Calling all avid soccer fans! While the Chicago Fire may not be your team of origin, be sure to check out the organization's "Pub to Pitch" program throughout the regular season. Nine neighborhoods pubs participate, so find your local soccer community and head down to a match!
How it works:
If you don't feel like driving to the Toyota Park stadium or don't have a car, Pub to Pitch is ideal. For $15 ($10 for season ticket holders), you can reserve a spot on a bus for fellow MLS fans. Transport is provided from your local pub to the stadium and back. Tickets to individual games are also available with the purchase of a bus ticket. Find your nearest Pub to Pitch location here (Kroll's South Loop is the closest to Hyde Park). The best part: food and drinks are allowed on the bus (no bottles; cans only).
