DraftKings Opens Wrigley Field Sportsbook

After 14 months of planning and construction, DraftKings announced their Wrigley Field sportsbook would open on June 27. The location is along the left-field wall of the stadium on the corner of Addison and Sheffield. The sportsbook will be open year-round but will not have an entryway to the stadium, meaning fans at a game cannot access the sportsbook from inside Wrigley, and vice versa. 

While the sportsbook will open on June 27 with food and drink service, customers cannot place any bets yet. DraftKings’ application to run a retail sportsbook at the location is still pending, but everything is in place for betting to go live as soon as they are approved. Their application is expected to be approved, but there is no firm timeline for when that could happen.

What the Sportsbook Includes

The DraftKings Sportsbook location has two levels of seating and bars, with wrap-around TV’s so fans can keep tabs on games or check for the latest odds. DraftKings partnered with Levy Hospitality to handle the food and drinks, showing their commitment to making this more than just a sportsbook.

“This is going to be the most top-notch location to grab a bite to eat prior to a game or post-game,” said Jeff Denlea, the Levy vice president said. “The experience here and ambiance is unprecedented to any location we have in the Wrigley area.”

The sportsbook will stay open year-round, and all customers must be at least 21 years old to enter.

Why it is Significant

While some online sportsbooks have opened small retail locations, this DraftKings sportsbook is the first of its kind. Its focus on food and drink offerings and its location next to one of the most iconic stadiums in the country sets it far apart from competitors. Assuming the sportsbook succeeds as expected, it will likely mark a new era for retail sportsbooks in the US.
