The Chicago Fire Soccer Club will host its third annual Pride Night Sunday, with a number of in-stadium and digital features marking the occasion. The club’s partner for the Pride Night is Center on Halsted, a community center dedicated to securing the health and well-being of LGBTQ people of Chicagoland. In support of Center on Halsted, fans can purchase Corner Kick tickets for $21 with $5 from each ticket sold going back to the Center.


In conjunction with the recently announced elevated security standards across all 20 Major League Soccer venues, the Chicago Fire will be screening ALL FANS entering Toyota Park. This enhanced security screening will be conducted via hand-held metal detectors at all gates to the stadium. The club is making every effort to ensure the entry process remains as efficient as possible.

As both fans and security personnel adjust to this new process, lines will be longer than you’ve experienced in the past. Therefore, the club recommends that all fans allow extra time for stadium entry on Saturday. All stadium gates open 60 minutes prior to kickoff (5 p.m.).

Please review a list of frequently asked questions below to help you save time during the screening process. Also, visit for additional information on prohibited and permitted items lists. The increased security policy was unanimously supported by the MLS Board of Governors and involved input from all 20 MLS clubs.
