Football will return to Wrigley Field in November of 2020, Cubs President Crane Kenney told the Tribune, with Northwestern’s hosting multiple Big Ten games the team’s “first priority.”
More intriguing, Kenney said the Cubs “absolutely” intend to begin hosting an annual bowl game.
The bowl would be the first of its kind in the Chicago area, and the timing should be ideal.
By 2020 (actually 2018), fans will be able to eat in new Wrigleyville restaurants such as Big Star and Smoke Daddy, sleep at the boutique Hotel Zachary and revel in a tented plaza that can accommodate crowds of nearly 6,000.
And needless to say, the field area will be expanded to allow for two full end zones.
