Known for its unique traditions and charm, Wrigley Field is an integral piece of the history and future of America’s pastime. To preserve its charm and ensure its viability for years to come, the team began a multi-year restoration and modernization project, coined the 1060 Project, in 2014. A part of the project included introducing game-changing premier experiences to Wrigley Field focused on four themes: tradition, beauty, charm, and luxury. The mission was for Wrigley Field to remain the best place to catch a baseball game and to keep its historic, majestic charm while also offering seats with prime views and access to exclusive clubs and first-class amenities. The new premier experiences allow fans to enjoy Cubs baseball and America’s most majestic ballpark in a whole new way.
Wrigley Field’s suites have always been part of the ballpark’s tradition, beauty, and charm. Each private suite has allowed fans to experience a mix of outdoor seating and private indoor seating in a space they could call their own on gameday. And now, fans in suites can add luxury to their ballpark experiences. Expanded and upgraded with premium amenities, Wrigley Field’s suites, designed with Populous, feature brick walls with a modernized touch to meet the grandeur of the Friendly Confines.
When a fan enters the new enclosed, climate-controlled suite corridor, their eyes focus on the diverse, historic Cubs logos frosted on the entry doors of each suite and the colorful framed prints covering the walls, including vintage scorecard replicas with the artwork of Otis Shepard, a graphic artist who worked for the Wrigley gum company and the Cubs for 30 years.
Each suite features customized artwork, interior finishes, and furniture to fit the style of its guests, including hand-painted sponsor or Cubs logos on the brick, suite numbers, and signage inspired by Wrigley Field’s mechanical scoreboard. Outdoor drink rails, large TV screens, and all-new appliances give the suites a refreshed feel while continuing to bring people together. A retractable glass wall offers a climate-controlled setting or one that welcomes the warm Chicago summer air and sounds of cheers roaring through the ballpark.
Suite holders have an expanded menu of food and beverage offerings. From healthy salads to ballpark fan favorites and delectable desserts, there is something for everyone to enjoy. Wrigley Field’s suites offer a truly VIP experience for entertaining clients, employees, and guests in style in an intimate environment without missing a second of the action on the field.
