2012 Bears Offseason: Chicago Raises Ticket Prices Again

The Chicago Bears have announced their ticket prices for the upcoming 2012 NFL Season, and the news is not great for the fan bereft of extra coin:

Non-club seat increases range from $2 to $10. The Bears’ non-club ticket prices now range from $76 to $150 and account for approximately 85 percent of the seating at Soldier Field. Club seats range from $265 to $530.

Mark Potash of the Chicago Sun-Times reports that this is the 9th time in the last 10 seasons that the Bears have increased their ticket prices -- despite sporting only an 8-8 record in the 2011 NFL Season. When the new Soldier Field opened in 2003, Potash says, the non-club seats ranged from $45 to $85.

The Bears boast, in Soldier Field, the lowest-capacity stadium in the NFL (with 1,500 fewer seats then the 63,000 in the Colts' Lucas Oil Stadium):

The Bears did not raise the prices on their most expensive seats, however, leaving their club seats in their previous $265 to $530 range.
