CHICAGO – The Chicago Cubs today issued the following statement.

We are thrilled the Supreme Court of the United States today affirmed the Cubs’ right to renovate and improve Wrigley Field. In declining to review the case brought by rooftop owners, the Supreme Court let stand previous court decisions and upheld the legal position the Cubs have advocated for more than a decade.

The opposition of rooftop owners and local aldermen to Wrigley Field renovations has unfortunately cost the team time and energy to refute allegations we understood from the beginning were meritless.

We thank our fans who stood with us in the process. The Cubs have the greatest fans in baseball and we hope to continue to reward their dedication by standing for what we believe is right: winning baseball, preserving and improving Wrigley Field and being a good neighbor. While it is unfortunate we have to defend challenges like this from those who have benefitted from Cubs baseball, we will continue to do so and will always put the history, tradition and the future of the team and our fans first.
