Fire, AEG and Village of Bridgeview Celebrate Historic Day
After announcing plans for the construction of a world-class stadium for soccer, concerts and special events earlier this year, the Chicago Fire, its parent company, AEG, and the Village of Bridgeview today held the ceremonial groundbreaking for Bridgeview's new $70 million, 20,000-seat sports and entertainment stadium. The venue will house the Major League Soccer team permanently in Chicago's Southland region starting in the Spring of 2006.Yea for Chicago! I may not be a fan of the Fire, but I remember my excitement when Crew Stadium was built, and as a soccer fan, I see the need for more soccer-specific stadiums in MLS!

Decision obvious for Donovan Good luck to Donovan! I hope that this experience in Germany will be good for him and for American soccer.
