Some of the most iconic parts of Wrigley Field could include advertisements.

That’s part of the Chicago Cubs’ plan to add revenue so ownership could fund the renovation of Wrigley Field.

Under a plan that’s already approved by the city Landmarks Commission, the amount of ad space at Wrigley could be double of what it is now.

The plan includes putting a corporate name, in white letters, on the clock at the top of the scoreboard above center field.

There may also be ads installed on the lights next to the clock.

That’s not the only place in the outfield that could get more signs.

Ads could be installed on the basket that lines the top of the ivy-covered wall.

Corporate logos could also cover the doors on that same wall.

These sign proposals are in addition to the requested 6,000 square foot video board above left field and the 1,000 square foot sign above right field.

The Wrigley Field renovation plan is scheduled to be considered by the city Plan Commission on July 18.
