Soccer in the Sun! 5v5 Pickup and Fun at North Ave beachfront!

CFRS


This weekend, Chicago Fire Rec Soccer will be kicking off our inaugural “Soccer in the Sun” event series at North Ave beach. We want to create a Chicago Summer event for you, the fun-loving soccer fan.

Every Saturday afternoon from 1pm - 4pm we will host a Meetup for our soccer fans who want to get the most out of their Chicago Summer experience. We will provide food on our grill and soft drinks, all you need to do is RSVP and have a blast.

Bring some friends or sign up individually and see who will reign as kings of the court. Our 5v5 pickup (winner stays on) will run for the first couple of hours while we get some hotdogs and burgers fired up on the grill. After your games, hop off to enjoy some good food and fun games.

- Grilling out
- Bags (Cornhole)
- Soccer tennis
- Good music over loudspeakers
- FIFA 13 on the Xbox 360 outside!

All skill levels and individuals are welcome. Afterwards, we’ll all jump into the water in Lake Michigan for a cool down.

Our “Soccer in the Sun” event series is a great way to meet new people and fully enjoy summer in Chicago. Let us know how we can make this event series even better - hit us up on Facebook with your favorite beach activities.

The first 10 people who RSVP will take home a CFRS string-bag. Space is limited so sign up today to save your spot. If you have friends that want to come along, but not partake in the fun, there's a $5 door charge. Just leave their name(s) in the comments section below! The more the merrier!

Don’t forget your sunscreen!

    Sam, I have a conflict next week and cannot attend. Thanks.

    I'm at the bridge and no sign of meet up members, can anyone assist?

    • Corey M.

      It was cancelled due to weather.

    • Sam C.

      Hey Aaron, we sent out an email and posted below as well - the weather conditions were not ideal for our first week of "Soccer in the Sun" and we've moved everyone's RSVP to next week!

  • Samuel W.

    Hey everyone, in case you did not see the email - we are moving today's event back a week. The weather conditions at the beach are not good enough for safe and fun play (the surface we play on is wet from rain showers and mist from the lake). I will RSVP you for next Saturday's beach event. Let me know if you have a schedule conflict.
    Sorry for the late notice. Enjoy the rest of your weekend.

      Hey Samuel, I won't be able to make it next week. Hopefully some other time

    I'll probably be "booting" the ball around in Grant Park a wee bit later if anybody is interested.

    June 29, 2013

  • Aggie

    Ugh... I was about 5 minutes away and just received the message.

      Hey Emerson, thanks for the heads up. It'll be $5 at the door, just find me or the other Sam and we'll take care of you!

    What happens if the people who said they are going to bring 5, 7 people forget to rsvp and show up at the event? Do people that rsvp'd get privilege? I'd like to rsvp but concerned about there being too many people.

    June 28, 2013

    • Sam C.

      First come, first serve! If you've got friends, go ahead and RSVP for them as guests and you'll be all set!

  • Mohamad R.

    So if I bring like 7 people are we all on the same team or do we split up?

    June 27, 2013

    • Sam C.

      Hey Mohamed - shouldn't be a problem, we'd love for your friends to join us. Just be sure to either have them RSVP individually or you can RSVP with up to 8 guests.

    Don't wanna be a downer, but how will we know if its rained out?

    June 28, 2013

    • Sam C.

      We'd let everyone know if any decisions are made to cancel or delay this Saturday - for now, things are ON as scheduled.

      June 28, 2013

  • Dawid L.

    can i bring a guest that just wants to watch or do i have to pay for them as well

    June 27, 2013

    • Samuel W.

      Good question Dawid. If you want to bring a guest(s) you can, they will just need to pay $5. Guests will not be able to participate in the games.

      June 28, 2013

  • Dawid L.

    So would it be alright if I would bring 4 or 5 players

    June 27, 2013

    • Samuel W.

      Yes! Dawid, that would be great, just make sure to RSVP each person. If you want you guys can run your own team and we will see if we can knock you off.

    What kind of shoes are acceptable on this pitch? I can't tell if it's on the sand or not..

    June 26, 2013

    • Sam C.

      Not sand, it's a hardened plastic indoor-style surface. Really fast, lot's of touches on the ball. Look forward to seeing you out there this weekend!

      June 26, 2013

  • Samuel W.

    Tennis shoes work the best for me, but I have seen people wearing indoor shoes as well. Any shoes that give you control and allow you to stop quickly. I am really looking forward to Saturday, this is going to be a blast!
