Chicago Cubs Announce 2023 Promotional Schedule
Today the Chicago Cubs announced the promotional/giveaway/special event schedule for the year, and it’s a pretty robust collection. The Cubs obviously need a little extra boost to get folks out to the ballpark right now, and I think they did a good job.
You can see the full complement of games and events and giveaways here, and the Cubs highlighted some of the best stuff in a video:
The team’s official release:
The Chicago Cubs today released the promotional calendar for the 2023 regular season featuring over 50 promotional items including a new Wrigley Field statue bobblehead series and exclusive #BudFridays cap collection, nine ballpark celebrations, 25 Special Ticket Offers and more. Cubs fans can take advantage of some of these offers and special events when single game tickets go on sale Friday, February 24.
For the first time ever, the Cubs will have a bobblehead series featuring the five Cubs legends who have statues at Wrigley Field. These new statue bobbleheads will be given to the first 10,000 fans who enter Wrigley Field on the designated date and are meant to be collected as a series to create a miniature version of Wrigley Field’s “Statue Row” (Harry Caray statue included!).
The statue bobblehead schedule is as follows:
Saturday, May 6: Fergie Jenkins statue bobblehead presented by Wendella
Saturday, May 27: Billy Williams statue bobblehead presented by Coca-Cola
Wednesday, July 19: Ernie Banks statue bobblehead presented by Wintrust
Sunday, August 20: Ron Santo statue bobblehead presented by Reynolds/Hefty

Fans will have access to additional bobbleheads tied to specific ballpark celebrations, Special Ticket Offers and gate giveaways throughout the 2023 regular season.
This season’s #BudFridays giveaways will include a collection of six exclusive caps featuring various Cubs logos throughout the years, starting with the iconic Cubs 1914 logo Friday, May 26. The first 5,000 fans who are 21 years of age or older and enter through the Budweiser Bleacher Gate on the designated gameday are eligible to receive these #BudFridays giveaways.
Fans also can enjoy additional gate giveaways such as a 2023 Opening Day pin, Cubs branded beanie and Hawaiian shirt both presented by Jim Beam (21+), replica Nike Cubs City Connect Jersey presented by Benjamin Moore and an MLB London Series luggage tag presented by American Airlines.
