The Bears’ bye week, stuff road games and recent injuries have left us a little despondent and aching for a solid Bears fix to get back on track this season. Thankfully, site the timing on the Bears annual Ladies Night at Soldier Field couldn’t come at a better time.
The Chicago Bears host Meijer Bears Football 101 presented by Chase on Tuesday, November 12th.
As dedicated and aware Chicago Bears fans, we know our numbers are surging as more and more women become active NFL fans each year. Teams are paying more attention to the ladies than ever before and continue to offer exclusive events with their female fan base in mind.
Meijer Football 101 presented by Chase is an opportunity for women to get an inside look at the Bears organization with a behind-the-scenes look at Soldier Field. Marketed as a ‘101’, the unique event is actually more of a celebration of female fans as women of all walks of life and fan affiliation come together for one special night at Soldier Field.
I’ve attended the event the last three years in a row and I still get overclempt each time I walk into the Bears locker room and circle the sidelines during the tour of Soldier Field. The opportunity to meet the rookie class and hear first hand of game day experiences, offensive and defensive strategies and other team anecdotes is just cool – no matter if you’ve been following the Bears since childhood or just jumped on the wagon this season. Read my review from last year’s event for full disclosure.
For me, the event is a must hit each year, if anything, just to walk the unobstructed halls of Soldier Field’s posh United Club with my female counterparts and observe the diverse and spirited Bears female fan base. Vendors are on on site with everything from drink samples to product demonstrations and the Bears Pro Shop is open with a variety of the latest female fashion available for purchase.
Tickets are on sale now and start at $60.00 for general admission and $75.00 for reserved seating. All attendees receive a light boxed dinner and a swag bag. There are cash bars and additional food for purchase.
