Fire sell out Club Seats at Bridgeview Stadium

CHICAGO, Ill. - The best seats at the Chicago Fire's new, world-class home of Bridgeview Stadium are off the market prior to the team's first game, as the Fire's Premium Seating Department has announced that all 1,104 seats in the stadium's three Club seating sections have been sold. The Club sections, located at midfield on the stadium's east side, should be full in three days time for the stadium's first event, the Fire's public safety match against the New England Revolution this Sunday, June 11 - a private event that is open only to the Fire's season ticket holders and Village of Bridgeview residents.

"We are obviously extremely pleased that our Premium Seating options at Bridgeview Stadium have been this successful this early," said Fire President/CEO John Guppy. "Everything in this building was designed to create the best possible experience for our fans, and the Club section is an important part of that equation. The fact that our fans have sold out those sections even before they have had a chance to watch a game from them is a testament to the hard work of our sales staff, AEG and the Village of Bridgeview, all of whom deserve great credit for this accomplishment."

The Fire's Premium Seating Department has also announced that 90 percent of Bridgeview Stadium's luxury suites have been sold prior to the start of the Fire's 2006 home schedule, with only a handful of suites remaining available. The remaining luxury suites are still available for purchase for the entire season. After the Fire's Grand Opening match on June 25, suites will be available on a game-by-game basis. For more information on Suites and other Hospitality areas at Bridgeview Stadium - including Party Deck, Rooftop Deck and Club Level availability - please contact the Fire's Director of Premium Seating, Steve DiLenardi, at 708-496-6729 or
