It's winter and you may be more focused on the Bears, Bulls and Blackhawks as the calendar winds down 2010, but today, the MLS Chicago Fire announced that they'll be hosting a home game during the month of March for the first time -- even earlier than the Cubs will open their season at home on April 1 or the White Sox home opener on April 7.â†µâ†µ
The Fire will host Kansas City at 3 p.m. on Saturday, March 26, a week after playing their first game of the season at Dallas, Saturday, March 19 at 7:30 p.m.â†µâ†µ
The only other games announced as of now are two matches involving the opening of new soccer stadiums, on April 14 at Portland and on June 9 at Kansas City. The entire Fire schedule will feature 34 games, two matches each against each of the other 17 MLS teams.â†µâ†µ
The full MLS schedule will be announced in February.
