At a news conference at the iconic stadium, the Chicago Fire announced an agreement to play at the home of the Bears starting in 2020, ending a 14-season stint in Bridgeview and returning to the 61,500-seat venue in the South Loop. Financial terms of the deal, which runs through the 2022 season with extension options for eight more years, were not disclosed.

The return has been a long time coming. Fire owner and Chairman Joe Mansueto in September told the Tribune he had been working for about a year to move Fire home matches back to the city.
