CHICAGO — The Chicago Bears announced ticket prices for the 2013 season Wednesday, and once again, prices will go up.

For the 10th time in 11 years, the city's beloved Bears will charge more per ticket for most seats — an overall average increase of 4.2 percent.

Price increases range from $3 to $10 for 90 percent of Soldier Field's 61,500 seats, though some of the pricier United Club seats will remain unchanged.

"The increase is a large part of remaining economically competitive and building a championship football team," said Bears spokesman Scott Hagel.

Additional increases include a lower-level, mid-field rise of $15 to $30. Non-club ticket prices, which account for roughly 85 percent of seats, will now cost $79 to $165.

While season ticket holders will continue to see a $25 per game savings compared to individual ticket prices, United Club season tickets will range from $265 to $540.

According to Hagel, this year is the fourth time in the last five years that Bears tickets have held flat in at least one ticket category.

The Bears reportedly have the 4th highest ticket prices in the NFL.
