New Study Reveals the Cheapest Time to Buy Chicago Cubs Tickets
Looking to save some dough while checking out a team that is in the middle of a heated playoff battle?
I know I am and boy would it be nice to save a few dollars the next time I head to Wrigley Field.
Truth is, I didn't even know the Cubs had it in them to produce a competitive team in 2023, yet here we are.
It's late August and the Cubs are currently in the thick of it. Just a few games back of the division-leading Milwaukee Brewers and holding on to a wild card slot.
If you're a Cubs fan that's all you can ask for. Sure the team spent money this season but did you really think you'd be seeing playoff baseball? If you did, good for you but did you know that you can save some serious cash on the next Cubs game you're planning on seeing live and in person?
The best time to buy baseball tickets is the day of the game. Tickets are 25% cheaper on game day on average versus one week prior. And compared to average ticket prices three months prior, game day tickets cost only about half as much.
Makes sense right? It's better for ticket sellers to get rid of tickets at a discount and eat a bit of the cost as opposed to taking a loss on the entire thing.
So the savings get passed on to you. The only thing the deep discount doesn't take into consideration is where you'll be sitting. If you're picky like me, you may end up continuing to pay the premium.
Either way, whatever the cost, it's nice to see the Cubs competitive again, and that's something you can't put a price on.
