The Nike Chicago Cubs City Connect Jersey is a Chicago story — not just Wrigleyville. The city’s flag, municipal mark and public rail lines are icons of the city, which speak to the city’s connectivity. Within the design, we utilized elements of each to mirror the Cubs’ ambition of unifying the city’s neighborhoods.
The collection features the Chicago municipal device – a century-old symbol hidden in plain sight throughout the city whose design nods to Wolf Point where the north and south branches of the Chicago River meet. Across the chest, and stitched in the shape of the iconic Wrigley Field Marquee, is the place where we play and connect through the game we love. And on our caps you’ll find the six-pointed red star – taken from the flag that flies over our beautiful city. Across the collection, the names of all 77 neighborhoods are noted with Lakeview appearing in red as a tribute to the neighborhood the Cubs call “home.”
