CHICAGO (WBBM NEWSRADIO) -- A winter tradition for one side of town’s diehard baseball fans will return.

In a brief video posted to Twitter on Wednesday, the Cubs announced that their fan convention will once again be held this January.

Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the franchise chose to not hold the event the past two years. The last convention took place in January 2020 at the Sheraton Grand Chicago.

Besides the dates -- Jan. 13-15 -- the Cubs didn't release any other details. However, they're encouraging interested fans to register online for email updates, which will include when tickets go on sale.

The Cubs Convention first began in 1986 and has consistently sold out. It includes player autograph sessions and interactive discussions.
