Report: NFL to allow fans at preseason games, training camp originally appeared on NBC Sports Chicago
More people may be able to watch the Bears in-person, sooner than expected this year. According to Judy Battista, the NFL told owners that nearly all teams— including the Bears— will be able to allow full capacity for preseason games. Fans will be allowed to watch training camp, as well.
This bodes well for full capacity at Soldier Field for the regular season as well. Single game tickets went on sale for the Bears’ season earlier this month.
The team said it’s working with public health officials to meet COVID-19 safety protocols. Part of that means all tickets this season will be mobile tickets. Further, if a game is canceled, and can’t be rescheduled, or if seating capacity is reduced due to COVID-19, fans will receive a full refund for the tickets they can’t use.
The Bears’ first home game is Week 2 when they host the Cincinnati Bengals. They will also host Mitchell Trubisky and the Buffalo Bills in the second game of the preseason.
