in 2019, the Bears will move to mobile-only ticket entry for games at Soldier Field. Printed tickets will no longer be issued to season ticket holders or single-game buyers. Ticket purchasers will have access to manage their tickets on their mobile device or online, including the ability to share tickets with guests, donate tickets or post tickets for resale. The Bears say mobile ticketing is intended to significantly reduce fraud and provide additional opportunities for enhanced customer experiences.

The Bears 2019 home schedule includes match-ups against Dallas, Detroit, Green Bay, Kansas City, LA Chargers, Minnesota, New Orleans and New York Giants.
