The Chicago Fire and Club America of Mexico announced a partnership on Monday that will help both organizations pursue shared objectives and business growth.
Fire president Dave Greeley explained that both clubs, central to the history of their respective leagues, share a passion for the sport, their fans, and developing the game. "This collaboration with America FC will serve as a way for us to reach our objectives in the Hispanic communities, and also to grow our fan base," Greeley said.
The two clubs will collaborate to hold special events, establish business projects, and to run summer camps and clinics in Chicago. The alliance will commence officially on Wednesday with a game between the two, played at Chicago's Toyota Park. The "revenge game" will be held at the Estadio Azteca on a date yet to be determined.
