The Chicago Fire Soccer Club announced today that it has traded
defender Tim Ward to San Jose Earthquakes in exchange for a conditional
selection in the 2011 MLS SuperDraft. Per MLS and club policy, terms of the

“We would like to thank Tim for his contributions to the Chicago
Fire and wish him the best of luck in his future endeavors,” said Fire
