Chicago Bears move to Arlington Heights may leave thousands of fans with worthless Soldier Field seat licenses

Nov 2, 2021

When Chicago attorney Jerry Latherow paid $18,000 to buy four permanent seat licenses at Soldier Field last year, the Bears season ticket holder upgraded from a nearby section to get a better view of the scoreboard.

He may soon need a telescope, after the Bears signed a $197.2 million purchase agreement in September for Arlington International Racecourse, presaging the team’s move to a new stadium — 30 miles from his 50-yard-line seats at Soldier Field.
