for the 2013 season.  The increase has a range from $2 to $5, depending on the section in the stadium bowl, with nearly half of the seats to increase $2.

“These increases will keep us at about the League average in terms of ticket price, which is our goal,” team President/CEO Mark Murphy said in a letter to season ticket holders.  “We want to be fair to the visiting teams in terms of shared revenue (visiting teams receive one-third of all ticket revenue), but also be as affordable as possible for you.

Tickets in the end-zone seats (sections 100-108, 131-138, 303-312 and 340-354), representing nearly half of the lower seating bowl, will increase $2 to $74.  Tickets from the 20-yard line to the end zone (sections 109-114, 125-130, 314-320 and 332-338) will increase $5 to $85, and tickets between the 20-yard lines (sections 115-124 and 322-330) will increase $5 to $97.

Comparatively speaking around the NFC North for the 2012 season, the best sideline seat for the Bears was $175, Vikings $143 and the Lions $119.
