Northwestern to Host Football Games at Wrigley Field

Northwestern University and the Chicago Cubs announced an agreement Tuesday that will result in the university hosting athletic events for many of its 19 varsity programs at Wrigley Field, including five football games, USA Today reported

The Cubs entered into a five-year marketing agreement with Northwestern’s athletic department that goes through 2017, game dates have yet to be scheduled depending on the Wildcats’ football schedules and the planned Wrigley Field renovation project, Crain’s Chicago Business reported.
