SOLDIER ON: The Bears on Friday announced the addition of the Miller Lite Loft at Soldier Field, which adds three rows of seating, totaling 148 new fixed outdoor seats, and 90 standing-room-only positions. The new loft area, located in the stadium's south end zone, includes a private bar and concession stand, a windscreen, as well as ceiling-mounted heaters and televisions. The space will also be used for non-Bears events. The loft is scheduled for completion during the '13 season and will replace the Miller Lite Party Deck on the north side of the stadium (Bears).
