The Bears play their home games at Soldier Field. At 61,500 seats, it is the smallest stadium in the NFL. Soldier Field originally opened in 1924 and was later renovated in advance of the 2003 season. It is located just a couple of miles southeast of downtown. A variety of other sports teams have also called Soldier Field home over the years.
Chicago Bears tickets have been in demand ever since the team was established in 1919 in Decatur, Ill. The team played in the first NFL season in 1920 and moved to Chicago a year after that. Only two current NFL teams played in that 1920 campaign, the Bears and the what are now the Arizona Cardinals. The Bears have won nine NFL titles. Eight were claimed between 1921 and 1963, and the team won Super Bowl XX following the 1985 season.
The first game of the 2012 Bears season will be against the Indianapolis Colts, the closest NFL team to Chicago at 185 miles. The game is expected to be the first for Andrew Luck. The quarterback was drafted first in the 2012 NFL draft. The Colts last visited the Windy City in 2004. The St. Louis Rams pay a visit to Soldier Field on Sept. 23. There is always a sense of intensity and passion when sports teams from St. Louis and Chicago face off. This is the first visit by the Rams to Chicago in three years.
