With Opening Day less than a month away, Chicago Cubs fans show their undying loyalty, purchasing an impressive 6% of all sports tickets sold on TicketsNow.com in February.

"Baseball fans are some of the most loyal fans in the world, and we expect ticket sales to remain strong as we get closer to Opening Day," said Kenneth Dotson, chief marketing officer for TicketsNow. "For our customers, having great baseball tickets is not just about watching the game; it's about the full experience of spending the day with friends and family at a ballpark like Fenway or Wrigley."
