Chicago Fire, Eataly Kick Off New Partnership Wednesday in Chicago


The Chicago Fire Soccer Club is set to kick off a new partnership with Italian food emporium Eataly Chicago tonight (Wednesday) at Eataly's River North location (43 E Ohio St., Chicago). 

The launch event will be centered in Birreria, Eataly's brewpub and on-site headquarters for anyone wishing to catch a Chicago Fire match on TV. Starting at 5:30 p.m., fans are invited to enjoy $5 housemade beers and a special $9 aperitivo bar. Each guest who attends can enter into a raffle to win the ultimate Eataly and Chicago Fire experience: tickets, soccer gear and an Eataly gift card.

Chicago Fire defender Jonathan Campbell and midfielder Michael Stephens -- along with Chicago Fire mascot Sparky -- will be in attendance from 6-7 p.m. to help kick off the partnership.
