Seating Information

Being a Chicago Bears Season Ticket Holder isn’t just about coming to games at Soldier Field.  Season Ticket Holders are the lifeblood of the Bears organization.

There are two ways to become a Chicago Bears Season Ticket Holder:

Permanent Seat License 

PSL stands for 'Permanent Seat License', which in exchange for a one-time fee gives the license holder permanent control of the rights to season tickets for a specific seat, including the right to transfer or sell the PSL. PSL seating can be bought and sold through the Bears PSL Marketplace between January and May of each year, or may be transferred privately by submitting the PSL Transfer Form between February 1 and June 1.

 

Non-PSL

Non-PSL season tickets do not require a license fee and are non-transferable. Non-PSL season tickets can only be purchased by joining the Season Ticket Priority List. Bears fans can have their name added to the Season Ticket Priority List (STPL) for a future opportunity to purchase non-PSL season tickets by submitting a $100 per-seat, non-refundable deposit. This deposit will be applied to the first-year purchase price of the season tickets when available.

 

Stadium Map

PSL Seats

PSL Seats

PSL seats are located in sections 101-117, 128-146, 218-256, 330-344, and United Club sections 202-216 and 301-317. PSL seating can be bought and sold through the PSL Marketplace between January and May of each year, or may be transferred privately by submitting the PSL Transfer Form between February 1 and June 1.

PSL Rights

As a PSL owner you have the right to purchase season tickets (pre-season and regular season - playoff games invoiced separately; but excluding the Super Bowl) for your PSL seats for Chicago Bears home games as long as the team plays at Soldier Field. PSL rights do not apply to any other events which may be held at the stadium, including soccer games, college games, concerts or other programs. Club Seat PSLs, however, do receive presale opportunities to purchase tickets to most other events before the general public. Other rights exclusive to PSL holders include permanent control of the season tickets and the right to transfer the PSL (each year from February 1 – June 1).

PSL Agreement

After your purchase of a PSL is confirmed and full payment received, you will be sent a Permanent Seat License Agreement to sign and return. This PSL Agreement is the sole legal document that governs your rights and obligations as Licensee in connection with your PSL. Your PSL Agreement becomes effective only when signed by the Licensor and a fully executed copy will be returned to you for your records.

Season Ticket Requirement

You have the right to purchase season tickets every year for each PSL you hold. If you do not purchase season tickets for your PSL seats by a specified deadline each year, your PSL for that seat terminates. You also forfeit all monies paid for the PSL and all rights to buy season tickets for those seats for that season and all following seasons. In that event, the Bears have the right to resell the license and ticket for those seats with no obligation to you as a former PSL owner.

PSL Transfer

Only one owner may hold a PSL for a given PSL seat at any given time. PSL owners have the right to transfer a PSL by gift, bequest or otherwise, subject to restrictions stated in the PSL Agreement and the following guidelines established by the Bears. Once you transfer a PSL, you no longer have any rights associated with that seat. A PSL may not be transferred more than once per year, except in the case of the death of the PSL owner. A transfer fee is required to transfer a PSL. Transfers are effective when the transferee has assumed all obligations under the PSL agreement and the transfer has been recorded in the PSL records. PSLs can be transferred each year from February 1 – June 1. Transfers may also take place via the Bears PSL Marketplace (subject to certain restrictions) from January – May.

PSL Purchase

When you purchase a PSL and sign your PSL Agreement, you are stating, among other things, that you are not acquiring the PSL as an investment and you have no expectation of profit as a PSL owner. No representations or warranties are made regarding the present or future value of PSLs or their marketability. The PSL is not intended to be an investment and should not be purchased for that reason.

 

Non-PSL Seats

 

Non-PSL Seats

Non-Permanent Seat Licensed (Non-PSL) season tickets do not require a license fee and are non-transferable. Non-PSL seats are located in sections 119-126, 148-155, 318-326, 348-356 and 427-447. 

Non-PSL season tickets can only be purchased by joining the Season Ticket Priority List. Bears fans can have their name added to the Season Ticket Priority List (STPL) for a future opportunity to purchase non-PSL season tickets by submitting a $100 per-seat, non-refundable deposit. This deposit will be applied to the first-year purchase price of the season tickets when available. 

Non-PSL Season Ticket Holders who have renewed by the payment deadline will be eligible to participate in the online seat relocation process.  With the program's Interactive Seat Map technology, STHs will be able to view available seats and select new non-PSL seat locations according to individual preferences in real time.  Please be advised that the number of seats available for relocations may be limited based on high season ticket renewal rates.   

Non-PSL seats can be converted into PSL seats through the Bears Seat-Specific PSL program. 

 

Seat-Specific PSLs

 

Seat-Specific PSLs

Seat-specific PSL is the name given to all PSLs being offered for purchase in what are now non-PSL seating areas: Sections 119-126, 149-154, 318-326, 348-356, and 427-447. The term "seat-specific" refers to the fact that original PSL purchasers had to make their buying decision based only on a two-dimensional drawing and the knowledge that they would be seated somewhere within a particular zone. A non-PSL season ticket holder has the advantage of having actually sat in the seats before deciding whether to buy PSLs for particular seats.
