With rare exception over at least the last 20 years or so, Cubs single-game tickets have gone on sale the last Friday in February. Of course, that doesn’t mean people are patient about the official announcement or that they’re not geeked about getting their chance at buying them. I remember in the early days of the online waiting rooms taking the day off work and waiting hours for my opportunity to get to a game or two.
Oh, if only I had known then about the secret of how to set the virtual waiting room URL.
Then came the Mastercard® Presale, which is in effect again this season (more details below), for those fans would didn’t want to bathe with the unclean masses.
If you’re hoping to get to either of the first two home games to see the Cubs celebrate the World Series title by raising the banner and getting their rings, be ready to pay a premium. Tickets for those games are going to be limited and you’re probably going to need to go to the secondary market if you’re not one of the first few people in on the presale.
I know ticket brokers can get a bad rap, and I get why that is, but we do have a relationship with TicketLodge that gives Cubs Insider readers a discount. It won’t bring the cost down to face by any means, but it’ll save you enough to pick up a couple beers. If you have to get to one of those big games and aren’t able to buy on the primary market, check out TL and use the code CUBSINSIDER.
For more specifics on how you can try to buy through the Cubs next week, here’s the official press release:
