Sports in Illinois

Da Bears, Bulls, Cubs & More


Chicago

Soldier Field

Illinois and the greater Chicago area could easily be described as the mecca of sports in the Midwest. This world-renowned sports town is not only home to five professional franchises, but also holds pivotal roots in the history of the NFL and MLB.

The Chicago Bears, originally founded in 1919, are one of two founding National Football League franchises and the pride of Chicago sports.

The former Super Bowl champions play all home games at historic Soldier Field every fall from September to January. The recently renovated 63,000-capacity stadium has been home to the Da' Bears since 1971.

Major League Baseball has historic roots in Illinois, too. In fact, Chicago is home to two MLB franchises – the Chicago Cubs of the National League and the Chicago White Sox of the American League.

The Cubs have played home games at the world-famous Wrigley Field since 1916. Their cross-town counterpart, the Chicago White Sox, play all home games at U.S. Cellular Field – formerly known as Comiskey Park.

As if that wasn't enough to please passionate, Illinois sports fans, the United Center, is less than five miles from Solider Field in downtown Chicago. The Chicago Bulls have played home games at the United Center since 1994. Structurally the largest arena in the NBA, basketball fans cheer on the former Larry O'Brien Trophy winners every winter from October to April.

Of course, the Midwest is synonymous with ice hockey, and so what would Chicago be without a great pedigree of competitive hockey? Founded in 1926, the former Stanley Cup champion Chicago Blackhawks share their home ice with the Bulls at United Center. Fiery hockey fans catch all of the bone-crunching action every winter from October to April.

Clearly, "sports town" might not be a fitting enough title for Chicagoland. Boasting history and championship pedigree, Chicago sports are truly a must-see.
