Want To Go To The Cubs Home Opener? Hope You’ve Been Saving
If you want the first look at the defending World Series champs at home, you're going to pay for it.
FoxBusiness - Tickets to the Cubs' home opener against the Los Angeles Dodgers on April 10 - their first home game since winning the 2016 World Series - have an average asking price of $443 on TicketIQ, a secondary market ticket aggregator. That total is a 147% increase compared to Chicago's first home game one year ago. The cheapest available seat is listed at $116
This shouldn't come as a surprise to anyone. Cubs tickets were some of the highest in the league already and coming off your first World Series in 108 years is probably going to inflate them even more.
The article suggests that this might be a more affordable way for fans to be part of history who couldn't afford the thousands of dollars the team's 2016 playoff run was demanding.
Affordable? Maybe. More affordable? Definitely. I can think of better ways to spend 400 dollars. Does that disqualify me from super fan status? If it does I'll get over it. Either way it's going to be a zoo of humanity in Wrigley all season.
It's good to be a Cubs fan.
P.S. Love the fact that the second highest opening day ticket is for St. Louis. Who do the Cardinals open up with? The Cubs of course. It's gonna be great seeing Busch Stadium half filled with blue jerseys.
