The hometown Major League Soccer team—Chicago Fire Football Club—is hosting its Pride Night game on Saturday, June 26 at Soldier Field.

Chicago Fire FC will host the Philadelphia Union at 7 p.m.

“During Pride Night, the Fire will feature various elements to celebrate inclusion, including using in-stadium pride content. The first 10,000 fans in attendance will receive a pride flag,” the football club said.

“Players will be wearing special 'Love Unites' warm-up shirts during pregame,” they continued.

The special warm-up shirts are for sale on the team's website.

Chicago Fire FC is also raising money for Brave Space Alliance throughout the month of June.

“Brave Space Alliance is the first Black-led, trans-led LGBTQ center located on the South Side of Chicago, dedicated to creating and providing affirming, culturally competent, for-us by-us resources, programming, and services for LGBTQ individuals on the South and West sides of the city,” the football club explained.
