The South Bend Cubs will host four Chicago Cubs Watch Parties at Four Winds Field this season. The first event will be held this coming Friday, July 31, as the Chicago Cubs face the Pittsburgh Pirates. Gates open at 7:00 p.m. with first pitch scheduled for 8:15 p.m. Additional dates to be announced in the coming weeks.

In conjunction with Marquee Sports Network, the games will be shown on the video board. General admission tickets are $15, and fans can sit in the seating bowl or in the outfield grass. Fans will be allowed to bring blankets for the field, but umbrellas and lawn chairs are prohibited. Only 1,500 tickets will be available for this event and available by clicking here.

The South Bend Cubs will also offer a special V.I.P. package. The Outdoor Suite package allows for six people to watch the movie from one of the outdoor suites and includes a voucher for each guest to receive a hot dog or burger, bag of chips, and soda. The package also includes two vouchers good for a tub of popcorn. Food vouchers must be redeemed at the concession stands. Table service will not be provided. Only six suites will be available and can be purchased by clicking here.

Like movie night, two concession stands will be open as well as two Steakadelphia stands. There will be multiple beer stands open including the Miller Lite Tiki Hut. The Cubs Den Team Store will be open with a special Cubs sale and the splash pad will be on.

This event will follow the State of Indiana’s Phase 4.5 guidelines policies set by the CDC. Fans will be asked to keep at least six feet away from guests they do not know. Hand sanitizers will also be placed throughout the concourse. Those attending will be expected to abide by the Governor’s executive order requiring all Hoosiers to wear a face mask when in public spaces (indoor and outdoor) when 6 feet of physical distance cannot be maintained, including when standing in line for concessions, drinks, bathrooms, or where people congregate.

Exceptions to this rule are those with a medical condition that prevents them from safely wearing a mask and any child 2 and younger. Once individuals are back within their family unit, they can remove the mask.


  1. So, there can be no fans at Major League parks, but we can gather at the Minor League parks to cheer on the Majors, and you wonder why we question the validity of the Covid threat?
