In case you didn’t know, you can start getting single game tickets for 2009 Chicago Cubs games today. Several ways to do it:
Via the Internet: Visitors to cubs.com can purchase tickets beginning at 10 a.m. CT on Friday.
A virtual waiting room will be used for all Internet orders. The virtual waiting room will begin accepting customers at 9:30 a.m. CT on Friday. At 10 a.m. CT, customers will be randomly selected from the virtual waiting room to begin purchasing tickets. All Internet customers will need a valid cubs.com account.
At the Wrigley Field Box Office: Tickets will go on sale at 8 a.m. CT on Friday, and a random wristband system will be used. There will be no advantage to camping out at the ballpark, as initial position in lines will be established by a random drawing of all wristbands distributed prior to 6 a.m. CT that day.
Wristbands were available until 10 p.m. CT on Thursday. A random drawing will be held shortly after 6 a.m. on Friday to determine the starting number for the ticket lines. The winning number will immediately be announced on WGN Radio (720 AM) and on cubs.com. All other numbers will follow the selected number.
By telephone: Tickets can be purchased by telephone through Tickets.com beginning at 10 a.m. CT Friday. The Tickets.com phone number for Illinois callers is 800-The-Cubs (800-843-2827). The phone number for out-of-state callers is 866-652-2827. cubs.com.
