When the weather starts to cool, Chicago Bears fans gear up and head to Soldier Field. With more regular-season and overall wins than any other NFL team, the greatest number of past players in the Pro Football Hall of Fame, and adored personalities like Walter Payton, Mike Ditka and Gayle Sayers in its back rosters, 'da Bears have a rich football history and a loyal and passionate following. The Bears have won nine league championships: Super Bowl XX and eight pre-Super Bowl championships.
Your football adventure actually begins a few hours before the game starts. In parking lots surrounding iconic Soldier Field, fans arrive early and tailgate. No matter the weather, you will see people cooking anything from hot dogs to venison on an open flame, having a good time and throwing around bean bags or a football while getting ready to cheer the Bears to victory. If you are driving in for your visit, be sure to stake your spot early.
Before entering the stadium, you will be greeted by the Chicago Bears Drumline. Speaking of the stadium, Soldier Field is as much a landmark as it is a stadium. The exterior serves as a tribute to men and women that gave their lives for our freedom; the inside is a state-of-the-art athletic arena that provides fans with a world-class viewing experience.
Plenty of food and beverage options await you inside the stadium and when the game clock isn't running there is plenty of entertainment to keep you in the spirit.
HOME SEASON SCHEDULE & TICKETS
