Cubs single-game tickets go on sale next Friday

It will be interesting to see how big — or small — demand is this year.

Cubs tickets for the 2020 season will go on sale Friday, February 21 at 10 a.m. CT. You can buy them online at or by calling 800-THE-CUBS (800-843-2827). As was the case last year, tickets will be delivered exclusively through the free MLB Ballpark app.

Beginning at 9:30 a.m. CT on the 21st, a virtual waiting room will begin accepting customers. At 10 a.m. CT, people will be randomly selected from the virtual waiting room to begin purchasing tickets. All internet customers will need a valid account. The Cubs encourage you to register for an account prior to the sale if you don’t already have one.

As has been the case in previous years, there will be a presale sponsored by Mastercard for premiums above face value. That presale begins Tuesday, February 18 at noon CT and goes through Wednesday, February 19 at 11:59 p.m. CT. In that sale you can buy tickets at 15 percent above face value with a Mastercard or 20 percent value using other forms of payment. The Cubs say that restrictions apply and you can go to for full details.

There will likely be a presale for season-ticket holders before February 21, but I have received no details on that yet.

For the general sale on February 21, there is a four-ticket purchase limit for Diamond games per household, credit card or email address, a 14-ticket limit for all other games and a maximum of 40 total tickets per order. For more information, contact the Chicago Cubs Ticket Office at 800-THE-CUBS (800-843-2827).

About three weeks ago I posted a preliminary Cubs promotional schedule here. Some items have been added to that and you can find those at

Lastly, if you want to buy tickets in person, the Wrigley Field Ticket Office near the main entrance at Clark & Addison will open Monday, February 24 at 8 a.m. CT. The Wrigley Field Ticket Office will be open from 8 a.m. to 6 p.m. CT Monday through Friday and 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. CT Saturdays and Sundays prior to Opening Day.
