From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Toyota Park is a soccer-specific stadium located at 71st Street and Harlem Avenue in Bridgeview, Illinois, about 12 miles southwest from downtown Chicago. It is the home stadium of the Chicago Fire Soccer Club, members of Major League Soccer (MLS). Toyota Park was developed at a cost of around $100 million. The facility opened June 11, 2006. It also previously hosted the Chicago Machine of Major League Lacrosse and the Chicago Red Stars of Women's Professional Soccer. Since the fall of 2011, the Chicago Bliss of the Lingerie Football League have also played in Toyota Park.
Stadium [ edit ]
Toyota Park in March 2013
Designed to incorporate traditional stadium features from both American and European facilities, Toyota Park includes mostly covered seating, a brick
facade and stone entry archway, and first rows that are less than three yards from the field. It also includes 42 executive suites, 6 larger party suites, the Illinois Soccer Hall of Fame, and the Fire club offices as well as a large stadium club/banquet room measuring over 9,000 square feet (840 m 2).
A practice facility with two fields (one natural grass, one artificial turf) for the Fire club and its youth programs is adjacent to the stadium. The stadium's design is expandable to 30,000 seats without great cost for future growth. The natural grass stadium field includes a $1.7 million turf management system including full heating, drainage, and aeration capabilities and measures 120 yards (110 m) long by 75 yards (69 m) wide.
A permanent stage was incorporated into the stadium design to not only facilitate hosting concerts but also to be able to quickly change from stage configuration to soccer configuration and vice-versa. A typical conversion takes less than 18 hours to complete, and an additional 8,000 chairback seats can be accommodated on the field for concerts and other stage events.
Toyota announced that it had entered into a 10-year naming rights agreement and the stadium was renamed Toyota Park. [5 ]
