The Cubs appear headed for a division title, so it’s time to register for your chance to get an opportunity to buy postseason tickets.

This year, there’s a catch. You will be required to complete the online form and submit a one-time refundable deposit of $50. The Cubs say this is an effort to verify the authenticity of each entry and the genuine interest to attend postseason games. The $50 deposit may be applied to the ticket purchase, if you are chosen, or if you aren’t, it will be refunded at the conclusion of the postseason.

The opportunity is open now until Tuesday, September 19, at noon, you can register for a random drawing to win a chance to purchase single game postseason tickets for a potential Wild Card Game and National League Division Series. Registration cut-off times for future potential rounds are available at

The registration opportunity is open only to residents of the United States who are 18 or over at the time of entry.

You will be notified via email if you have been selected for a chance to purchase. Those who are randomly selected from all eligible registrants will have a one-time chance to purchase a maximum of four tickets, pending availability, among multiple available games. Tickets will be available for purchase on a first-come, first-served basis.

All registered fans who are not selected or do not complete a purchase for early postseason contests will remain eligible for selection if the Cubs advance to subsequent rounds, but you can purchase tickets only once during the postseason. A reminder that being selected in a drawing does not guarantee the opportunity to purchase tickets to a postseason game.

“With fall baseball again within our reach, we will continue to offer our successful online registration and random drawing process to ensure as many Cubs fans as possible have the opportunity to purchase postseason tickets,” said Cubs Senior Vice President of Sales and Marketing Colin Faulkner. “We have implemented a new refundable deposit this year as a safeguard to ensure those who register are Cubs fans wishing to attend these sought-after games. Given the tremendous demand, we encourage fans to register today and purchase quickly if their name is selected.”

Good luck!
