Chicago Mayor Makes Pitch to Springfield For New Bears Stadium

Are the Bears any closer to landing the needed approval of the state legislature to fund part of the building of a new stadium and the infrastructure to go along with it?


Chicago’s mayor Brandon Johnson was at the State House last week to discuss many issues with lawmakers including a new football stadium. Johnson says the current Solider Field is too old and in too much debt to be viable.



The Bears have offered to chip in more than $2 billion to help build a new domed stadium they say will cost $4.75 billion. But including costs outside of just building the stadium – some experts suggest the total cost to tax payers will be close to $6 billion.
