After the Chicago Cubs finally won the World Series in 2016, fans paid the price.
Tickets last season increased an average of 19.5 percent this past season. In 2015, the average ticket price increased by 10 percent.
For 2018, however, the Cubs have announced a much smaller average bump for season-ticket holders -- less than 1 percent.
"We're really excited to be talking about 2018 season tickets off the back of our third straight NLCS appearance," said Cale Vennum, the Cubs VP of ticketing. "There continues to be incredible demand for Cubs tickets at Wrigley Field. For the 2018 season, we are largely maintaining our pricing levels from 2017."
According to the Cubs, season-ticket prices for the terrace reserved preferred section will increase 9 percent.
Season-ticket prices in the bleachers will see the largest price decrease, 5.6 percent. Rates for field boxes and terrace boxes are also going down.
Single-game tickets for Cubs game go on sale Feb. 23.
"There is still tremendous demand," Vennum said. "We drew just under 3.2 million last year, seventh highest in history. There are over 118,000 people on the waiting list. People are really excited about Cubs baseball, they're excited about the young core we have that is getting ready for the 2018 season."
