Their stadium seats 63K. By comparison, Jerry gets at least 20K more tickets sold every game (with all the standing room only tickets, it's more than that). At $200 average price, that's $4MM per game, or $40MM per year, plus whatever else those extra 20K fans buy every game (food, merch). So, it's easily $50MM+ per year in revenue that Jerry has on anything Chicago can do. So, it wouldn't surprise me if they were losing money, too.
