Chicago Fire vs Philadelphia Union

Wednesday, July 11th, 2018

MLS Week 20 | Toyota Park, Bridgeview IL

Kickoff: 7:30pm CT

Referee: Dave Gantar

Assistant Referees: Jeff Hosking, Chris Wattam

4th Official: Fotis Bazakos

VAR: Silviu Petrescu


Tonight is one of those games the Fire have to win if they want to even pretend this season still means something. They’re at home to Philadelphia, one of a handful of teams they’ll have to fend off for a playoff spot. The Union are vulnerable and beatable, but, frankly, so are we. This is an excellent opportunity to start that turnaround the club have been mooting for months.
