Want to see the Chicago Cubs this season without dropping a ton of money? You may be in luck.

The Cubs will offer 60 tickets to every 2018 home game this season for just $10. But there’s a catch — the tickets are only available through an online lottery.

“With the team’s continued success, Cubs tickets have become harder than ever to get,” team business president Crane Kenney said in a statement. “(This) program helps address the cost and limited availability of Cubs tickets.”


The lottery tickets are significantly cheaper than market value. A pair of tickets in the terrace reserved section of Wrigley Field — where the lottery tickets are — range anywhere from $48 to $101 each for the Cubs’ home opener on Monday against the Pittsburgh Pirates, according to Vivid Seats.

Actually getting your hands on the special tickets, though, likely won’t be easy. Lottery registration — which can be accessed here — opens 48 hours before each game and closes 24 hours before first pitch. Fans who are selected will be notified at least 12 hours before the game, and can purchase up to four tickets. There is no fee to enter.

So good luck. You’ll need it if you’re going to scoop up these tickets to see one of the better teams in the league play in one of the more iconic stadiums in the country.

But hey, it would definitely be worth it.
