Not even a full month after successfully taking over Yankee Stadium in New York, Pantone 294 has its sights set even higher. Over 1,300 people made the 2,789 mile trek to the opposite side of the country. For the next trip the group is hoping for an even bigger turnout as it travels to Chicago to take over Wrigley field April 7-11.
As if the game needed any more excitement, the two teams have a good shot at meeting each other in the National League Championship Series. With both teams having such a stacked farmhouse, this could be the beginning of a serious rivalry brewing between the National League powerhouses.
One of the most noted saying from the fan group is “It’s not just a ticket, it’s an experience.” An experience is an understatement, as the plethora of Dodger fans take Saturday to tour the new city, making sure to stop at historic monuments and city attractions.
Round trip tickets from Los Angeles costs $425 while departing from Las Vegas will cost $475. Fans will be staying at Comfort Suites in Chicago. The room rates are $150 per night for three nights, so that is $450 in total.
On Sunday night, the team sets out to sea on a yacht trip to get together and enjoy each other’s company as Dodger fans. Contrary to most beliefs, the yacht party will only cost $28 to attend. Monday is game day for Pantone 294 as they will look to bring Chavez Ravine to Wrigley Field, before departing back for home on Tuesday. Ticket details for the game have not yet been released but the fan group expects over 1,000 tickets to be purchased for the event.
Pantone 294 is a bold group of Dodger fans that look to cheer their team onto victory on the road. Bold is truly the word to describe the group that did the New York “Bleacher Creatures,” roll call in Yankee Stadium. Much to the dismay of the Yankee fans in attendance of course.
Ray.People will come. Ray.

New York wasn’t the first trip for the power group. Arizona, San Diego, Toronto and San Francisco are some of the teams who have felt the wrath of the fan group. Chicago is next in the crosshairs for Pantone 294.
