The 2012 MLS season is almost halfway gone, and entering this week, the Chicago Fire find themselves in solid playoff position in the MLS' Eastern Conference. The Fire are currently in fourth place with 24 points, which means that they would host a first round game in the 2012 playoffs.
In the MLS' new playoff structure, a conference's fourth place team will host the fifth place team for the right to play the first place team in the second round. The good news for the Fire is that they're closer to the third place team in the East than they are the fifth place team.
