In the midst of the throes of #cf97Withdrawls, the Chicago Fire Foundation have announced the when and where of their Annual Chicago Fire Season Kickoff Luncheon. While the luncheon is an exciting annual event in the lead up to the start of the season, this one is going to be a little extra special - the club will be unveiling the new primary kit for 2014. And if you go to the luncheon, you can be the first kid on your block to have one!
The Fire will also unveil its new 2014 primary kit at the luncheon as part of the second annual MLS Jersey week. All event attendees will have the exclusive opportunity to both see and purchase the kit before its public release.
The new jersey is definitely something a lot of fans are excited about, and the luncheon is a great way to shake hands and take pictures with the coaches and players, but, most importantly, the money raised will be going to the Chicago Fire Foundation.
