About Soldier Field

Soldier Field is the current home of the Chicago Bears in the NFL football league. The stadium located on the south side of Chicago was formerly called the Municipal Grand Park Stadium. It is centrally located closes to other major attractions. The original stadium opened on October 9, 1924. It is owned by the Chicago Park District.

Soldier Field went through a renovation, which included a complete demolition. After two years of being closed, it reopened on September 29, 2003. The stadium's name was changed to serve as a memorial to all American soldiers who had died in past wars. It is also tied to the Great Chicago Fire when it was dedicated on the fire's 53rd anniversary.

Soldier Field is associated with the Chicago Bears. They moved from Wrigley Field to their current home in 1971. Did you know the Chicago Bears originally started in Decatur, Illinois as the Staley Bears? They were moved from Decatur to become the Chicago Bears because the owner of the A.E. Staley Manufacturing Company wanted a football team that would be a contender with other teams.

Another little known fact about the history of Soldier Field is that they raced stock cars in Soldier Field long before the decided to call it home! During the years between 1935 and 1968, car races, midget car racing, and demolition derbies were held weekly in this huge arena. The racetrack started out as a wooden board track and eventually evolved into a paved track.

NASCAR came to the stadium in 1956. That year over 17,000 fans were there to watch a 500-lap race. One more race was held in 1957 when Glen Wood won a 100-lap convertible race. It was a June night in 1968 when the last of the racecar engines were heard in Soldier Field. Several reasons are cited for discontinuing stock car and NASCAR races at the stadium, but it was just an enormous expense to ready the stadium for a race. The owner decided to renovate the field to make it more compatible for football and turns one and two on the racetrack were covered permanently.
