Our mission through our adult soccer programs is to provide more opportunities for men and women to enjoy the beautiful game.

CFRS is home to adult soccer leagues, pickups, tournaments, cups, skills classes, and social events.

Leagues – Our league options include small and full-size formats, for men, women, and co-ed teams, tiered for recreational and competitive players. We operate five seasons per year, during the spring, summer, fall and winter.

Pick-Ups – Building on the culture of other prominent soccer countries and promoting unstructured, pick-up soccer during the day. We handle registration and facilities, and the players decide the rest. Giving passionate players time and space to play competitive soccer in a fun environment.

Tournaments – Hosting adult tournaments on holiday weekends, bringing male, female co-ed teams together for a chance compete in knock-out style tournaments and win cash prizes!

Cups – Knockout tournaments that run concurrently to leagues, adding another dimension to our programs while remaining authentic to our sport.

Skills Classes – New to the game? No problem! We offer pay-to-play skills classes for players eager to develop their technical skills and tactical awareness, to help inspire you on the field.

USASA and ISSA Affiliation

In September 2021, Chicago Fire FC affiliated with the United States Adult Soccer Association (USASA) and the Illinois State Soccer Association (ISSA) to bring all CFRS leagues and players under the US Soccer pyramid.

All active CFRS players will have access to the below benefits through the partnership.


Club Pineapple Supporter Group

Club Pineapple is the official supporter’s group of Chicago Fire Rec Soccer, helping to connect the CFRS community to the Chicago Fire FC matchday experience at Soldier Field. Club Pineapple was formed by a group of self-confessed CFRS misfits, morphing into a thriving and charismatic supporters’ group.

Like the city of Chicago, the pineapple is just as diverse and has become a symbol that represents friendship, hospitality, and prosperity. Club Pineapple embodies these qualities from our crown to our core; we are a group of diverse people from all walks of life connected by friendship, a friendship founded by our passion to play soccer.
