CHICAGO — The Chicago Cubs have announced details for fans seeking the opportunity to purchase single game tickets to potential postseason games at Wrigley Field. Beginning today at noon until Tuesday, September 19, at noon, fans can register for a random drawing to win a chance to purchase single game postseason tickets for a potential Wild Card Game and National League Division Series.* Registration cut-off times for future potential rounds are available at www.cubs.com/postseason.
New this year, fans will be required to complete the online form and submit a one-time refundable deposit of $50 in an effort to verify authenticity of each entry and the genuine interest to attend postseason games. The $50 deposit may be applied to the ticket purchase, if applicable, or will be refunded at the conclusion of the postseason.
Fans who register for the online ticket opportunity will be notified via email if they have been selected for a chance to purchase. Those who are randomly selected from all eligible registrants will have a one-time chance to purchase a maximum of four tickets, pending availability, among multiple available games. Tickets will be available for purchase on a first-come, first-served basis.
All registered fans who are not selected or do not complete a purchase for early postseason contests will remain eligible for selection if the Cubs advance to subsequent rounds. Fans may only purchase tickets once during the postseason. Being selected in a drawing does not guarantee the opportunity to purchase tickets to a postseason game.
"With fall baseball again within our reach, we will continue to offer our successful online registration and random drawing process to ensure as many Cubs fans as possible have the opportunity to purchase postseason tickets," said Cubs Senior Vice President of Sales and Marketing Colin Faulkner. "We have implemented a new refundable deposit this year as a safeguard to ensure those who register are Cubs fans wishing to attend these sought-after games. Given the tremendous demand, we encourage fans to register today and purchase quickly if their name is selected."
The postseason single game ticket on-sale date and pricing will be announced following the September 19 registration deadline for Wild Card Game and National League Division Series tickets. Single game ticket buyers are encouraged to pay with Mastercard, the preferred credit card of the Chicago Cubs. Fans may visit www.cubs.com/postseason for more information about potential single game postseason ticket sales or call the Chicago Cubs Fan Services team at 800-THE-CUBS with any questions.
*Registration is open to legal residents of the 50 United States who are 18 years of age or older at the time of entry. Void where prohibited; additional exclusions apply. Registrations from past Postseason Ticket Purchase Opportunities do not carry over to the 2017 Postseason Ticket Purchase Opportunity. Full terms and conditions are available at www.cubs.com/postseason.
