Pub to Pitch FAQs
Where do I purchase tickets?
All tickets can be purchased on the Chicago Fire website at www.pubtopitch.com
Can I purchase tickets for the bus along with a match ticket?
Yes, please select the Ticket + Bus Options at the url above. From this screen you can then select the pub you would like to be picked up at and select your seats for any 2015 home matches at Toyota Park.
Can I buy tickets at the pubs?
Tickets can only be purchased at the pubs on the day of the match if there is available space on the bus. Each bus will have a captain that will collect cash for tickets on game day. To ensure your seat on the bus, please place your order as far in advance as possible at www.pubtopitch.com.
Do season ticket holders receive a discount on bus tickets?
Yes, when purchasing tickets on Ticketmaster, you will see multiple options. Season Ticket Holders will be able to purchase tickets for the bus at $10 a ticket. Non-Season Ticket Holders will pay $15. Gameday purchases are $20 for all patrons (both Season Ticket Holders and non-Season Ticket Holders).
I received a confirmation email from TicketMaster after purchasing my tickets, but the order has a row and seat number. Is this my bus ticket? How do I know if I'm on the list?
Because the bus tickets are purchased through TicketMaster, the confirmation email includes a section, row and seat number (similar to match tickets). You do not need a ticket to board the bus and seating on the bus is open. In addition to this confirmation email, bus riders will receive a pre-bus email from the club with additional information on departure times and more.
What if I need to change my pick-up location to another pub after I purchase my tickets?
Please e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org or call 708-496-6656 to change your pick-up location at least three days in advance of the match. We will do our best to meet any new location requests but cannot guarantee changes in pick-up locations.
Do I need to show a ticket to get on to the bus?
As long as you have purchased your tickets in advance, you will be on the passenger manifest and do not need to show a ticket to board the bus. A captain will begin checking people on to the bus shortly after it arrives.
How do I know what time the bus leaves the bar to go to the stadium?
A full schedule is available at www.pubtopitch.com. If there are any changes to the schedule, an e-mail will be sent to all bus riders notifying them of the change.
Do I get discounts on food or drinks at the bars?
Each matchday, Pub To Pitch bus riders are invited to arrive early at their chosen pub to take advantage of drink and food specials. These specials vary from each pub and all Pub To Pitch ticket buyers will receive an email ahead of matchday with more information about food and drink discounts and special pre-bus events.
