The construction of the SeatGeek Stadium, which opened as the Toyota Park, started in 2004. The construction costs of the stadium were $98 million and it is known as a venue for several events, like concerts, field lacrosse, football and rugby union. The venue hosted its first-ever FIFA World Cup qualifier in 2008, when the national football team of the United States defeated Trinidad and Tobago 3-0. It opened as the home of football club Chicago Fire. The Chicago House, the Chicago Red Stars and the Chicago State Cougars use the SeatGeek Stadium for football matches. The Chicago Red Stars became one of the first women’s football clubs with home attendances above 10,000. The club was founded in 2006.
In 1998, 36,000 people attended the first-ever Major League Soccer home game of the Chicago Fire.
