Chicago Cubs Tickets

One of the happy consequences of the Boston Red Sox's recent World Championship is that Chicago Cubs fans also see their salvation in the distance. If the Red Sox were able to banish their 86-year specter, every opportunity exists for the "Cubbies" to follow suit and exorcise the demons that have haunted them for nearly 100 years. At least, that's what Cubs fans would have you believe.

The fact is, the Cubs teams of the past five or six years enjoyed just as much talent on a single roster as did the 2004 Red Sox. Unfortunately, talent alone is not the determining factor in who takes home the annual "hardware." The Red Sox were blessed with that intangible chemistry that separates merely great teams from championship teams. But back to the Cubs...

The Future of Cubs Tickets

The Cubs should have few problems selling out Wrigley Field in the coming seasons. The addition of former Red Sox star Nomar Garciaparra as well as Greg Maddux, coupled with the return to form of fireballer Kerry Wood, virtually ensures that tickets will prove a hot commodity for several years. While that's great news for the Cubs' front office, it's less promising for fans who've grown accustomed to picking up four tickets an hour before game time.

It's worth keeping in mind that as the country's third most populous city, Chicago is home to wealthy business people, celebrities, and others who have the means to afford season tickets. You may not be able to find front-row seats for a family of four at Wrigley anytime soon, but with a little effort, you can score affordable tickets from reputable online brokers who carry a healthy inventory. There are only 39,558 seats at Wrigley, however, so the supply is nearly twice as low as it is at baseball's biggest parks.
