Extra stadium info – Soldier Field

The construction of the stadium, which opened as the Municipal Grant Park Stadium, started in 1922. It hosted 1994 World Cup matches of the national football teams of Belgium, Bolivia, Bulgaria, Germany, Greece and Spain. The Chicago Bears and the Chicago Fire use the venue for home games. The Chicago Bears became one of the most successful National Football League clubs. In 1986, the Bears won the Super Bowl for the first time in their history. They drew an average attendance of 60,000 in eight home games in that NFL season. The Chicago Fire, the first football club from Illinois with 100,000 followers on their main social media page, drew an average home attendance of 17,000 in their first-ever Major League Soccer season at the venue. In 2011, they played their first-ever football match against a FIFA Club World Cup winner, when they faced Manchester United Football Club in front of 61,000 fans at the Soldier Field.
