South Bend Cubs named Advanced-A affiliate of Chicago Cubs
SOUTH BEND, Ind. – The Chicago Cubs extended their partnership with South Bend through the year 2030 today with the official announcement of the South Bend Cubs elevating to a Class A-Advanced affiliate of the Major League team.
This announcement comes as a result of the South Bend Cubs accepting Major League Baseball’s invitation to join the newly established Minor League Baseball system in December 2020.

Berlin, Chairman and Owner of the South Bend Cubs. “Now, fans from across this region will see an even higher level of play on the field. The leap to Class A-Advanced is an exciting development for all of us.”
As part of the Major League’s restructured development system, fans of the South Bend Cubs will see more experience and talent on the baseball field as the team moves from Class Low-A to Advanced-A.
