Stadium Information

About Soldier Field:

Technically, Soldier Field is one of the oldest operating stadiums in the NFL dating back to an opening day in 1924 (second to the LA Memorial Coliseum by one year). Some argue that as a result of the significant exterior renovations in the early 2000s, it's not the same stadium anymore. The stadium was actually listed as a National Landmark and de-listed in 2006 as a result of the renovations. Regardless, Soldier Field has a long history of hosting football, soccer, hockey, concerts, and other non-sporting events.
