Tickets for the Chicago Bears & Green Bay Packers NFC Championship meeting at Soldier Field are in high demand. ChicagoBreakingSports is reporting that normally cheap seats are going for almost 4x their face value.
Seats for next Sunday’s clash between the Bears and the Green Bay Packers in the NFC Championship Game at Soldier Field are easily the most in-demand tickets in Chicago sports history, several ticket brokers said Monday.
The worst seats in the upper reaches of the stadium – with a face value of $134 for Sunday’s game — are selling for about $500 each on the secondary market, according to brokers and several ticket resale websites.
Decent seats in the stadium’s lower levels are selling for at least $1,500 to $2,000 per ticket, said Melissa Janes, who works for a Chicago-area ticket broker.
“This is what the market is, so if you want to go, you’re going to have to take out a small loan or use your mortgage payment,” said Janes, who said Chicago hasn’t seen such demand for sports tickets since Michael Jordan was leading the Bulls to six NBA titles in the 1990s.
