Expect an inferno of fútbol on November 7 when the Fire engulf the New England Revolution in the first playoff home game of the promising postseason. Head to Toyota Park to witness the flames of victory as the New England Revolution stops revolving and starts devolving into a heap of ashen defeat. With today’s Groupon, you can choose from three seating options: live it up on the Miller Lite Party Deck for $30 (a $45 value), sit down on the pitch with stellar FieldSide seats for $99 (a $225 value), or survey the big picture from the skyway for $10 (a $26 value).
Each ticket offers a different game experience at Toyota Park stadium. If you choose the Miller Lite Party Deck tickets, your seats behind the goal (in sections 135–139) give you access to a buzzing party deck with live DJs. Start consuming free concessions, such as hotdogs, pretzels, popcorn, and four 16-ounce Miller Lites an hour and a half before kickoff (free food and drinks available until the 20th minute of play). After that, you can purchase more concessions if you haven’t had your fill.
If you go for the FieldSide seats, you’re in for a high-roller experience. Sit on the pitch right next to the visiting team’s bench—so close to the game, you’ll be able to smell the Fire’s Cuauhtemoc Blanco. The package comes complete with VIP treatment for the day. Park your car in your complimentary reserved spot in the players’ parking lot (one for every two seats purchased) just 200 yards from your seat before heading to the private FieldSide entrance of the stadium. There should be plenty of parking because players are not actually permitted to park in their own lot, but must run to each game in order to warm up and build character. When you get to your seat, read up on the game notes, enjoy all-inclusive in-seat food and beverage service until the end of the game, and take advantage of your unlimited access to the Stadium Club.
On the skyway (sections 203–211), you’ll have a wide angle on the feverish ball-kicking, kneeing, and head-butting. Watch the playoff game like a soccerish sparrow, throwing your shouts of approval and contempt like deadly pennies tossed from low-hanging clouds of fiery fandom.
Yelpers give the Fire 4.5 stars:
> * If you can manage to be bored at a Fire game, there just might be something wrong with you. The great thing about soccer is that the action is continuous and fast and there’s always something going on. – Jenny A.
> * Fire games are so fun to go to! I have season tickets in the crazy fan section, and I have a blast! I like to take food and tailgate in the parking lot before the game! – Anne S.
> * The only thing better than going to a Fire match is taking someone else to there [sic] first Fire match. – Ted o.
Root, Root, Root for Disaster
When the Chicago Fire made their debut in 1997, many survivors of the actual Great Chicago Fire took umbrage, until it was made clear that the team’s name was actually in reference to a different, much worse Chicago fire planned for September of 2010. Nowadays, it’s common for sports teams to use historical disasters as their mascot or moniker:
- The Hinsdale Hindenburgs
- The Montreal Super-Titantics
- The Toledo Mudslide-That-Swept-Jerry-Away
- The Roswell Nothing Happened Heres
- The Philadelphia Bad Stuff That Went Down in Harry Potter VI
