Team Info

Years Active: Fire 1974, Winds 1975
Stadium: Soldier Field

The Chicago Fire played the first season of the World Football League in 1974. The team started off 7-2 and looked to be one of the best teams in the league. After some key injuries, the team went on a 10 game losing streak. The owner was so angered by the collapse, he forfeited the final game and shut down the team after the season. The following season the Fire were replaced by the Chicago Winds. The hopes for both the team and the league were largely dependent on signing Joe Namath.  The team even changed it's uniforms to look like the Jets and assured fans that Namath coming to the team was a done deal. When Namath decided to stay with the Jets, there was virtually no interest in the Winds and the league lost its television deal. The Winds folded after only 5 games and the league folded a few weeks later.
