Cubs Announce Tentative 2023 Schedule, Including Every AL Team and Trip Across Pond
The Cubs have announced the tentative 2023 regular season schedule and will open their 148th season against the Brewers on Thursday, March 30, at Wrigley Field. This is the third time in the last four seasons that the Cubs open a campaign at home against Milwaukee, having done so in both the abbreviated 2020 60-game regular season as well as this 2022 season.
After three games vs. the Brewers (March 30, April 1-2), the Cubs head to Cincinnati for a brief three-game series against the Reds (April 3-5) before returning home for a six-game homestand against the Rangers (April 7-9) and Mariners (April 10-12). Chicago then heads west for a six-game trip at the Dodgers (April 14-16) and Athletics (April 17-19).
The 2023 schedule is highlighted by interleague play against every American League team along with the annual home-and-home with the White Sox, which features a pair of two-game series July 25-26 (Guaranteed Rate Field) and August 15-16 (Wrigley Field).
In addition to the home games against the Rangers, Mariners and White Sox, the Cubs interleague schedule includes hosting the Rays (three games, May 29-31), Orioles (three games, June 16-18), Guardians (three games, June 30-July 2), Red Sox (three games, July 14-16) and Royals (three games, August 18-20).
The Cubs are scheduled to host four holiday games in 2023: Easter (April 9 vs. Texas); Memorial Day (May 29 vs. Tampa Bay); Father’s Day (June 18 vs. Baltimore); and Labor Day (September 4 vs. San Francisco).
Chicago will travel to London to play a two-game series against the Cardinals at London Stadium on June 24-25. The Cubs have a six-game homestand vs. Pittsburgh and Baltimore (June 13-18) followed by a three-game series in Pittsburgh, June 19-21, before departing for London.
