Cubs Push Up Deadline For Season Ticket Renewal

CHICAGO (CBS) -- The Cubs have issued a letter to season ticket holders, informing them that the deadline to renew their seats at Wrigley Field has been moved up about a month and a half.

The Chicago Tribune reports the letter came after the Cubs finished their season with a profoundly disappointing 71-91 record. It says the deadline for renewal has been moved from early January to Nov. 16, the Tribune reported.

The letter said a 10 percent payment will be due on Nov. 16 with the renewal form, the Tribune reported. After a relocation event in late November and early December at Wrigley Field, the remaining inventory will be made available to some fans on the waiting list for season tickets, the Tribune reported.

While a general manager will likely be in place by Nov. 16, this will mean fans will have to renew before having any idea of what next year's team will look like, the Tribune pointed out.

The Cubs hope to increase the number of season ticketholders next year, after the team barely drew 3 million this year, and many season ticketholders didn't show up, the newspaper reported.
