The Scouting Report
During the 3rd Annual Fire, Brews & Bites fundraiser on June 14, fans 21 and older head to Carmichael’s Steakhouse to watch soccer on the big screen, enjoy an appetizer buffet, and sample beers from local brewers, including Revolution, 3 Floyd’s, and more.
So far, the Chicago Fire have lost fewer games than any team in the Eastern Conference. Many of those games have been tense stalemates, including a 1–1 draw against the first-place New England Revolution and a 2–2 nail-biter against second-place DC United. They also scored a tough 2–1 victory over third-place Sporting KC, proving that the Fire can play with the league’s best clubs. With more than five months left in the regular season, the team is still very much in playoff contention, buoyed by the stellar play of Mike Magee, who won the league MVP last year, much to the disappointment of the the big brick walls other teams had installed at goalkeeper.
Kindled on October 8, 1997—the 126th anniversary of Chicago’s infamous blaze—the Chicago Fire played their first Major League Soccer season in 1998 as one of the league’s first expansion teams—and nabbed its first and only MLS Cup in that inaugural season. Under the supervision of U.S. Men’s National Team head coach Bob Bradley, the club has been a hazard ever since, taking home four Lamar Hunt U.S. Open Cup trophies and reaching the playoffs in nearly every year of its existence. Located in Bridgeview, Toyota Park hosts each home game, its grounds spacious enough to seat 20,000 and fertile enough for planting new soccer-net saplings each spring.
