With the City of Chicago joining the State of Illinois in moving to Phase Five of the pandemic recovery, restrictions on businesses are going away next Friday. That, in turn, means capacity limits at Wrigley Field will be no more when the Cubs host the Cardinals for that weekend’s series. It’s going to be nuts.
Today, the Cubs announced the move to full capacity, together with a ticket sale for the rest of the season kicking off tomorrow:
Following approval from the State of Illinois and City of Chicago, the Chicago Cubs are thrilled to announce the team is approved to host 100% of Wrigley Field’s capacity as the State and City transition to Phase 5 Friday, June 11. Wrigley Field’s increased capacity will go into effect when the Cubs begin their three-game series against the St. Louis Cardinals. Single game tickets for all home games through the remainder of the regular season will go on sale to the general public tomorrow, June 5, at 2 p.m. CDT, at www.cubs.com.
As part of the move to Phase 5, the club is amending its health and safety protocols. Outdoor and indoor capacity restrictions will be lifted, physical distancing will no longer be required in the ballpark and pod-style seating will be eliminated. To support full capacity, gates will open two hours before first pitch, Cubs Season Ticket Holders will return to their season ticket seat location and the Budweiser Bleachers will return to general admission. The ballpark’s touchless entry process and bag restrictions implemented at the start of the regular season will remain in place as well as mobile tickets and cashless concessions and retail.
Private spaces also are available and can be purchased to celebrate key milestones such as birthdays and graduations. Fans interested in securing private spaces are encouraged to join the private spaces waiting list at www.cubs.com/premier.
Wrigley Field is BACK! #CubTogether
