SCOTTSDALE, Arizona — We stand this morning at a very different spot in Cubs history than we did a year ago.
The Cubs were defending World Series champions then. Season ticket prices had been raised considerably, and single-game prices also reflected that rise.
Today, the Cubs are a team looking like they are strong World Series contenders, but season-ticket prices went down for many, and I would expect single-game prices to follow that lead. Will that result in more ticket sales this year?
The virtual waiting room should be open at the time of this post, 9:30 a.m. CT, and sales begin 30 minutes later. The Cubs remind you that in order to buy tickets online, you will need a valid cubs.com account, and they encouraged you to sign up for one (if you don’t already have one) before the sale begins.
You can also buy tickets by phone today by calling 1-800-THE-CUBS (1-800-843-2827).
The Cubs also remind you that there is a four-ticket purchase limit for Diamond and Marquee games per household, credit card or email address, and a 14-ticket limit for all other games. There is a maximum of 40 total tickets per order.
There won’t be any tickets sold at Wrigley Field until Monday, February 26, when the ticket windows near the bleacher entrance on Waveland will open at 8 a.m. Those windows will be open from 8 a.m. to 6 p.m. Monday through Friday and 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. on Saturdays and Sundays prior to the Cubs home opener.
