About the ISA

Section 8 Chicago, the Independent Supporters’ Association for the Chicago Fire Soccer Club, encompasses a number of affiliate supporters groups and independent fans. The vision of the ISA is “. . . to unite all Chicago Fire fans, to create a dominant in-stadium force unseen in any American team sport and to establish a home-field advantage whenever the Chicago Fire play.”

The ISA exists to supplement the efforts of independent fans, coordinate between the supporters groups and act as liaison between fans and the Chicago Fire Soccer Club. As a non-profit organization, a board of directors is elected yearly at the Annual General Meeting in February by the assembled supporters.

Fire Watch Party

If you’re not going to our next away game, there are a number of places to gather with fellow Fire fans for a few pints to watch the match. Specials and merch are usually available, too.


Section 8 Chicago Recommended Bars

The Atlantic Bar & Grill (5062 N. Lincoln Ave.)
Besides regularly hosting Section 8 ISA board meetings, the Irish-inspired Atlantic is fast becoming a fan favorite for catching games. A private, large back room stocked with its own bar hosts our watch parties.

Cleo’s (1935 W. Chicago Ave.)
Our watch party partner hailing from Ukrainian Village, Cleo’s is a great place to huddle and watch a game. When the weather gets warm the outdoor patio deck opens creating a relaxing environment to watch the Fire take three points on the road. You can find great friends and great food and drink specials at Cleo’s.

A.J. Hudson’s (3801 N. Ashland Ave.)
This Lakeview destination has two large rooms in which watch parties are held. The bright blue building on Ashland has hosted official Section 8 watch parties for a couple seasons now with very satisfying results.

The Globe Pub (1934 W. Irving Park Rd.)
The Globe is an old fan favorite that shows every game. If you missed the game, stop by on Monday night where bartender and Section 8 capo Pattrick shows a replay of the most recent (or best) Fire game and hosts the weekly FIFA tournament.

Go Tavern (3219 W. Armitage Ave.)
After years of searching Logan Square & Humboldt Park for a supporter pub location, a group of fans found Go Tavern & its soccer loving owner Mike. It is a typical packaged goods store in some aspects (no one under 21 is allowed), but from 24 beers on draft, to sound on for all Fire games, Go Tavern breaks the mold of your typical “slashie” (bar/liquor store).
