At Soldier Field or on the road, Chicago is with us whenever we take the field. That's the inspiration behind the 2020 'Stand For Chicago' patch series unveiled by Chicago Fire FC.

Despite the new look of the 2020 season, the series continues with CFFC sporting custom-designed patches on the jocktag location of the team's primary and secondary jerseys over the course of the year.

Stand For Chicago Patch Series - Designs 1 and 2

We wear our badge in the name of Chicago and its people. When a new era of Chicago Fire FC officially kicked off on March 1 at the home of the reigning MLS Cup champion, we wore with us another reminder that we Stand For Chicago. More than four months -- but only two matches -- later, the patch will be worn again versus Seattle, this time with added significance in the opening game of the MLS Is Back Tournament in Orlando.

It all started with a legend. From a fallen lantern that set Chicago ablaze in 1871 to the steely resolve of those who led a city's rebirth, the story of Chicago was with us for a 1-1 road draw against the New England Revolution on Saturday, March 7.

Stand For Chicago Patch Series - Designs 3 and 4

Much-needed conversations and action around social justice and equal opportunity for the Black community have recently taken place in our country. Chicago Fire FC is committed to continuing those conversations.

First worn as a captain's armband at the MLS Is Back Tournament in July, the Fire has throught this fall worn the Black Lives Matter jersey patch, an original design by Chicago-based artist Dwight White and a sign of solidarity with the Black community's continued push for equality.

For months, members of Chicago Fire FC have stood in awe and appreciation of Chicago's medical personnel and essential workers for their service throughout the pandemic. Those brave Chicagoans have been with us on our secondary jerseys throughout the return to play.

In Chicago and across the country, this week represents a historic opportunity to participate in our democracy and help shape the future of our communities. In wearing a custom 'VOTE' patch, Chicago Fire FC encourages everyone to stand for Chicago and make their voices heard by exercising your right to vote.
