The same day the Chicago Bears announced that they signed head coach Lovie Smith to a contract extension, the team also announced that they’re raising tickets prices for the 2011 season.

For the first time in three years, the team will raise ticket prices across the board.

For non-club seats the increase ranges from $5-$15, bringing the price range for those seats to $74-$140 each. Club seats will see an increase ranging from $10-$30 per ticket, for a total price between $265-$530 per seat.

The 2011 Bears home schedule includes games against the Atlanta Falcons, Carolina Panthers, Kansas City Chiefs, San Diego Chargers and their three NFC North opponents. The exact dates for the games haven’t been released.
