Chicago Stadiums Overview

UIC Pavilion - Arena | Concert Venue in Chicago

With a surplus of sports teams and a large population of entertainment seekers, there is no shortage of amazing Chicago stadiums and arenas featuring the biggest games and events in the country.

When it comes to baseball, Chicagoans are extra spoiled as their city is home to two Major League Baseball teams with the Cubs and White Sox. The Cubs play at Wrigley Field, a storied stadium built in 1914 that holds over 42,000 spectators. The White Sox play at U.S. Cellular Field, a 47,000 person stadium built in 1991. For basketball and hockey, there’s the United Center, a 21,000 seat arena that houses both the Chicago Bulls and Chicago Blackhawks. Football fans, meanwhile, post up at Soldier Field, a 61,000+ seat stadium that’s home to the Chicago Bears and was built back in 1924.

All four sports arenas also feature major events and concerts. Soldier Field hosts massive shows and everyone from U2 and Dave Mathews to Madonna and Wilco have performed there. The United Center has also hosted A-list performers in addition to big-time events like Ringling Brothers and Barnum & Bailey Circus and Cirque du Soleil.

Just outside the city, the Chicagoland Speedway is home to multiple NASCAR and other car races throughout the year, while Toyota Park is where Chicago’s professional soccer team, the Chicago Fire, sets up shop.

With an endless supply of options for both sports and music, stadiums in Chicago provide for non-stop entertainment all year-round.
