StubHub shuts down free Chicago Bears training camp tickets being resold for $300+

CHICAGO — Less than 24 hours after the Chicago Bears ran out of free tickets to their 2024 training camp, the tickets started to re-appear on StubHub for more than $300 a piece.

After registration for Bears training camp tickets closed late Tuesday morning, the tickets, that were offered by the club for free, were sold on StubHub for as much as $134 each, with some being listed as high as $359, according to available listings at the time on the ticket reseller website.

After WGN News reached out to StubHub, the ticket listings were subsequently removed from StubHub’s website and a spokesperson reached out, citing the resale of free tickets on their platform was in violation of StubHub policy.

“StubHub policy prohibits the buying and selling of tickets to free events on our marketplace,” the spokesperson said. “These tickets were listed mistakenly, and we can confirm they have been removed from our site and any tickets sold have been canceled.”

The Bears first training camp practice open to the public is Friday, July 26. Those still hoping to attend may be out of luck though, as free tickets to all nine open training camp practices sold out within an hour of being released by the team.

Bears training camp officially gets underway next Tuesday, July 16, when rookies are required to report, while veteran players are required to report three days later on Friday, July 19.
