Bears' Secondary Ticket Market Down

(670 The Score) As the NFL regular season faces an uncertain future amid the coronavirus pandemic, it has affected the market for Bears tickets.
The average price for Bears tickets on the secondary market has dropped from 2019, with those tickets averaging $466, the Athletic reported. While that $466 mark is down for the Bears, the figure still exceeds the average price of $391 for the NFL's 32 teams. The Bears' decrease is also in contrast to the NFL as a whole, as the league has seen a 51% increase in average ticket price from last year, the Athletic reported.

Part of the 51% increase in average ticket costs is the arrival of the Raiders to Las Vegas. The average ticket price for Raiders games is $1,098, according to the article.

The average cost for a Bears ticket ranks 10th among the league's 32 teams, just ahead of the Packers, whose tickets cost an average of $442 on the secondary market. Only four teams have seen their average ticket price decrease in cost year over year to this point, according to the article: the Bears, Patriots, Lions and Chargers. The Bears went 8-8 in a disappointing 2019 after going 12-4 and winning the NFC North in 2018.

The Bears play at the Detroit Lions in their regular-season opener on Sept. 13. The welcome the Giants to Soldier Field for their home opener on Sept. 20.

The league is planning to play its 2020 season as scheduled -- and with fans in attendance. However, that's all still subject to change amid the pandemic.
