Home of the Chicago Cubs
Source: Stadium Scene Staff
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.
Like almost all US and Canadian Stadiums, you will need to enter through a metal detector before entering the stadium. Be sure to give yourself extra time and don't bring any weapons or devices that could be seen as a weapon inside. Pat down searches may be required.
Bags larger than 16" x 16" x 8" are prohibited. All bags are subject to search.
Note: Bag and security policy listed above are for typical sporting events. Special events, concerts, and other situations may result in variation to the policy. Please check event website for any changes or variation.
Parking is not easy to find at Wrigley Field, unless you are a season ticket holder with a parking pass. For night and weekend games, free parking and a shuttle bus are available at 3900 N. Rockwell St. Alternatively, many private residences and local business offer parking for a fee that varies by proximity to the stadium, the opponent, the day (weekends are typically more expensive than weekdays), and the time of year.
