Come on out and see the Chicago Bears practice on August 22nd on the northshore this year at Vernon Hills High School. Tickets and parking will be free, but patrons will need to register on the Bears website and present a downloaded ticket in order to gain access. 5,000 tickets will be available.
Cliff Stein, vice president of football administration for the Bears, presented details to the Vernon Hills Village Board telling them that this is a great chance to still see the Bears in their own community” Stein said. “This will really be the only time this year that fans will have the opportunity to come see the Bears practice other than training camp,” Stein said. The Bears practice will conclude around 9 p.m., at which point a fireworks show will begin, Stein said.
In prior years, as part of a community outreach program, the Bears held one-day practices at Warren Township High School and Prospect High School. Vernon Hills village trustees on Tuesday granted permits for this year’s event. “Kids will be able to walk from their homes to Vernon Hills High School and watch the Bears practice,” said Brian McDonald, athletic director at Vernon Hills High School. “I mean, it’s a cool opportunity that doesn’t come around very often and we’re excited to provide that opportunity to our community.”
