👀  Must-See Content | Micheal Azira Launches Youth Foundation

As part of Saturday's pregame show on WGN, Fire midfielder Micheal Aira sat down to discuss the recent launch of his Azira Micheal Youth Foundation. Azira went live with his digital presence last week as part of his continued efforts to give back to the youth in his home country of Uganda through education and soccer.

🤔 Fast Fact

While Saturday's meeting with Orlando -- the first between new head coaches Raphael Wicky and Oscar Pareja -- represents the start of a new chapter in this matchup's history, the Fire have firmly controlled things against Orlando over the last few seasons. In the five previous matches between these two sides, the Fire have scored four or more goals in three of them, going 4-0-1 in that span. Last time out, the Fire put five past their Eastern Conference counterparts in part powered by a brace from midfielder Przemysław Frankowski. That one finished 5-2 on Oct. 6, 2019 at Exploria Stadium.

🗣 Sound Off | CJ Sapong

Having missed the five matches prior, Chicago Fire forward CJ Sapong returned to the field as a substitution in last weekend's 2-2 draw against Columbus Crew SC. Following Wednesday's training session, he spoke about getting back to work following his period in quarantine.

🆚 #ORLvCHI All-Time

Saturday’s game marks the first meeting between the Fire and Orlando City in 2020. Chicago enters the match unbeaten on the road against Orlando, producing a 2-0-3 all-time away record against the Lions. In their most recent matchup, the Fire secured the aforementioned 5-2 win at Exploria Stadium on Oct. 6, 2019, marking the Club’s largest road victory of the 2019 campaign.
