    Some would say that Soldier Field is the oldest NFL stadium and some would say it’s one of the newer stadiums. The original stadium opened in 1924 and was called Municipal Grant Park Stadium. It closed January 2002 - September 2003 for renovations. The historical Greek colonnades and the outside exterior shell were reserved with the rest of the stadium being demolished. The “new” Soldier Field reopened in 2003. Changing the name to Soldier Field in 1925, the stadium serves as a memorial to the fallen soldiers of the past wars. The formal dedication took place in 1926 during the Army vs Navy game. The Chicago Bears made the move from Wrigley Field in 1971 making it their home. The field has been natural grass for the better part of its existence except for a six year period (1971-1987) when it was Astroturf. The capacity of the stadium is 61,500.

    • This is Chicago's mistake by the lake. Limited parking, below average concessions. Smallest stadium in the NFL. And in December, try to avoid frostbite. If Indy has a retractable roof why are we playing outdoors in Chicago? Good view from almost any seat. Way over priced.
