WRIGLEYVILLE — For the third straight season, the Cubs are going to the playoffs. So how can you join them?
People have already started selling their National League Division Series Game 3 tickets on StubHub, with the prices ranging from $149 for a standing-room only ticket to $1,500 for a box seat. That Oct. 6 game is the first one at Wrigley Field. The first two are in Washington, D.C.
The chance has passed to enter into a drawing to purchase single tickets to NLDS games, but fans are still able to register for a chance to purchase tickets to potential National League Championship Series and World Series games.
Anyone who registers online before noon on Oct. 5 will be entered into a random drawing to purchase single tickets to a potential NLCS game. The deadline for registering for the drawing to purchase World Series tickets is noon on Oct. 16. You must be 18 to register.
This year, registrants will need to complete an online form and submit a one-time refundable deposit of $50. This deposit can be applied to the ticket purchase; otherwise, it will be refunded at the end of the postseason.
Anyone selected in the drawing will be notified via email, and they will have a one-time chance to purchase up to four tickets to available games.
All registered fans who are not selected or do not complete a purchase for the NLDS or NLCS will remain eligible for selection if the Cubs advance to the World Series. Winners of the drawings can only purchase tickets once during the postseason.
The postseason single-game ticket sale date and pricing will be communicated directly to drawing winners via email.
The Cubs and Wrigley Field are 95 percent owned by an entity controlled by a trust established for the benefit of the family of Joe Ricketts, owner and CEO of DNAinfo.com. Joe Ricketts has no direct involvement in the management of the iconic team.
