Bears-Packers tickets expected to go fast

A few thousand tickets to the Bears showdown against the Packers for the NFC title are set to go on sale Tuesday at 2 p.m. — and they won’t last.

Bears spokesman Scott Hagel said he expects sales to be brisk, similar to the release of tickets for the divisional playoff that sold out in just minutes.

The limited number of seats — which are on sale for between $134 and $586 — will be sold online at or by phone at (800) 745-3000.

If you miss out on those tickets, expect to pay a premium from brokers and online sites. The best seats — United Club and lower level seats — were going for more than $3,000 each on Monday.
