Dear Chicago | A Letter from Joe Mansueto


Mayor Lightfoot and I are announcing today that the Chicago Fire is returning to the heart of the city. The club will play at Soldier Field for the 2020 Major League Soccer season.

On this anniversary of both the Great Chicago Fire and the founding of our team, my goal is to deliver a world-class club worthy of our city and one that represents all of Chicago — our neighborhoods, our people and our spirit.

The game we love has a unique ability to unite us all — and when Chicago is united, we can accomplish anything. I am excited to invite all of Chicago to join us as we embark on our journey.

I’m honored to represent Chicago as your club’s new owner. Together, we’ll build a club that all of Chicago can proudly call our own.

Joe Mansueto
Owner, Chicago Fire
