Information

Chicago Fire FC is a Major League Soccer (MLS) club founded on Oct 8, 1997. The team was one of the first two MLS expansion teams along with the now-defunct Miami Fusion. They joined for the 1998 season, MLS's third year.

The Fire originally played at Soldier Field on Chicago's Lakefront (also the home of the Chicago Bears). Beginning in 2006, the club played at soccer-specific SeatGeek Stadium (f.k.a. Toyota Park 2006-18, capacity 20,000) in near west suburban Bridgeview, Ill., under a 30-year lease.
