Bears single-game tickets go on sale May 12

Fans will be returning to Soldier Field in 2021 and tickets are going on sale to the general public next week.

The NFL will announce the 2021 schedule at 7 p.m. on May 12. Bears single-game tickets will go on sale an hour and a half later at 8:30 p.m. May 12.

“The Bears are working closely with city, state and public health officials to safely welcome fans back to Soldier Field for the 2021 season,” the team said in a press release. “All city, state and league COVID-19 safety policies will be strictly enforced at Bears home games this season.”

Currently Chicago’s two Major League Baseball teams are hosting fans in a limited capacity at Wrigley Field on the north side and Guaranteed Rate Field on the south side. The Bulls and Blackhawks recently welcomed fans back to the United Center in a limited capacity as well.

The Bears’ announcement comes a day after Chicago Mayor Lori Lightfoot said she expects the city to be “fully open” by the July 4 weekend. Lightfoot announced the city will host the Chicago Auto Show in mid-July.

The Bears said ticket limits and prices will vary by game and demand-based pricing will be used. Season ticket holders and those on the season ticket priority list will have access to a presale before tickets go on sale to the general public.

The Bears are set to host eight home games in 2021 against the Arizona Cardinals, Baltimore Ravens, Cincinnati Bengals, Detroit Lions, Green Bay Packers, Minnesota Vikings, New York Giants and San Francisco 49ers. The Bears’ preseason schedule, which will include two home games, will be released with the regular-season schedule.

Fans can purchase single-game tickets through Ticketmaster online via A limited number of private, single-game suites will also be available.
