Sports spring back at SeatGeek Stadium

Spring returns to Chicago Southland, and with it comes the excitement and fun of catching a live sports match!

SeatGeek Stadium in Bridgeview keeps their schedule full of soccer and rugby matches all month. Check out the Chicago Fire FC II, the reserve team for Chicago Fire on Sunday, March 17th and Thursday, March 28th. These games are free, so don’t miss out on seeing some great soccer! You can also head out to the first home game for the Chicago Red Stars, our area’s very own National Women’s Soccer League team on Saturday, March 23rd. If you don’t get your kicks from watching soccer, then check out some action-packed rugby games with the Chicago Hounds, also calling SeatGeek Stadium home, on Sunday, March 24th and Saturday, March 30th.

Outdoor art

When you think of artistic attractions, your mind may go toward art galleries and indoor exhibits, but the Chicago Southland has its share of art displayed in public places – sculptures and statues, murals and memorials in view to be admired. With warmer weather approaching, there’s no better time to take a look at our Get Outside the Gallery travel inspiration before checking out some outdoor art!

On stage this March in the Chicago Southland

While winter is moving on, we’re still susceptible to a few rainy days in the Chicago Southland this spring. When the weather isn’t yet quite inviting enough for spending the day outside, you’ll find that the month of March is filled with musical performances to brighten those gloomy, sloshy days and get you tapping your toes. Check out our On Stage in March blog for info on some of the great concerts and shows this month.

Take a virtual tour

This month, take a virtual tour of Ball Fore Miniature Golf Course and Batting Cages in Chicago Ridge. Check out the 18 holes of championship mini-golf, batting cages and concessions before heading over for your own outing!
