Tickets on sale for Chicago Cubs home games, Opening Day Friday

Tickets available for Cubs home games, opener originally appeared on NBC Sports Chicago

Chicago Cubs fans can now buy tickets to newly-scheduled home games for the 2022 season.

The team released tickets for regular season home games at 10 a.m. Friday.

The Cubs are set to open their season on April 7 at home against the Brewers.

Following the season-opening, four-game series against the Brewers, the Cubs head out on a six-game trip before returning to Chicago for seven games against Tampa Bay April 18-20 and Pittsburgh April 21-24.

The 2022 schedule is also highlighted by annual Crosstown Classic, which features a pair of two-game series from May 3-4 at Wrigley Field.

Earlier this month, MLB owners and the players’ association agreed to a new collective bargaining agreement, bringing an end to a 99-day lockout that began on Dec. 2.

It was the second-longest work stoppage in MLB history.

Despite MLB-imposed deadlines on Feb. 28 and March 9 to salvage a full season, no games will be missed in 2022. Each team will play their usual 162-game slate, with Opening Day set for April 7 – exactly one week after its originally scheduled date of March 31.

The end of the season will be extended three extra days, and nine-inning doubleheaders will be played to make up for lost time. Players will also receive their full salaries in 2022.
