Bears want fans to smile, say cheese

Posted by Larry Mayer on November 9, 2012 – 2:13 pm

As part of Sunday night’s “Salute to Service” game against the Texans, the Bears will honor active military and veterans by allowing fans to participate in a unique photo prior to kickoff.

At approximately 7:20 p.m., the Bears FANCAM-an ultra-high-def five billion pixel 360-degree image-will be taken of the entire stadium. Fans will be able to “step inside” the image and look around by visiting ChicagoBears.com/fancam after Nov. 13.

The resolution will be so high that fans will be able to zoom in to find themselves or friends, “tag” themselves in the photo, and share this historic Soldier Field photo via email, Facebook and Twitter. Fans can even cruise around the stadium to see who else was in the stands.

Fans will also have the opportunity to purchase a panoramic photo from the National Anthem in which 10 percent of every purchase will benefit the USO of Illinois.

Fans should be ready to stand up, cheer, and waive their American Flags to take part in the commemorative fan photo. All those attending the game are encouraged to be in the stadium early to recognize veterans and military members and be a part of Bears fan history.
