Wrigley Field Rooftops Will Reportedly Be Open At Limited Capacity for the Cubs Season

Chicago Cubs

Last week, Chicago Cubs President of Baseball Operations Crane Kenney said that the team was hoping to be able to have fans at Wrigley Field at some point this year with limited capacity, and was talking to medical professionals about how that could be possible. The Mayor, however, is not ready to give the green light on that, so we’ll see when we see.

In the meantime, though, Kenney mentioned the Cubs’ unique position with respect to the Wrigley Field Rooftops, most of which are owned by the Ricketts Family, and each of which operate as their own business. Unlike Wrigley Field, it would be possible to have attendance at the rooftops and still fall under the city’s current guidelines for group gatherings.

To that end, the scoop:

The 16 rooftops average about 200 seats, so a 25% capacity would be about 50 tickets per rooftop per game. In total, you’d be talking about less than 1000 tickets available per game if there were no seating available in Wrigley Field. I’m thinking, even in a pandemic, those tickets would be hot items.

… if the season happens.
