CHICAGO — You can forget about watching the Chicago Cubs wild-card game at Wrigley Field.

That game is likely to be in Pittsburgh on Wednesday night.

The Cubs planned to sell tickets so fans could watch the game on the video boards at Wrigley, but now they’ve changed their mind.

Here’s the full statement from the Cubs:

“We explored the idea of hosting a NL Wild Card viewing party for fans at Wrigley Field, in the event we play on the road. After much consideration regarding the logistics and time required to successfully execute an exceptional guest experience while actively preparing for potential postseason play at home, we have decided to put this plan on hold. Given the excitement we have seen from Cubs fans this season, we know our fans will find a great place to watch the game and cheer on our team.”
