The Chicago Bears are going through some big changes at Halas Hall, but despite all the new contracts and the responsibility of paying for those coaches that are no longer in the building, the team announced on Wednesday that they would not increase season ticket prices.
In a letter to fans, team president Ted Phillips talked about the struggles that the team had on the field in the 2014 season, and offered hope that the new year would be a more fruitful one for the organization.
“The 2014 season started with hopes and ended in total disappointment,” he said. “We decided that a new direction was necessary, and we have acted quickly and decisively.
Phillips goes on to talk about the hiring of G.M. Ryan Pace and head coach John Fox in the letter, and he also discusses the decision to not raise ticket prices for the 2015 season.
“We will continue to deliver value to make your gameday experience at Soldier Field second to none,” he said. “Your 2015 season ticket prices will not increase. We will introduce new enhancements to Soldier Field and continued improvements to the year-round experience for our loyal and dedicated fans. Our goal is simple: Play tough and smart and bring the Super Bowl trophy back to Chicago for the greatest fans in the world. You deserve it.”
The Bears’ schedule hasn’t been finalized yet, but there are several big home dates on the schedule. Fox will coach against his former team when the Denver Broncos come to town, and new defensive coordinator Vic Fangio will get to coach against his former team when the Bears welcome in the San Francisco 49’ers. Three other playoff teams will make the journey to Chicago as well, as the Arizona Cardinals, Green Bay Packers, and Detroit Lions will all visit Soldier Field.
