“Peanut-Controlled Zone” at the Chicago White Sox

Tuesday, April 17 at 7:10pm

$36.50/ticket, which includes $10 in “Bonus Bux” that can be used to buy food and beverage at any permanent club level concession stand.

U.S. Cellular Field, 333 W. 35th Street, Chicago

To provide fans with severe allergies with the safest environment possible, no peanuts, or anything containing peanuts, will be allowed or sold in three reserved sections of the club level at U.S. Cellular Field. The concession stands closest to the area will not sell peanuts and the area will be meticulously cleaned and inspected prior to the game. For the least peanut-exposed path to the game, enter through the Chicago Sports Depot near Gate 5 on the north side of 35th Street. From the second level exit of the store, escalators lead up to a bridge over the street which ends at the Club Level concourse.

There are approximately 200 seats available in the peanut-free zone, so reserve your seats early. To purchase tickets in the Peanut-Controlled Zone, email or call Dustin Milliken at dmilliken@chisox.com or 312-674-5186.
