The Cubs announced details for purchasing single-game tickets for the 2014 season, the 100th anniversary of Wrigley Field. This season, the Friendly Confines will host a year-long celebration to honor the classic stadium. Along with Cubs baseball, guests will enjoy unique promotional items, retro food and beverage options, throwback uniforms and entertainment specific with the time period being celebrated during that homestand.
Single-game tickets go on sale Friday, March 7 at 10 a.m. CST at cubs.com and by phone at 1-800-THE-CUBS. For fans purchasing tickets online, a virtual waiting room will begin accepting customers at 9:30 a.m., and at 10 a.m. customers will be selected from the virtual waiting room to begin purchasing tickets. All internet customers will need valid cubs.com accounts.
Fans can also participate in the MasterCard pre-sale, which begins Tuesday, March 4 at 10 a.m. CST, where fans using a MasterCard can purchase tickets in advance at a 15 percent premium, while fans using other forms of payment may buy tickets at a 20 percent premium.
The team will no longer host a two-hour on-sale event at Wrigley Field prior to online and phone sales, but the Wrigley Field ticket windows will be open Saturday, March 8 at 9 a.m.
To celebrate Wrigley Field’s milestone, the team introduced a section of MasterCard Century Seats, priced at $19.14 for every game this season. The 350-seat section is located in the Upper Deck Box level in left field. These tickets must be purchased with a MasterCard and are available at cubs.com/centuryseats or 1-800-THE-CUBS.
