CHICAGO -- As the Cubs prepare to play in the National League Championship Series, their fans are getting ready to shell-out a lot of money to go to the games at Wrigley Field.

Games three and four will be held at Wrigley (and possibly a game five if necessary), and one online ticket broker is putting the average ticket price at $1,300.

Steve Buzil, of SitClose Tickets, says tickets for a Cubs-Mets series would be more expensive, while a Cubs-Dodgers series would be 30-40% less.

He adds the game scheduled for Wednesday may be a better deal because the first pitch may take place in the mid-afternoon, which means business people would be out of the market for the most part.

But, prices are expected to come down closer to game time.

Fans who registered on the Cubs website were notified Wednesday night if they will have the chance to buy tickets for face value.

Those tickets go on sale Friday.
