He is in Barca now but it would have been huge for the Polish community in Chicago if they had gotten him 🇵🇱🇵🇱 

I figure the earliest this could be done is 2026 but I think that would also require moving to Illinois for a couple years again.

and here is the backup plan

 

 

I really dont see the practicality of spending hundreds of millions of taxpayer money to shrink soldier field for an MLS team. Does not draw really any money and from MLS standards the current stadium is fine.

I say we keep layering on ruinous renovations of Soldier Field. Just every few decades make it even dumber and uglier. That can be its new legacy.

The main draw of doing this wouldn't be soccer, it would be concerts. Set up some summer 3-day concerts with Dave Matthews, Phish, Dead & Co., Luke Bryan. etc. and you make an easy million+ each weekend.

I know it seems like im piling on here but was Soldier Field ever that historic to begin with? The Bears only played there since 71 and produced 1 championship team. Before that they hosted a handful of Notre Dame Games and one Army Navy Game. Sure the original design was nice but that was badgered.

Technically it's 100 years old. So yeah, It is historic. 

But the renovations have absolutely butchered the stadium,  which is why it got removed from the Historic locations.

Lightfoot is going to be the reason why downtown Chicago will be in a :censored:ty state for years to come whilst the Bears get to experience the highs of Arlington.... heck even the NFL wants the Bears in Arlington Heights

Seems like the lady with a hairline that’s receded more than my Dad’s is doing as good of a job as she can to try and keep the team but the increasing crime around Soldier Field really is not helping. Businesses and fans have been complaining more than usual lately but that’s just how things roll, I guess. That and not many teams are going to pass up a new stadium if the opportunity arises.

 

Okay, real talk, Lori Lightfoot looks she grew up in Innsmouth.

The Bears have an opportunity to control their stadium and build a mall full of Sweetgreen and Fabletics outlets next to it. They'll never get that at Soldier Field, regardless of who the mayor is or what political pearl-clutching is going on.

Didn't realize there were that many Aspiring Rappers hanging around the Field Museum.
