Bears 2020 Attendance Policy
UPDATE: On August 18th the Bears announced that there will be no fans allowed at Soldier Field to start the season. In the statement they went on to say that "The team and City will continue to monitor the environment and believe there can be a sound plan in place to bring fans back to Soldier Field once it is deemed safe and appropriate. Until then, Bears home games will not include in-person fans.”
On July 24th, the Chicago Bears announced that if fans are allowed at Soldier Field this season that it would be at reduced capacity. Also, there won't be any season ticket packages available. Instead, PSL holders will be given first priority to single game tickets.
All Season Ticket Holders have the option to either receive a refund for their 2020 tickets or get a credit for the 2021 season. Season ticket holders will also automatically be given the opportunity to purchase 2021 season tickets in the same seating location.
In their letter to ticket holders, they also stated that "more details regarding single game ticket opportunities and the gameday experience, including parking, tailgating, stadium entry, food and beverage, retail, and safety procedures will be communicated as we get closer to our first home game."
Where To Buy 2020 Bears Tickets
Chicago Bears tickets are available for sale on the secondary market as of the 2020 schedule release.
Potential Covid-19 Impact On 2020 NFL Schedule
While the schedule release is a much-needed dose of exciting news for all football fans, there are some major questions marks heading into the 2020 season due to the Coronavirus pandemic. While teams know what teams they'll play, that's about all they know. Whether or not the games happen and if fans are able to attend will depend on how the virus is managed over the next 2-3 months. The league has already canceled all of its International Series games, and the league is rightly considering all possible scenarios.
Based on the varying levels of infection in each NFL city and state, it's possible that some teams may be able to host fans at a reduced capacity while others may not. The Dolphins announced a preliminary plan last week, with a 25% of capacity goal. Based on the below NFL Covid-19 Safety Index, the Dolphins fall within the low-risk category, just barely.
To create the Safety Index, we compared the active cases in each city or state to the national average and then discounted that product by Rt. Rt is a measure of how fast the virus is spreading in each city and state, most easily tracked through Rt.live.
