Best Lineup For A Chicago Fire Game

Although soccer in the United States hasn’t quite reached the popularity it holds in the rest of the world, you’d never know it to watch the Chicago Fire fans at Toyota Park in Chicago’s Bridgeport neighborhood. Locally known as Section 8, which is where die-hard fans sit during games, these Fire lovers know every team chant by heart and serenade the stadium the whole game through. For a more spirited game day experience, sit near Section 8, but if you prefer to concentrate solely on the field, there is not a bad seat in the house. For a full game-day experience, make these pit stops a must any day the Fire plays.
