The team will make a limited number of tickets available for the 6 p.m. practice in Mount Prospect. Starting Friday at 11 a.m., fans can get free tickets at http://www.chicagobears.com/events/varsity-bears.html.

The parking lot opens at 3:30 p.m. on Aug. 17, with gates opening a half-hour later on the campus at 801 W. Kensington Road in Mount Prospect. Practice starts at 6 p.m. and figures to last between 90 minutes and two hours.
