Bears to hold Super Bowl ticket lottery

A lucky few Bears season ticket holders found out Thursday that they’re going to Super Bowl XLV — if they’re willing to part with at least $800 a seat and the Bears beat the Packers Sunday to take the NFC title.

Randomly selected ticket owners were given the option of buying a maximum of two Super Bowl seats each.

The exact number of tickets being offered wasn’t available, but selected fans will have their choice of $800 or $900 tickets depending on the view.

The notification process may take a few days and fans will be able to pick up their tickets next week, Bears spokesman Scott Hagel said.

Tickets that selected fans decline to buy will be offered to other season ticket holders.

The game will be played Feb. 6 at Cowboys Stadium in Arlintgon, Texas.
