17th Anniversary DL

Early October is right around the corner and while the City of Chicago marks the 153rd anniversary of the Great Chicago Fire of 1871, the Club will celebrate the 17th anniversary of its founding on October 8 at Toyota Park.

Supporters are invited to join Fire players, coaches and staff at the Toyota Park Stadium Club Wednesday, October 8 from 6:00pm-9:30pm as the club recognizes the Tradition, Honor and Passion of those that have represented the Fire over the past 17 years.

“October 8 is a significant date in the history of our Club and City,” said Chicago Fire Chief Operating Officer Atul Khosla. “We take great pride in the fact that our identity ties directly to the history of Chicago like no other team in the city and are honored to celebrate October 8 with our supporters.”

Entrance is free to all supporters with a suggested $10 donation to the Chicago Fire Foundation. Section 8 Chicago will hold its October board meeting from 6:00-7:00pm with food, beverages and the program featuring classic Fire matches, prize raffle and stadium tours beginning afterwards.
