The Chicago Bears are continuing to grow their fan experience outside the venue walls of Solider Field. In collaboration with Arena Partners, which recently acquired the team’s official tailgate partner E3 VIP, the Bears are blending tailgating with corporate hospitality, adding a series of new pregame luxury tailgating events in 2016.
The E3 Mobile Skybox, the 50-foot trailer with rooftop deck introduced two years ago, is now the Arena Club, which offers upscale F&B and pregame live entertainment for $179 per person.
In addition to the Arena Club, a new luxury tailgating area has been unveiled. Kick-Off, a 10,000-square-foot all-inclusive tailgate zone across from Soldier Field, is less expensive – $69 per person – and will be accessible for free to children ages 12 and under.
Additionally, Arena Partners offers Bears fans an opportunity to reserve a parking space and adjacent personal tailgate space, and rent all the necessities – tents, tables, chairs, coolers with ice, and charcoal grills (food not included). The cost for this amenity, which Arena Partners unpacks and sets up for fans, is $299 per game. F&B for four people can be added for $349.
