Today marked the unveiling of the restoration of a 13-year-old mural depicting the storied history of the Chicago Fire on 1030 West 16th street (Carpenter Road an 16th street) in Pilsen.

The restoration, led by local artist Oscar Romero, is part of the Fire’s continued efforts to strengthen relationships within the Hispanic community in support of the Fire’s Hispanic Heritage night match between the Fire and Seattle Sounders FC at TOYOTA PARK on Saturday, Sept. 25 at 7:00 PM CT (My50).

“Soccer is more than just a game,” said Fire Head Coach de los Cobos. “It is an expression of self. This mural not only connects the past and present history of the club, it connects the Fire with the members of this community. I’m very pleased to be here and to help commemorate this exciting depiction of Fire soccer in Pilsen.”
