Chicago Fire announce 2022 schedule

New, comment

The 34-game schedule features a home-and-away with every team in the East, and eight matches against select teams from the West

The Chicago Fire’s 34 game regular season schedule is out for the 2022 MLS regular season. Here are some quick notes:

  • Chicago will play 17 home games and 17 road games. The Fire play each Eastern Conference opponent twice (home and away), and play eight matches against select teams from the West: FC Dallas, Houston Dynamo FC, LA Galaxy, Minnesota United, San Jose Earthquakes, Seattle Sounders FC, Sporting Kansas City, Vancouver Whitecaps
  • The Fire host the LA Galaxy for the first time since 2018
  • At least five matches will be on national TV, including the April 23 away match against Minnesota United, which will be on ESPN (the club’s local TV announcement will come at a later date)
  • Chicago visits Charlotte FC for the first time on Aug. 6
  • There are only five mid-week games: two at home, and three on the road
  • The early start to the schedule is to accommodate the FIFA World Cup in Qatar, but it has an added benefit: with the regular season ending Oct. 9, there’s less conflict with the Chicago Bears, meaning the schedule is far more balanced than last season
