Northwestern to Keep 6 Football Games A Year in Evanston
In February, the Wildcats and the Chicago Cubs entered into a five-year marketing agreement to host many of NU’s athletic events at Wrigley Field.
Northwestern University recently confirmed that it would keep six football games a year in Evanston, the Daily Northwestern reported.
Evanston Mayor Elizabeth Tisdahl says Northwestern University President Morton Schapiro has promised to keep six home games a year at Ryan Field and games played at Wrigley will not be against a marquee team that sells out, the Daily Northwestern reported.
The five-year marketing agreement between Northwestern University’s athletic department and Chicago Cubs, a professional franchise is the first of its kind and will benefit many Northwestern teams and Cubs’ employees who seek graduate-level education, Chicago Tribune reported.
