Chicago Cubs Tickets Sales and Attendance Hopes to Rebound in 2012

Chicago Cubs Starlin CastroGetting a ticket to see the Chicago Cubs play at historic Wrigley Field is typically not an easy task.  The Cubs regularly sell out the ballpark and games against rivals such as the Chicago White Sox and St. Louis Cardinals demand premium dollar in the secondary ticket market.  However, last year you couldn’t pay fans to head down to the “Friendly Confines”.  Although the Cubs sold over 3 million tickets (> 37,000 per game) by mid-summer Wrigley Field was half empty during most games.

However, there is hope for Cubs fans and ticket brokers alike as we head into the 2012 season.  The Chicago Cubs have made some major moves this off season – most notably the hiring of former Boston Red Sox GM Theo Epstein and Jed Hoyer.  Fans are hoping that Theo can help the Cubs break their 103 year World Series drought much like he helped Boston.  It might not happen this year as the Cubs are clearly in a rebuilding mode but they are already starting to acquire pieces of a championship puzzle and clearing out some bad seeds.  Former faces of the organization Aramis Ramirez (signed with the Brewers) and Carlos Zambrano (traded to the Miami Marlins for Chris Volstad) are gone and in are of David DeJesus, Ian Stewart, Reed Johnson, Travis Wood, and intriguing 1st base prospect Anthony Rizzo.

The Cubs opening day lineup likely isn’t going to instill fear in any opponent but it is clear a long term plan is in place.  All-star shortstop Starlin Castro is clearly the new face of the franchise and will be joined by C Geovany Soto, 2B Darwin Barney, 3B Ian Stewart, and likely Bryan 1B LaHair in the infield.  The outfield, as it stands now will feature Alfonso Soriano in right field, Marlon Byrd in center, and a platoon of David DeJesus and Reed Johnson in right.  The rotation will consist of Matt Garza, Ryan Dempster, Travis Wood, Chris Volstad, and Randy Wells/Casey Coleman.  Although the Cubs didn’t go after any of the marque free agents (Puljols, Fielder, Jose Reyes, etc.), Cub fans are a loyal bunch and as long as things are headed in the right direct they will support their team.

So while the Cubs may not be all that good in 2012, there is plenty of buzz surrounding the franchise and that is usually good for ticket sales. Below is a list of 2012 Chicago Cubs games that should generate plenty of fan interest.

2012 Chicago Cubs Schedule Highlights

4/5/2012 Chicago Cubs vs Washington Nationals (Opening Day)
4/23 to 4/25/2012 Chicago Cubs vs St. Louis Cardinals
5/18 to 5/20/2012 Chicago Cubs vs Chicago White Sox

9/21 to 9/23/2012 Chicago Cubs vs St. Louis Cardinals

Top Weekend Events August 19-21

Hello Wednesday!

First and foremost, I’d like to extend my condolences to the families affected by the collapsed stage at the Sugarland show at the Indiana State Fair.  You’re in our thoughts!

Not to be totally glossed over, but there do seem to be a few other state fair concerts on the list for this week.  While last week’s concert was surely a tragedy, it was a sad, but extremely rare occurrence.  Train and Lady Antebellum will both be performing at the Iowa and Indiana State Fairs respectively.

Other county music stars will be hitting the stage this weekend with huge fan interest.  Kenny Chesney and Zac Brown Band are high again on the list with their summery sound.  Ms. Taylor Swift is once again on the list as well with her Speak Now tour which continues and will continue to draw a lot of interest.  Rascal Flatts, while always popular, seems to be getting even more popular these days.

Justin Beiber’s better half, Selena Gomez, takes the top spot for the weekend.   Selena Gomez and The Scene (the rest of her band) recently took home accolades from the RIAA for their song “Who Says” which went platinum.  The girl can sing!  Her days on Disney’s the Wizards of Wavery Place, dating the Bieb as well as her throngs of pre-tween fans can’t hurt either.

Old rivals the Chicago Cubs vs. the St. Louis Cardinals face off again this weekend.  Both teams have die-hard loyal fans, but sadly, the Cardinals have more World Series wins over the Cubbies.

And finally, once again the MLS has made another appearance on the top weekend events list.  The Houston Dynamo Soccer team will take on the Real Salt Lake.  Keep your eye out for MLS games!
