Welcome to www.Chicago-Fire.com, your new online face of everything Fire and what we hope becomes your preferred home for everything that is soccer in the Chicagoland area!
The new Chicago-Fire.com will serve as one-stop shop for all things soccer here in the Windy City and beyond. Not only will Chicago-Fire.com carry all of the stats, HD video and insider access to aid your support of the Fire, but also it will allow soccer fans like you the opportunity to personalize their soccer experience. Whether it be near-instant Fire replays and video on demand, photo galleries, fan blogs, scores and updates from the 2010 FIFA World Cup in South Africa or events going on in the soccer community, Chicago-Fire.com will be the online home for you that love the beautiful game.
Chicago-Fire.com will feature a number of new functionalities built with the soccer supporter in mind, including live HD video to maximize the online viewing experience and a variety of editorial voices that will provide fans insightful content on the Fire and soccer in Chicago and around the globe. The new site enables supporters to interact with one another in a number of different capacities. Supporters will be able to banter back and forth about the action on the field and participate in online chats with fellow supporters through our club blog, En Fuego.
This new website not only represents a glance into the future of the Fire’s new digital strategy, but also a new era in building upon the tradition, honor and passion behind the Chicago Fire Soccer Club. The Club and MLS have made a significant investment in improving this online experience for you, our supporters. This includes new staff to keep this information fresh, fun, and relevant. Jeff Crandall, for example, will be covering the team with numerous features and stories that will only be found at Chicago-Fire.com. Please check out his latest feature on Brian McBride.
Today’s launch also represents a work in progress – a major initiative like this will surely have its glitches and challenges, so please look at this as the starting point, not the finish line. The Club will do its best to stay on top of the updates and changes that need to be made…but we also want the input of you, our supporters, in the coming weeks to make this the best Fire and soccer experience possible. Please send us your suggestions and let us know what you like – or what you don’t like – about our new site. We welcome your feedback, insight, and perspective. So tell us what you think!
See you at Opening Night on Saturday, April 10th at TOYOTA PARK.
Dave Greeley President, Chicago Fire Soccer Club
