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), and the Chicago Bliss of the Legends Football League (LFL). 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. The stadium's capacity is 20,000.[5]

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 m2).

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.

In 2006, Toyota announced that it had entered into a 10-year naming rights agreement and the stadium was renamed Toyota Park.[6]

Major soccer events[edit]

On September 10, 2008 the stadium hosted a 2010 World Cup qualifying match between USA and Trinidad and Tobago resulting in a 3–0 victory for the US team.[7] On November 27, 2010, Toyota Park was the venue for the 2011 FIFA Women's World Cup qualification match between USA and Italy; USA defeated Italy 1–0 and advanced to the World Cup.[8][9]

Toyota Park was the venue for the 2006 MLS All-Star Game in which the MLS side defeated Chelsea F.C. 1–0.[10]

The stadium also hosted the 2006 Lamar Hunt U.S. Open Cup's final in which Chicago Fire defeated Los Angeles Galaxy 3–1.[11]

Toyota Park hosts annual friendly matches between Chicago Fire and the popular European and Mexican clubs, which in the past included A.C. Milan, Everton, C.D. Guadalajara, Club America, Santos Laguna and others.

Other sports events[edit]

Toyota Park hosted its first international rugby match in 2006, United States vs Munster. In June 2008 the stadium hosted three matches of the Churchill Cup, including United States v. Canada, England v. Scotland, and Ireland v. Argentina. On June 6, 2009 the stadium hosted a 2009 mid-year rugby test series match between United States and Wales in a warmup match for the USA in its campaign to qualify for the 2011 Rugby World Cup.[12] Toyota Park also serves as the home site for Roosevelt University men's and women's soccer matches.[citation needed]

Music events[edit]

Since 2006,[13] Toyota Park has been the host venue for Chicago radio station B96's annual summer concert, The B96 Pepsi Summer Bash.[14] The Crossroads Guitar Festival was held here on July 28, 2007 and again on June 26, 2010. A new three day, all-electronic music festival, Future Sound Dance Music Festival, will be hosted at Toyota Park from May 24–26, 2013.

Accessibility[edit]

Pace operates the #387 Toyota Park Express nonstop from the Midway Orange Line Station for Chicago Fire matches and special events.[15]

Chicago Fire provides luxury bus transportation from five different bar locations in the city to and from the games.[16]
