OVERVIEW

Harbour provided Owner’s Representation to design and construct the Chicago Fire Football Club’s stadium, Toyota Park. Toyota Park is the home stadium of the Chicago Fire Soccer Club of Major League Soccer (MLS), the Chicago Red Stars of the National Women’s Soccer League (NWSL), and the Chicago Bliss of the Legends Football League (LFL). Additionally, the stadium has also hosted the Chicago Machine of Major League Lacrosse. Toyota Park was developed at around $120 million, with a capacity of 20,000 spectators and 28,000 concertgoers.

The open-air stadium is predominantly covered seating. The stadium includes 42 executive suites, 6 corporate suites, the Illinois Soccer Hall of Fame, the Chicago Fire offices, 9,000 square feet rentable banquet space, a permanent stage to host concerts with little conversion time. As a result of Harbour’s construction management services, the stadium’s design allows 50% more seating and the 120 yards by 75 yards all-natural Kentucky Bluegrass pitch.

Years later, in 2018 after the end of the Chicago Fire’s 2018 Season, Toyota Park was renamed “Seatgeek Stadium.”

In an excerpt from the Chicago Tribune:

“Chicago is an incredible city for live events, and we look forward to welcoming locals and visitors to SeatGeek Stadium,” company co-founder Russ D’Souza said.

Plans are underway to create more activity around the stadium with the addition of a hotel, new restaurants and retail spaces. A press release announcing the name change also said the Village of Bridgeview and SeatGeek “will work together to bring more live programming to the venue, including premier concerts, music festivals and international sporting events.”

SeatGeek Stadium is located at 7000 South Harlem Avenue in Bridgeview, Illinois.
