Mobile Ticketing

Mobile Ticketing

As part of a league-wide initiative, the Bears have replaced the print-at-home PDF ticket option with mobile ticketing. PDF tickets will no longer be valid for entry. Please use the guide below to learn more.

Your phone is your ticket. We strongly recommend the following important tips:

  • Add your ticket(s) to your digital wallet before arrival (iOS)
  • Charge your phone battery fully before heading to the stadium
  • Transfer (forward) each attendee their own ticket in advance
  • Have your mobile tickets ready before arriving to the gate

Beginning this season, all parking passes will be sent to fans electronically. Season pass and single game purchasers must print (in color) the appropriate pass prior to the game and bring it to the game.

The mobile parking pass must be visible to traffic aides when you are approaching the stadium – follow the suggested routes to each lot. Click here for the entrance routes map. Click here for the exit routes map.
