Whether you're a visitor of the Windy City, or a resident of Chicago's North Side, a fun way to spend a sunny summer afternoon is taking in a Chicago Cubs (of the NL Central) baseball game at historic Wrigley Field. The Cubs are among baseball's oldest teams, having played their first game in 1870 and becoming a professional organization some six years later. They haven't won a World Series in more than 100 years (103 as of this year, to be exact), but are still an MLB fan favorite, not only within the Chicago area, but across the nation as well. In fact, the Cubs currently suffer from the so-called "Curse of the Billy Goat," a name they were awarded in 1945 when a local bar owner was forced to leave a World Series Cubs game because he brought his pet goat, who, well, smelled really, really bad. The outraged fan blasted the Cubs, saying they would never win again.
Because Wrigley Field is one of the smallest active - and most beautiful - ballparks in baseball (capacity: 41,159), Cubs tickets are typically in high demand every season, with this year being no exception. So how can you go about to buy Cubs tickets? There are several avenues, but typically Chicago Cubs tickets can't be purchased at the box office on the day of the game - they're in too high of a demand. Try searching for cheap Cubs tickets on our site for a ticket to all 162 games of the season.
Wrigley Field also offers different ways to enjoy a game - aside from the bleacher and outfield seats, fans can purchase Cubs rooftop tickets. Your best bet, for a rooftop seat or other Cubs tickets 2012 where location and quality are important, might be our site. We offer Cubs tickets for sale on all different price scales, perfect for a North Side regular who wants to get to a few games each year or a baseball fan from elsewhere with the goal of attending a Cubs game on the "bucket list." Attending a Cubs game is a baseball experience, from singing the traditional "Take Me Out to the Ballgame" at the seventh-inning stretch to admiring the beauty of Wrigley Field's ivy-covered walls. For an in-game experience like none other, a Cubs game from Wrigley's bleachers, where the fans are rude, loyal and ruthless, is a must.
As previously mentioned, the Cubs haven't won a World Series Championship in more than 100 years - and haven't been a relevant threat to win one in about a decade - but still have a storied history and buzz about them that keeps fans clamoring to the ballpark, season after season, including this year. The "C" worn on the baseball caps is recognized by sports fans across North America.
What's more, this year marks a season of change for the "Cubbies," with the organization having hired multi-World Series winning general manager Theo Epstein, who broke the "curse" of the Boston Red Sox previously. While this change in management hasn't yet been evident on the baseball field in terms of wins, it's restored enough optimism in an already highly loyal fan base to keep Cubs tickets a hot seller every summer, from subs spring training tickets to regular season game tickets.
Who knows - this year's game you go to could be the season (or at least the start of something special) where the Cubs finally kick their World Series jinx and return to baseball prominence. But for now, there's the experience of watching a Chicago Cubs game at Wrigley Field, an experience that is next to unbeatable.
