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.

VOTE! 2016 Supporters’ Player of the Year

SPOY 2016 #cf97

Let’s just get this out of the way early: 2016 has been another tough season for Chicago Fire players and fans.

That said, who ya got? Which player worked hard and never quit? Who rose above the fray to make your hair stand on end and dream of the possibilities of better times? Our club’s creed is “Tradition, Honor, Passion”: who exemplified those traits on and off the field day in and day out?

This is your chance to let your choice be known. Since 2009, Section 8 Chicago has recognized the player who you, the supporters and fans, deemed most worthy of being called “Player of the Year”. The Section 8 Chicago ISA will donate $1000 in that player’s name to a charity of their choice.

Click the link below to vote, and share the link with your fellow supporters. We ask you only vote once and choose wisely. Voting ends on Sunday, October 30 at midnight.

Oh, and one more thing: An award deserves a party, right? Stay tuned for details of the 2016 Supporters’ Player of the Year award party!
