The Cubs will play the New York Mets in the 2nd series of this homestand. This series will be 3 games and will be played in the middle of the week, on a Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursday. The Mets have added a lot of depth for the 2021 season and are considered contenders for the NL East. James McCann has signed this off-season to help handle one of the best pitching staff in Baseball.
The Brewers will be visiting Wrigley Field to play the Cubs for the second time this season. As always, this series expects to have a sell-out crowd in attendance.

Starting on Tuesday, May 3rd, 2021, the defending World Series Champion Los Angeles Dodgers will come to Wrigley Field to play their one and only series at Wrigley Field this season. This will be the first series of three for a 6 game homestand for the Cubs. It is hard to believe, but the Dodgers have somehow managed to make themselves even better in 2021 than they were in their historic 2020 season. Even though they lost fan-favorite Joc Pederson to the Cubs in free agency, they were able to sign some significant free agents themselves with starting pitcher Trever Bauer being the biggest one.
The Pittsburgh Pirates will come to Chicago to play the Cubs for the 2nd time in the 2021 season. This is a 3 game weekend series that will take place with 3 straight-day games at the Friendly Confines. This will be the last game of the Cubs 6 game homestand before coming back home to host the 2019 World Series Champion Washington Nationals on May 17th.
The Detroit Tigers come to Wrigley to play a short 2 game series at Wrigley Field. The last time that the Tigers played at Wrigley Field was in 2018. Detroit Tigers fans have traveled well to See the Cubs and Tigers play at Wrigley and it should be no different this year.
On Monday, May 17th the 2019 World Series Champion Washington Nationals will come to Wrigley Field to take on the Chicago Cubs in a 4 game series. The Cubs will have their hands full facing a tough Nationals pitching staff that is led by Matt Scherzer, who they will almost certainly face, being that it is a 4 game set. The Nats also have a powerful lineup led by Juan Soto.
The Cubs will host the Cincinnati Reds for the 1st time in the 2021 season from Friday, May 28 - Sunday, May 30th. This 3 game series at Wrigley will all be day games with a 1:20 PM start. Memorial day weekend crowds at Wrigley Field are usually quite big with each game usually being a sellout. While Cincinnati is not a short drive, it is a short flight and Wrigley Field should have their share of Reds fans in town for the series.
The San Diego Padres have stacked their roster this season with a top-of-the-line pitching staff and a very potent batting lineup. Expect fan interest for this 3 game series to be very high as Cubs fans will want to see how their team matches up against one of the National League West's best teams. Yu Darvish, who was dealt to the Padres from the Cubs will join Manny Machado, Fernando Tatis, and the rest of the San Diego Padres in their only visit to Wrigley Field in the regular season this year.
The Cubs vs Padres 3 game series that began on May 31st, 2021 will continue thru June 2nd, 2021
The Cubs will stop home for a short 3 game series against their biggest rival, the St. Louis Cardinals. This will be the first of 3 series that these two rivals will have at Wrigley Field this season for a total of 9 games in Chicago. The Cards and the Cubs should be battling for the division lead throughout the 2021 season and Cardinals fans usually have a very strong showing at Wrigley Field. Tickets will be at a premium because not only is this the Cubs vs Cardinals, it is also a weekend Series.
Although this is not a heated rivalry, Cubs fans will never forget that it was the then Florida Marlins who knocked them out of the playoffs in 2003, as Cubs fans watched the Marlins celebrate winning the National League Pennant at Wrigley Field. Another historical moment from that series was the famous "Bartman Game". Fast forward to the 2020 MLB playoffs, and once again it was the Marlins knocking the Cubs out of the playoffs. The Marlins surprised a lot of people by making the 2020 MLB playoffs and are definitely a team on the rise.
The Cleveland Indians will be the first American League team to visit Wrigley for the 2021 season. This 2 games interleague series will be the last home games for the month of June on the 2021 Cubs schedule. It was the Indians that the Cubs defeated in the 2016 World Series for their first World Series title in 108 years. The Indians have lost key pieces like Francisco Lindor, but they still have one of the better pitching staff in all of Major League Baseball going into the season.
The Cubs and Phillies will face off in a 5 game set starting Monday, July 5th, 2021. All four games are scheduled as night games with a 7:05 PM start.

The Cubs and White Sox will play each other at Wrigley Field on Friday, August 6th, Saturday, August 7th, and Sunday, August 8th in the 2021 season. Because the 2021 MLB interleague schedule has the National League Central vs the American League Central this year, these inter-city rivals will play each other a total of 6 times, rather than the 4 times they play each other in a normal year. There is a huge fan interest for these games in the city of Chicago and the surrounding suburbs as fans fight for the right to brag about their North Side team, the Chicago Cubs or South Side team, The Chicago White Sox.
The Brewers come back to Wrigley for a 4 game series that caps off a homestand for the Cubs with two of the closest rivals as far as geographical measures are concerned. As Wrigley field will be invaded the whole homestand with White Sox and Brewers fans, expect tickets to be very hard to obtain on the primary market. The Cubs and Brewers fans both travel well to each other ballparks, but if the Brewers and Cubs are competing for 1st place in the NL Central, it will bring fan interest up even higher. This will be the final series for the Cubs and Brewers at Wrigley Field in the 2021 regular season, the two teams will meet one more time for a 3 game series in Milwaukee at American Family Field from September 17th - 19th.

The Cubs will begin their longest homestand of the 2021 season of 10 games with a 4 game series starting September 2nd vs the Pittsburgh Pirates.

The San Francisco Giants will finally make their one and only 2021 regular-season appearance at Wrigley Field in Chicago when the two teams face each other on Friday, September 10th, Saturday, September 11th, and Sunday, September 12th in a 3 game series.

The Cubs will host the Minnesota Twins for their last interleague series of the year. Both the Cubs and the Twins are expected to be in competition for their respective division races. Expect Twins fans to take the short flight to Chicago to see their team play if the Twins are in the hunt.
The final homestand of the year for the Chicago Cubs is capped off with the division rival St. Louis Cardinals. By the time this 3 game series comes up on the schedule, both teams may be in must-win situations which can make this series even bigger than it already is with the natural rivalry.
