CHICAGO (Feb. 15, 2024) – Chicago Fire FC today officially unveiled 14 new partners for the Club’s Performance Center, which is currently under construction in the Roosevelt Square neighborhood on the Near West Side. These partners all play an integral role in bringing the Performance Center to life, developing a world-class facility to attract and train top talent and positively impact the community.

"Chicago Fire FC is thrilled to have so many local companies supporting the construction of our Performance Center,” said Senior Vice President, Community Programs, Engagement, and Facilities Paul Cadwell. “The development of this world class facility will not only allow the Club to train players at the highest level but will also be a hub to grow our community outreach. With the support of these partners, we’re able to continue to expand our impact throughout the greater Chicago area.”

From the excavation of the land to the laying of the grass fields, to placing the final finishing touches on the Club’s office spaces, the below partners are essential for the Fire to provide a state-of-the-art facility for players and staff and indoor and outdoor community spaces to support employment opportunities for community members, resources for minority and women-owned businesses, free sports programming for local youth, community green spaces, and much more.

Chicago Fire FC is proud to welcome:

  • AstroTurf as the Synthetic and Hybrid Turf Provider
  • BlackRock, providing Concrete Construction services
  • Landworks as the facility Landscaping Partner
  • World Class Fire Protection LLC , providing the facility’s Fire Protection (Sprinkler Systems and Pumps)

In addition to serving as the Office Furniture and Architectural Products Supplier, Office Revolution will work with the Fire to convert a basketball court at the Performance Center during the 2025 season to create soccer spaces for youth in the Near West Side neighborhood. Pepper Construction/BOWA JV will serve as the Presenting Partner of the Coach of the Year Award during a regular season match promoting the P.L.A.Y.S. (Participate, Learn, Achieve, Youth, Soccer) Program, designed to enhance the academic performance and development of key social and emotional skills of elementary school students through a sports-based curriculum. SCG Fields will also serve as a Supporting Sponsor of P.L.A.Y.S., ensuring the Foundation can continue to serve over 1,200 youth annually.

The above partners join CELSIUS®, who was previously announced as the first partner to sign-on to the Performance as part of Celsius Holdings’ multiyear agreement with the Fire.
