2017 Chicago Fire Goal of the Year

The 2017 Chicago Fire Goal of the Year contest is a wrap, and midfielder Arturo Alvarez was crowned champion!

We narrowed the field to 16 of the season's top strikes, and we asked fans to decide which Fire finish was worthy of this year's top honors by voting in a retro-themed bracket-style competition.
