Ticket Pricing

Weekend passes to this weekend’s 2017 Cubs Convention are currently not available for sale on the Cubs website, however they are offering a two ticket, two night hotel stay at the Sheraton Grand Hotel Chicago.

Unfortunately the Sheraton Hotel website shows that that package is not available either at this time.

It looks like if you are looking for last minute tickets, resale sites such as StubHub are going to be your only option. StubHub currently has 21 available weekend passes listed for $275 per person.
