MATCHDAY INFO: March 16 Chicago Fire vs Seattle

Matchweek 3 sees the Chicago Fire against that team from Seattle (aka the old Atlanta). Excitement for the team is building with the Fire coming off of a late equalizer from CJ Sapong and Section 8 Chicago will be at the stadium bright and early preparing for the match, slinging dogs, and selling merch.

Tickets: Tickets for the Harlem End, 208 and 137/138 are available at $20 each. Ticket and scarf packages are available at $30 in the Harlem End. Ask anyone that’d bought one of these packages. They’re one hell of a deal!

Tailgate:
Once again, Section 8 Chicago is hosting this early season tailgate providing tubed meat delights (Chicago style, duh). Vegan options, verified by two real-live vegans, are also available. For those of you 21 and up, donations to the Food Drive often can elicit a thank-you beverage from friendly community members.  Would you or your supporters club like to host a tailgate? Dates are available. Get at a board member or email us.

Getting to the stadium: 

The Reggie’s Bus rides again. Single rides and season passes are available. Check out their totally awesome scarves too. Pub to Pitch also offers coach bus rides from a wide variety of locations throughout the city. Per city laws, no drinking on the busses (we’re upset by this too, trust us).

Merch:

Merch Director Nate will be kicking it at the S8C tailgate near the Pods. Heavyweight crew neck sweatshirts were clutch last match. We also will have the distinctive Full Power HD, Niko, and other fresh scarves. Come see us. Cash and credit accepted. Keep your eyes on Section 8 Chicago’s merch Twitter for teasers and updates on the new stuff coming in soon. We’ve seen the designs, they’re going to be very Rad.

Weather:

It can’t be worse than last week, right? RIGHT? Looks like we’ll dodge the rain as of this writing but last week’s match was a reminder that it always feels colder out at 71st and Harlem. Take it from this writer, longjohns and gloves with full fingers will be in full effect. Also, pro-tip: you can get sunburned even when it’s cold. It looks like it will be sunny.
