"We're excited to welcome Bears fans back to Halas Hall for Enjoy Illinois Chicago Bears Training Camp," said Bears President and CEO Ted Phillips. "This is a critical time of year in our preparation for the season, but it also offers unique access for our fanbase. No other club event, including game days, provides the proximity our fans will have to players and coaches as they train.

"We have improved the ticketing process for 2022, added new food and beverage options, and expanded on-site activities to create an even better fan experience. With the NFL's Covid-19 protocols behind us, we're looking forward to bringing back the tradition of player and fan interaction, which has been a staple of Bears training camp for decades."

The Illinois Office of Tourism returns as the title sponsor of training camp, after having a similar role in 2019. Through the partnership, IOT will hold a special day at camp to highlight the many experiences, attractions and tourism locations that make Illinois unique.

"The Illinois Department of Commerce and Economic Opportunity (DCEO) is excited to partner with the Chicago Bears as the title sponsor of this year's Enjoy Illinois Chicago Bears Training Camp at Halas Hall," said DCEO Director Sylvia I. Garcia.

"This is an incredible opportunity to drive economic development and tourism in the Lake County region to help support our small businesses, hotels and restaurants. We look forward to welcoming thousands of Bears fans from across the state and around the country to explore everything our great state has to offer."
