The Chicago Fire's goal on the field is to play hard and win. Our goal off the field is to contribute to the quality of life in Chicago and its surrounding communities. In order to leverage its resources and expertise in the area of soccer, the P.L.A.Y.S. (Participate, Learn, Achieve, Youth, Soccer) Program was established in 2013. P.L.A.Y.S. has been committed to enhancing the academic performance and development of key social and emotional learning skills of elementary school students and provides a sports-based curriculum and direct service programs to underserved communities. Since the inception, P.L.A.Y.S. has seen more than 200,000 hours of soccer played by more than 3,100 boys and girls in 3rd-5th grade.
Since 1998, the Chicago Fire Foundation, the charitable arm of the Chicago Fire Major League Soccer Team, has made significant contributions to enhance the lives of disadvantaged youth throughout Chicagoland, providing more than $1.8 million back in to the community.
