Cubs get OK to boost attendance to 60%

(AP) - The Chicago Cubs have been given the go-ahead to host up to 60% of Wrigley Field’s capacity when they begin a three-game series against the Cincinnati Reds on May 28.

That translates to an attendance of just under 25,000. Single-game tickets go on sale Tuesday to the general public on a first-come, first-served basis in seating pods of up to six people. There will be a minimum of one open seat between pods within the same row.

Fans also can secure tickets for that series through a presale program by registering for random drawings to win a chance to purchase tickets. Winners will be able to purchase a limited number of tickets. The deadline to register is Friday.

State and city officials are requiring a designated area specifically for fully vaccinated fans at Wrigley for a four-game series against the Washington Nationals that begins Monday. Those who purchase tickets will be required to present proof of vaccination and a photo ID.

The Cubs’ health and safety protocols enacted at the start of the regular season will remain in place until further notice.
