- The Chicago Bears football team makes their home at Soldier Field. The stadium, located along Chicago’s famous Lake Shore Drive is only a short distance from Chicago’s downtown loop area. Its stunning lakefront setting on Lake Michigan often challenges opponents with Chicago’s notoriously fickle weather that includes blustery gusts of offshore winds that has given Chicago its famous name, “The Windy City”.

The history-making six-time NBA champions reigned supreme in 1991, 1992, 1993, 1996, 1997 and 1998 under the coaching of Phil Jackson and the stellar on-court leadership of the legendary greatest player of all time, Michael Jordan.
