Bears' ticket prices on the rise

Without any fanfare, the Chicago Bears have significantly raised single-game ticket prices.

Chicago media got an annual e-mail about single-game tickets going on sale this Friday, but the range of prices seemed skewed compared to the past, with no explanation. Last year, the cheapest ticket, for both season-ticket holders and single-game purchasers, was $74 for 400 level seats. This season, that price jumped to $101 for single games, as compared to $76 for season-ticket holders.
