Wrigley Field opened in 1914 and became the home of the Chicago Cubs starting in 1916. It is currently the second oldest stadium in Major League Baseball (Fenway Park in Boston, MA).
Over the years, Wrigley has hosted a variety of events including the NFL's Chicago Bears, college football, soccer, and concerts.
Wrigley Field is currently in the middle of a $500 million renovation set to be completed by the 2018 season.
Tours are generally not offered during the offseason due to the renovation of the stadium and the Chicago winters. Otherwise, please visit Wrigley Field Tours for current schedule and rates.
