NEWS: Wrigley’s Rooftops Will Be Open

The rooftops will have fans, whether Wrigley Field hosts fans in 2020 or not.

Today, Crane Kenney provided some welcoming news to Cubs fans as he announced today on 670 The Score, the Wrigley Rooftops will be open for games when baseball resumes play at the end of July.

This news gives Cubs fans something they can look forward to. Currently, the state and local battle between Governor Pritzker and Mayor Lightfoot indicates they are not on the same page about having fans in the stands on the North and South side. Pritzker says that 20% capacity for games is a likely scenario, but Lightfoot has indicated no fans in the stands at either ballpark is a real possibility.

However, this is a bit of a work around for the Cubs. The rooftops are not in the ballpark, and since they own the rooftops now, they can open the rooftops at their discretion.

Even if Mayor Lightfoot has her way, Cubs fans can still enjoy a game from the iconic rooftops at Wrigley Field this season. Both teams still seem to be game planning for fans at the games, even if only 20% capacity, but this is certainly a start toward that ultimate end goal.
