The Bears are currently accepting deposits for 10-game ticket packages which includes two preseason opponents (Denver and Jacksonville) and the eight-game home regular season slate including the Detroit Lions, Green Bay Packers, Minnesota Vikings, New Orleans Saints, Tampa Bay Buccaneers, Philadelphia Eagles, New England Patriots and New York Jets. Dates and times will be announced by the NFL at a later date.
The Bears are not requiring current season ticket holders to purchase tickets to retain their seating priority when the Bears open their new stadium at Soldier Field in 2003. Current Bears' season ticket holders will receive preference and upgrade priority at Memorial Stadium.
Fans interested in purchasing 10-game ticket packages should contact the Chicago Bears ticket office at (847) 615-BEAR, via email at firstname.lastname@example.org or on-line at chicagobears.com. In order to secure a spot on the waiting list, a $100 per-seat, non-refundable deposit is required (the deposit will be applied to the first-year ticket balance).
