Root for the Home Team
Take your attendees to cheer on the home team at SeatGeek Stadium, home to the Chicago Fire Womens Soccer Team. Take advantage of the stadium’s meeting space for that important board meeting and then take them to a match to watch the game like the VIPs they are.
During the summer months, treat your group to a night out at Standard Bank Stadium to root for the home baseball team—the Windy City ThunderBolts. From pre-game and all-you-can-eat picnics for up to 300 people to executive suites for groups up to 50 people—including a catered meal and recognition of your group during the game—a night at the ballpark is an affordable and fun option for your group in Chicago Southland.
