New concourses, bathrooms, seating and dining options will allow fans to avoid long waits and to enjoy more of the game.
Whether catching fly balls in the bleachers or grabbing autographs from players during pregame warmups, Cubs fans always have enjoyed Wrigley Field's unique experiences. Each year, millions of people visit this iconic ballpark to enjoy America's pastime and share Wrigley Field's traditions. However, this matchless experience isn't guaranteed for future generations if improvements are not made soon.
The restoration and improvement of Wrigley Field gives fans an even better opportunity to experience the incredible atmosphere of the ballpark as there will be more ability to roam concourses, upgraded seating and a larger variety of concessions and additional restrooms.
The plan also includes enhancements to premium seating areas in the Friendly Confines with the addition of four new ticketed premier clubs: the American Airlines 1914 Club (located behind home plate), the Maker's Mark Barrel Room (located just beyond the visitors' dugout), The W Club (located on the third-base side) and the Catalina Club (located behind home plate in the upper level). Each of these clubs will provide its members with a space separate from their seat, where they can experience a variety of special services and amenities before, during and after each game.
In addition, the suite level will be improved and expanded to meet the grandeur of the Friendly Confines. The modernized suites will feature a retractable glass wall, full height refrigerator, under-counter induction warmers, outdoor drink rail, big screen TVs and much more. A new enclosed, climate-controlled walkway also will be added throughout the suite level to provide guests a more comfortable walk to and from suites.
Simply put, the 1060 Project will improve the guest experience and keep millions of Cubs fans coming back to Wrigley Field every year.
The bottom line on fan experience
The improvements to Wrigley Field will preserve the ballpark for generations to come by ensuring the park remains a friendly, enjoyable place to watch the Cubs. The project will maintain the historic and unique features that make Wrigley Field special. The Cubs are earnest about their responsibility to restore and improve Wrigley Field for the next generation of baseball fans.
