Cubs Tickets on Sale Friday

2006_02_sports_wrigleyfieldseatingchart.jpgYou won't be imagining things if some of your co-workers are out on Friday ... or if they keep running over to that empty cube over by Marketing. They, like countless others across the city, are simply trying to score those coveted Cubs tickets. That's right — single-game tickets for the Cubs 2007 home games go on sale Friday morning, at 10:00 a.m. CST.

Once again, the Cubs will be using the "virtual waiting room" set-up. The waiting room will open to aspiring ticket buyers at 9:30 a.m. People will be selected randomly to purchase tickets.

In order to purchase, people must set up an account ahead of time. If you forget, don't say we didn't warn you!

As in the past, there are ticket limits:

  • There will be a limit of six tickets per game.
  • Internet customers will be limited to one game per transaction of up to six (6) tickets.
  • Internet customers will be limited to a maximum of forty-two (42) tickets for the weekend.

Tickets can be purchased in-person at the Wrigley Field box office, starting at 8:00am. The Cubs won't allow camping out for tickets; instead, you'll need a numbered bracelet that can be picked up until 10:00 p.m. tonight. A random number will determine the order that tickets will be sold, chosen about 6:00 a.m. tomorrow and announced over WGN Radio (720-AM). So get your bracelet today, set the clock radio alarm for 6:00 a.m., and if you've got a low number then get the hell out of bed and get over to Wrigley!

There's also the order-by-phone option. Starting at 10:00 a.m., phone orders can be made by calling 1-800-THE-CUBS.

May all of our readers get those Cubs-Sox box seats or Cubs-Cards bleacher tickets they covet most....
