2/6 Wildcats and Cubs
In case you missed it, Northwestern and the Cubs have announced a partnership that will showcase the Wildcats athletic programs at Wrigley Field. As part of the partnership, Wrigley will potentially serve as a home venue for many of Northwestern’s 19 varsity programs over the coming years. Two sports programs have tentatively set dates: On April 20, Northwestern baseball will host the Michigan Wolverines in a Big Ten matchup. In 2014, the Wildcats women’s lacrosse team, winner of seven of the last eight NCAA championships, will play regional rival Notre Dame.
The dates for the five Wildcats football games are pending because of scheduling of the Wrigley restoration project. Details on other game dates, opponents and ticket information for all Northwestern athletic events at Wrigley Field will be provided later.
