To help celebrate 100 years of baseball at Wrigley Field, the Chicago Cubs will host 10 decade-specific homestands and offer unique promotional items, retro food and beverage options, throwback uniforms and entertainment this season.

Single-game tickets go on sale at 10 a.m. March 7, and by phone at 800-THE-CUBS (800-843-2827). Fans also may participate in the MasterCard Pre-sale starting Tuesday, March 4, at 10 a.m., using a MasterCard for single-game tickets at a 15 percent premium, while fans using other forms of payment may purchase tickets at a 20 percent premium.

The Cub will no longer host a two-hour on-sale event at Wrigley Field before online and phone sales. The Wrigley Field Ticket Windows will open March 8 at 9 a.m.

In celebration of Wrigley Field's milestone, the team has introduced a section of MasterCard Century Seats with tickets priced at $19.14 before tax for every game of the season. This 350-seat section is located in the Upper Deck Box level in left field. These tickets must be purchased with a MasterCard and are available at or 800-THE-CUBS with no service or delivery fees.

"We're excited to host the 'Party of the Century' at Wrigley Field this year while honoring our historic ballpark," said Cubs Vice President of Sales and Service Colin Faulkner. "Our fans will notice a unique look and feel when they attend each homestand as we recognize a century of events, milestones, people and teams who play a significant role in Wrigley Field's iconic history."

To celebrate 10 decades during 10 unique homestands at Wrigley Field, the festivities include historic bobblehead giveaways on the first Friday of each homestand to honor key individuals or events from the corresponding decade; "Throwback Sunday" games on the first Sunday of each homestand when the Cubs and many visiting teams will wear throwback uniforms; retro toy promotional giveaways to children 13-and-under on those same Sundays; a dedicated "Decades Diner" with rotating food and beverage options; plus commemorative ballpark décor, guests and game entertainment.
