History & description

The stadium was named in honor of General John J. Pershing, who commanded the American Expeditionary Force in World War I. In the early years, the stadium would regularly pack over 100,000 spectators. These crowds culminated in 123,000 people watching a football match between Notre Dame and Southern California in 1927.

In 1986, the Bears moved into their new stadium, Soldier Field. The new stadium had a capacity of 61,500 seats. In the 1970s, the Chicago Bears moved from their old stadium to their new one which had a capacity of 61,500 seats.

The stadium was also used for the final match between Brazil and Croatia (5-7).

The stadium was almost completely rebuilt in 2003 except for the classic facades, which reduced capacity to its current of just over 60,000.

The stadium had become the home of Chicago Fire in 1998, when they entered the newly formed MLS. However, soon it proved too large for their attendances, so they planned to build a new soccer-specific stadium. They moved to Toyota Park in Bridgeview in 2005.

However, 15 years later they never really warmly accepted the stadium far out of town, and so in 2020 they decided to move back to Soldier Field.

The stadium has been a regular playing venue for Concacaf Gold Cups tournaments held in the USA over the years. It hosted the 2007 final, 2013 final, and 2019 final.

Soldier Field will be one of the playing venues for the 2026 World Cup that is hosted in the United States, Mexico, and Canada.

How to get to Soldier Field

Soldier Field is located in central Chicago on the waterfront of Lake Michigan. It lies at the southern edge of Chicago's central business district, The Loop, and is easily reached. The Roosevelt station is on the Red, Green, and Orange lines. It has links to many central locations, and it is a 15-minute walk to the stadium.

If you are coming from the south of Chicago, you might be able to catch a Metra Electric train to 18th Street Station.
