Today’s Groupon gets you one ticket to the Miller Lite Party Deck at a Chicago Fire game and a Chicago Fire t-shirt likely made of either 100% cotton, a cotton-poly blend, or possibly lycra. Or you can get a Groupon for a FieldSide ‘On the Pitch’ ticket and get up close to the action. Come out to TOYOTA PARK to watch the Fire ignite opponents in an effort to keep the top spot in the Eastern Conference.
Expect an inferno of fútbol at any of these matches. The August 5 game at 7 p.m. will be a particularly competitive match-up as the Fire hope to engulf the Tigres in flames of victory in the SuperLiga Final. The competition will also be stiff on August 19 when the Fire play the LA Galaxy, led by Bend It Like Beckham screenwriter David Beckham; fans watching the match on ESPN2 will be overcome with jealousy, wishing they could experience the scalding action in person. On the August 29, the Fire will fight to defend their #1 spot against DC United, the second place Eastern Conference rival that’s currently nipping at the Fire’s blazing hot heels.
Choose to sit on the Miller Lite Party Deck (and get a free classic Chicago Fire t-shirt) or down on the pitch with stellar FieldSide ‘On The Pitch’ seats. Both tickets offer unique game experiences at the TOYOTA PARK. The Miller Lite Party Deck gets you seats behind the goal (in sections 135–139) and gives you access to a buzzing party deck (hence the name). These seats are so much fun, you must be 21 or older to get them. Free concessions like hotdogs, pretzels, popcorn, and four 16-oz. Miller Lites are yours to scarf down starting 90 minutes before kick-off. Snag the free food and drinks until the 20th minute of play. After that, you can still purchase any or all of the concessions if you haven’t had your fill.
If you go for the FieldSide ‘On The Pitch’ seats, you’re in for a high-roller experience. You’ll sit on the pitch right next to the visiting team’s bench—so you’ll be super close to the action. The package comes complete with VIP treatment for the day. Park your car in your complimentary reserved spot in the players’ parking lot (for every two seats purchased) just 200 yards from your seat. Enter the stadium through the private FieldSide entrance and read up on the game notes that will be waiting on your seat when you arrive. Sit back and enjoy in-seat food and beverage service from the moment the gates open until the end of the match and have access to the Stadium Club.

Historical Significance of the Chicago Fire
The Chicago Fire take their name from the Great Chicago Fire of 1871, but the two have more than a name in common. Both grew quickly: the soccer team in popularity, the disaster in number of square miles devastated. Both are greatly influenced by wind. Both started due to a woman and her cow. And much in the same way the Great Chicago Fire decimated the city’s architecture, the Chicago Fire burn their opponents and leave them on the field in a pile of emotional ashes. Don’t miss seeing Chicago’s most popular soccer team, which was named after Chicago’s most popular disaster.
