Chicago Bears purchase Arlington International Racecourse


The Chicago Bears have been playing at Soldier Field since 1971.


Late last night the Chicago Bears notified the city of Chicago that they had a purchase agreement with Arlington International Racecourse.

Located in Arlington Heights, about 35 miles away from the City.

Soldier Field, which is owned by the Chicago Park District, holds 61,500 fans, the smallest capacity in the NFL. The Bears also would be able to develop the 326-acre land around the stadium with shopping, dining and entertainment.
Soldier Field was last renovated in 2002.

The Chicago Bears current lease with the Chicago Park District runs until 2033.

Any new stadium is likely at least four years away, but according to sources the Bears privately warned the season ticket holder board this summer that there's no guarantees on tickets in a new facility.

 Hello, and welcome to my page! My name is Alex Linardos.  Thank you so much for checking out my page! I currently run @MrSouthLoop on both Instagram and Facebook. I've decided to take "MrSouthLoop" to the next level. This is my first ever attempt at a Blog / Website so please bare with me! While I'm still going to post daily on both accounts, I'd like to use this site to expand my voice and connect with neighbors who may not be on social media. I created @MrSouthLoop on September 5th 2020 on Instagram. I wanted to bring a spotlight on our South Loop Community. Since starting @MrSouthLoop, I have really gotten to know the neighborhood and some of its residents. It's truly been an honor. I'm having a lot of fun with @MrSouthLoop and I thank you for the continued support! 

Back to the Movies.

 MrSouthLoop Revisits ShowPlace Icon Chicago Last night I revisited ShowPlace Icon Theatre in the South Loop. Now this wasn't my first visit since the pandemic, it was actually my second one. Despite living literally right behind the Theatre, I tend to see most of my movies at AMC locations throughout the city. I'm an avid moviegoer and AMC offers AMC A List which lets you see up to three movies a week. Anyways, let's get back to covering ShowPlace Icon. On Tuesdays, ShowPlace Icon offers bargain Tuesdays. Tickets purchased online or on the app are $6 and tickets purchased in person are $7. I asked a few friends if they wanted to return to the movies and take advantage of the discount. I purchased Six tickets from the app for our Tuesday evening showing of Promising Young Woman. We ended up having another friend want to join after I already purchased the ticket. So I went back on the app and purchased an additional ticket. Now technically the seat wasn't right next to t
