Reimagine Soldier Field Coalition

Soldier Field Renovations

Chicago, IL

The oldest stadium in the NFL, Soldier Field, opened in 1924 and today hosts an estimated 194 events welcoming 1.4 million people annually. The stadium is an icon in the City of Chicago and the sports world. A business, civic & community coalition is exploring options to modernize the stadium to deliver a world-class venue and an exceptional new experience to Chicago’s spectators. Soldier Field currently has two primary tenants—the Chicago Bears and the Chicago Fire of Major League Soccer—and regularly hosts major concerts and other entertainment events. One of EwingCole’s proposed renovations, designed in collaboration with Landmark Development, includes a new domed roof and enclosure envelope, providing a climate-controlled environment for fans and event-goers. The facility features multiple design concepts for hosting special events and expanded seating and amenities to enhance the guest experience. The plans ensure Soldier’s Field’s year-round use, a comfortable environment throughout the year, and the possibility of increasing capacity to 70,000 for specific events. For more, click here:
