In celebration of Wrigley Field’s milestone, the team has introduced a section of MasterCard Century Seats with tickets priced at $19.14 before tax for every game of the season.

Following Opening Week, Cubs fans will be treated to a variety of elements to celebrate 10 decades during 10 unique homestands at Wrigley Field. These festivities include historic bobblehead giveaways on the first Friday of each homestand to honor key individuals or events from the corresponding decade; “Throwback Sunday” games on the first Sunday of each homestand when the Cubs and many visiting teams will wear throwback uniforms; retro toy promotional giveaways to children 13-and-under on those same Sundays; a dedicated “Decades Diner” with rotating food and beverage options; plus commemorative ballpark décor, guests and game entertainment.
While the entire season is dedicated to celebrating 100 years of Wrigley Field, the actual 100th birthday is April 23. On that date, the Cubs will host the Diamondbacks a century after the Chicago Federals opened then-Weeghman Park against the Kansas City Packers. Both teams will wear commemorative uniforms and the first 30,000 fans receive a replica 1914 Chi-Feds jersey. Like any good birthday party, Wrigley Field’s celebration will feature special guests, gifts, cake, entertainment and even a serenade to the tune of “Happy Birthday.”
