The Chicago Bears have played at Solider Field since 1971. It is a historic venue full of plentiful Bears history. However, the Chicago mayoral committee is prepared to make a major change to the stadium, per

A Chicago mayoral committee is “poised to recommend that the city ‘explore the feasibility' of putting a dome atop Soldier Field in an effort to make the facility more attractive to potential users,” including the Bears. But the “dome ‘almost certainly' will require some sort of taxpayer subsidy.”

Solider Field could be getting a dome. However, this news comes on the heels of reports that the Bears could be getting a brand new stadium. Churchhill Downs Inc. CEO Bill Carstanjen commented on the Bears potentially getting a new stadium, per the Chicago Sun Times.

“Although we are sad to close Arlington Park and would have loved to continue racing and investing in the region, we believe that the Chicago Bears will ultimately develop this prime real estate into a world-class stadium and development, with numerous amenities for fans and residents to enjoy over the coming decades.”

The Bears are aiming to return to contention in 2022. They have young quarterback Justin Fields leading the way at quarterback. Meanwhile, Chicago's running back duo of David Montgomery and Khalil Herbert will be crucial as well.

It will be interesting to see what the final verdict is on the Bears' future home. Bears fans would miss Soldier Field, but getting a new stadium could provide the fan base with newfound excitement. But there is a possibility the team remains at Soldier Field with a dome.
