After being empty during the coronavirus pandemic, Soldier Field will be at full capacity for Bears games this season — and vaccinated fans won’t have to wear masks. Fans who are not vaccinated will be “encouraged” to wear masks, Bears president/CEO Ted Phillips wrote in a letter to season ticket holders.

Soldier Field will have hand sanitizer available and conduct deep cleaning and disinfecting of often-touched areas. Tailgating will return to parking lots.

“Last year when you’re trying to get your own fans going on the sideline — your own players are cheering like a high school game on the sideline and it’s quiet,” Nagy said. “It’s just different. Now to have our fans back, that’s beautiful news.”

The Bears also said that they’ll allow a limited number of fans at training camp, which starts July 27 at Halas Hall. The Bears will give further information about how to get free tickets later this month. They’ll hold their “Family Fest” practice on Aug. 3 at Soldier Field.
