General InfoTOYOTA PARK is the heart of soccer for much of the Midwest and a must-see destination for world-class concerts and other sporting events. Each year, more than a half million people go by the stadium's trademark brick arch, many achieving or reliving what has become a rite of passage for sports and music fans alike. TOYOTA PARK regularly hosts blockbuster concerts by the likes of Jimmy Buffett, Eric Clapton's Crossroads Guitar Festival, Phish and B96 Pepsi Summerbash on its permanent dedicated music stage. Since opening its doors in 2006, TOYOTA PARK also has treated fans to rugby and football games, as well as wrestling and mixed martial arts events. TOYOTA PARK's expansive parking lots regularly host large festivals and special entertainment, such as circus acts. The 20,000 seat soccer facility (28,000 for concerts) is owned and managed by the Village of Bridgeview. It features 42 executive suites aincluding six stage suites (available for sporting events). TOYOTA PARK is conveniently located in Bridgeview near I-294 and-I-55, within an easy drive from every corner of the Chicago area. Just 15 miles from Chicago's Loop, TOYOTA PARKoffers ample parking and is served by PACE buses and shuttle links with the nearby CTA Midway Orange Line station.

For years, the Chicago Fire have entertained soccer fans and have put Major League Soccer on notice that they are a team to beat. They won the MLS Cup in their 1st season and have rarely missed the playoffs. Before the Fire called Toyota Park home, they shared Soldier Field with ""Da Bears"" and moved in June 06. Toyota Park has played host not only to soccer, but also to concert events like the B96 Summer Bash and rugby and lacrosse games. It may have been built as a ""soccer specific stadium"", but it can can be used for more than just soccer. There are several negatives about the Park. There are no parking lines in the lots and most of the lots are STILL not blacktoped or marked with signs to find your car. Exiting can be difficult since traffic patterns can change due to incoming freight trains or stupid cops only opening 1 lane out. The food can use improvement (quality, price, and variety-wise). The field ""looks"" smaller than other soccer fields and the facility is a bit smaller than other soccer specific stadiums (seating approx. 20K). There's only 1 big screen television at one end of the stadium and they never seem to keep the score of the game throughout without them flashing an ad or the crowd. Security can't get story straight on what can and can not be allowed in the stadium (but what I observed, it's the BLACK GUARDS who say no to everything and even YELL AT KIDS). Speaking of, there was an issue of some Monterey security members shouting racial slurs towards our fans, but obviously they denied the story and refused to take responsibility. But I just LOVE the place and soccer. Section 8, the Fire's supporters, ALWAYS encourage fans to stand and cheer like they do in Europe. The seating is so close to the field that you can almost touch the players. Sure, Toyota Park has some ""faults"" that still need to be cleared. But I for one will keep on coming back to support my Chicago Fire and the game of soccer. LETS GO FIRE!!!
