What will attending a Cubs game be like in 2021?
We learned this week that both the Cubs and White Sox will host fans at 20 percent capacity on Opening Day next month. For both teams, it’ll mark the first time fans have been in the stands since 2019.
The Cubs laid out what plans are in place to keep everyone safe at the Friendly Confines to open the season and it’s widely expected the number of fans will increase as vaccination efforts pick up momentum in Chicago and across the state.
Now, does anyone like going and sitting in the sun wearing a mask? Of course not. But if it allows us to get back to the greatest ballpark in the game and cheer on our team, it’s a small price to pay. Speaking of which, seeing what ticket prices come in at will be a major focal point, especially early in the year.
The rooftops surrounding Wrigley are tied to the restaurant and bar restrictions in the city, meaning, as things currently stand, they’ll open up on April 1 at 50 percent capacity. So, if nothing else, Cubs fans will have options when it comes to seeing live baseball in 2021.
