All proceeds benefit Cubs Charities.


Scoreboard message requests must be submitted no later than one business day before a game. Please call 773-404-4069 if the game takes place in less than three business days or if you would like to avoid a convenience charge.


Only 20 scoreboard messages are available per game, so be sure to order yours soon! Available space fills up quickly.


Your message will be displayed on Wrigley Field's landmark center field scoreboard during the middle of the 5th inning.


We will make every effort to take each photo during the live display of the scoreboard message. In the event of technical or other difficulties, we reserve the right to recreate the photo at a later date.


The Cubs reserve the right to approve and edit any message. Messages which contain obscene or offensive content or include foul language will not be accepted. Marketing messages are not permitted.


Messages may be one line containing 40 characters or less, including spaces and punctuation.


There are no refunds for scoreboard messages. If your game is rescheduled, the message will be played during the make-up game.
