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.

#s8ot Away Travel

Over the years, Chicago Fire fans have established a reputation as one of the best-traveled groups in Major League Soccer. Whether in Columbus, Toronto, New Jersey, or California, Fire fans have made pilgrimages to away games a tradition. Away trips are a great way to get out and support the Fire in a foreign environment, see new places, drink new and exciting beer, hear fresh and hilarious chanting, and meet some of the most passionate Fire supporters around.

The ISA organizes trips to most away games. For closer trips, this can include discounted bus transit. All Fire fans are welcome to ride the bus to away games! Please see the links below for further information on away game ticketing and bus trips.
