About Soldier Field
Soldier Field in Chicago has a long history as the arena that acts as the lair of the Chicago Bears. Opening in 1922, its first incarnation had a style that harkened back to the amphitheatres and coliseums of Ancient Greece and Rome, with Doric columns at the entrance. Soldier Field is still the place to watch the Chicago Bears play on their home turf, along with several concerts by artists such as Bruce Springsteen, The Eagles, deadmau5, The Grateful Dead and Pearl Jam, among others. The problem of finding a place at Soldier Field parking lots is almost always a challenge, as the Bears and musical guests always put their best foot forward. For a number of years, there were talks regarding a modern replacement for Soldier Field, but none came to fruition; the place where the Bears sleep and play was the place where they would remain. Soldier Field was renovated in 2003, despite criticism as potent as withering artillery fire. This renovation modernized the Stadium for the twenty-first century, but it polarized fans and the public about the so-called “Spaceship on Soldier Field.” Despite the fracas, fury and fulmination, it can still be quite difficult to find find a spot in the Soldier Field parking lot. Luckily for every fan who loves the Orange and Blue, ParkWhiz can make his Bears experience much easier by assisting him in reserving his parking space well in advance of the game.
The Chicago Bears have a storied history, but their origin is rather surprising. Before they became one of the founding teams of the NFL they were known as the Decatur Staleys, a football club started by the now-defunct A.E. Staley food starch company. After the legendary George Halas purchased the rights from the proprietor of A.E. Staley for $100, the name of the food starch company was removed, and they were soon reborn as the Chicago Bears. The name of the team came from their genesis in Wrigley Field, the Chicago Cubs. Prior to the merger of the American Football League and the National Football League in 1970, the Chicago Bears won the NFL Championship in 1921, 1932, 1933, 1940, 1941, 1943, 1946 and 1963. Following the merger, they won the fabled Super Bowl XX under the stewardship of Mike Ditka, the Chicago Bears parking the ball and racking up the points. The team was so confident in its victory that they composed and performed the Grammy-winning Super Bowl Shuffle three months before the 1985 Super Bowl. The fact that they won despite the gamble made the song even more famous. The 1985 Chicago Bears were great at the Super Bowl Shuffle, but you don’t want to be doing the Soldier Field Parking Shuffle.
