You won't be going to "Cubs Park" for spring games this year, as the Cubs signed a long-term naming rights deal with the Sloan Valve Co. to call the place "Sloan Park."
Sloan Park tickets go on sale this Saturday, January 10, at 11 a.m. CT (the box office opens at the same time, 10 a.m. Arizona time).
“Following a successful first year in our new Spring Training home and a busy offseason, we’re very excited to host our second season of Spring Training games at Sloan Park,” said Justin Piper, general manager, Spring Training Business Operations. “Cubs fans showed their overwhelming support of the team by setting a Cactus League season attendance record last year. With similar crowds expected this season, we encourage fans to purchase their tickets early once again.”
You can also buy tickets at the same time at the usual online outlets via cubs.com and at 1-800-THE-CUBS. I'd expect, with buzz around the team after the signing of Jon Lester and hiring of Joe Maddon as manager, tickets will be in high demand. 10 of the 15 home games last year were sellouts and the Cubs might sell out the entire season given higher expectations and excitement.
The first spring game is Thursday, March 5, against the Athletics at... Sloan Park.
