Introducing Soldier Field on the Near South Side of Chicago
Soldier Field opened up back in 1924. The Bears moved here in 1971 after a long residency at Wrigley Field. The stadium is both the original and current home of the Chicago Fire, which in the past also played for stints at SeatGeek and Cardinal stadiums.
Turfed with a natural grass blend, Soldier Field boasts a capacity of 63,500. Besides its NFL and MLS bona fides, it’s also notable for serving as venue for the very first Special Olympics World Summer Games back in 1968.
And on the concert front, some genuine mega-stars have graced the stage at Soldier Field, including the Rolling Stones, George Strait, Paul McCartney, Madonna, U2, and Beyoncé.
