The left field bleachers include a new combined standing/seating section called “The Well,” designed to accommodate 15-50 fans. The Well is the first two rows of bleachers above the left field wall, a standing-room only section, for groups of 15 to 50 fans. Tickets for The Well generally cost about 20 percent more than the average price.
Also debuting Monday is the Left Field Porch, a mix of standing room and bleacher seating for groups up to 100 people underneath the new left field video board.READ MORE: Video From Police Shooting That Killed Adam Toledo To Be Released On Thursday, COPA Says
Food and beverage packages will be available for the new areas, and the Cubs hope corporation groups and bachelor parties take advantage of the new sections.
The renovated bleachers also have more concessions and wider walkways.
