Northwestern and the Chicago Cubs have entered into a partnership that will result in the university staging athletic events for many of the school’s 19 varsity programs at Wrigley Field over the next several years, the two sides announced Tuesday.
The events will include five football games, with the dates still pending while the field completes its ongoing restoration project.
Northwestern baseball begins there this year. They could play football there as soon as 2014.
