How to Watch the Chicago Cubs' Visit to the White House Live

NOTE: NBC Chicago will offer a live stream with coverage of the visit beginning at 12:05 p.m. Monday right here.

The Chicago Cubs are set to visit the White House Monday in an unusual trip honoring the World Series champions during President Barack Obama's final week as president -- and you can watch it all happen live.  

Whether you're at work, on the go or at home you can watch complete live coverage of the visit on the NBC Chicago app. 

We will offer a live stream with complete coverage scheduled to begin at 12:05 p.m. 

"The visit will continue the tradition begun by President Obama for honoring sports teams for their efforts to give back to their communities," a statement from the White House said.

The move is slightly unusual. The reigning World Series champions normally make the traditional White House visit during the following MLB season.

The Cubs, who ended a 108-year title drought in Game 7 against the Cleveland Indians, were hoping to get to Washington, D.C., before Obama left office. Though the president is a White Sox fan, he calls Chicago home and rooted for the North Siders since his team didn't make the playoffs.
