Chicago Cubs’ single game tickets on sale now


On the day Opening Night starter Jon Lester made his spring debut for the Chicago Cubs against the Cincinnati Reds earlier this afternoon – fans are now able to purchase single game tickets for the upcoming season according to the teams official twitter handle.

As expected, tickets for Lester’s first start of the season against the St. Louis Cardinals are currently sold out. With the bleachers still undergoing a face lift, fans have no choice but the pack the rest of the house in what’s expected to be a showdown for the ages. Some season ticket holders are currently selling their seats on eBay from anywhere between $200-$1,200 for a pair.

That may be a little extreme but there’s definitely people out there who are willing to fork out the extra cash in what could be a potential post-season match-up.

Now that single game tickets are available, fans interested in visiting the ‘Friendly Confines’ this season have a choice between multiple packages. The first, obviously, will be single tickets for games held at Wrigley Field throughout the season.

Other options announced earlier in the year include a handful of tickets in their ‘Summer Six’, ‘Family Day’, ‘Rivals’, or ‘Bobblehead’ packs – which includes certain promotions for specific games.

Top ‘Marquee Games‘ that are expected to be somewhat pricier than others feature the Miami Marlins, Chicago White Sox, Philadelphia Phillies, and the World Series champion San Francisco Giants.

After opening the year with three games against the Cardinals from Apr. 5-8, the Cubs will be back in town for a six-game home stand against the Reds and the San Diego Padres between Apr. 13-19.

The three game weekend series against the Padres begins on Friday, Apr. 17 at 1:20 central time with the first 10,000 fans receiving a ‘Cubs Winter Aviator Hat’. One promo that really stands out will be a ‘Wrigley Field Football’ that will be available for the first 10,000 fans who attend the May 1 contest against the Milwaukee Brewers.

With a potential playoff berth on the line, the Cubs will close out their 2015 home stand on a divisional battle with the Cardinals, Brewers, and Pirates from Friday Sept. 18-27 before ending the regular season on the road.
