How the Cardinals hope to take advantage of the Cubs’ championship

The St. Louis Cardinals no longer have those century-old bragging rights over the Chicago Cubs, but that isn’t all bad.

Tickets to games between the NL Central rivals are usually hot items, and the Cardinals apparently are willing to take advantage not only of the high demand but also the Cubs’ newfound success. In fact, the Chicago Tribune went as far as to claim the Cardinals have “Cubs Fever.”

That’s because the Cardinals’ website is promoting a ticket package called the “Cubs Pack” that includes tickets to five Cubs games.

Not only that, it is using this marketing motto: “Cubs, Cubs, and more Cubs… catch five great games with the reigning world champs.”

Not included in that plan: the season opener between the teams at Busch Stadium on Sunday, April 2. However, the April 4 afternoon matchup is among the five games in the package.
