									    ADA Drop-Off/Pick-Up Area… Patrons with disabilities may be dropped
    off on the circle drive (southeast side of stadium) on Museum Campus Drive
    outside Gate 10. An ADA placard or ADA license plate must be visible to the
    police and parking attendants, and the person to whom the placard or license
    plate is registered must be an occupant of the vehicle in order to access the
    Gate 10 drop-off. The driver of the vehicle will then be directed back into the
    traffic queue to the nearest available cash parking, likely at the Southwest
    Parking Facilities at Michael Reese Hospital or the East Monroe St / Millennium
    Park Garages. At Soldier Field, Standard Parking will have a limited number
    of courtesy carts available for transport of the disabled patron to and from the
    Museum Campus parking lots and the shuttle turnaround at 18th Street. Only
    the disabled patron and one companion will be permitted on the carts.

    Alcohol Beverages/Drugs… Alcohol is strictly prohibited from being
    carried into Soldier Field, and the use of illegal drugs is prohibited within
    Soldier Field, the surrounding parkland and parking lots. Beer will be sold
    at designated concession stands within the stadium and will also be served
    by vendors in the seating bowl area. Alcohol policies are posted at every
    concession stand. Underage drinking will not be tolerated and offenders are
    subject to arrest. We ask that our patrons be respectful of the neighborhood
    surrounding Soldier Field. Drinking alcohol on the public way and
    surrounding parklands is a violation of the law.
    	 •	 Illinois	State	Law	requires	that	individuals	must	be	21	years	of	
6         age or older to purchase or consume alcoholic beverages.
    	 •	 All	patrons	purchasing	alcoholic	beverages	are	subject	to	providing	
          proper identification, such as a valid state driver’s license, military
          identification card, state issued photo identification, or passport.
    	 •	 Concessions	clerks,	stadium	security,	and	Bears	representatives	
          reserve the right to check for proof of age.
    	 •	 There	is	a	maximum	of	two	(2)	alcoholic	beverages	per	purchase	at	all		
          concession stands serving alcohol and one (1) from in-seat vendors.

          Chicago Park District ordinances prevent alcohol from being served
          on Sundays before 10:00 a.m. Sales will be discontinued at the
          end of the third quarter or earlier at the discretion of Soldier Field and/or
          Chicago Bears management. No alcohol can leave the stadium.
    	 •	 No	alcohol	will	be	sold	to	intoxicated	guests.
    	 •	 The	Bears,	Sportservice	and	Miller	Brewing	Company	offer	a	
          Designated Driver program (see “Designated Driver”).

    America’s Veterans…	Built	in	honor	of	World	War	I	veterans,	the	
    designation “Soldier Field” will remain the only name for the stadium. A
    “Doughboy” foot soldier statue greets visitors inside Gate 0 at the stadium’s
    south end. A dramatic Veteran’s Memorial water wall and bronze sculpture
    are located adjacent to the Gate 47 entry to honor American veterans of all
    wars from every branch of service. Soldier Field’s historic colonnades (see
    “Colonnades”) are open year-round to the public, as they were originally
    intended.
                                                                    2007 FAN GUIDE

Code of Conduct…	Proper	behavior	is	expected	of	all	patrons	at	Chicago
