CHICAGO – The Chicago Red Stars are proud to partner with the Chicago Sky of the Women’s National Basketball Association (WNBA) and the Chicago Bandits of the National Pro Fastpitch (NPF) in an attempt at #ChangingTheGame in Chicago women’s sports.
Chicago is home to three top-level women’s sports teams featuring players who represent both their club and country. Fans can show support for Chicago women’s professional sports in the first step of the #ChangingTheGame initiative with one great deal.
For $50, fans will receive a ticket to the 2019 home openers of the Red Stars, Sky and Bandits as well as a limited-edition #ChangingTheGame t-shirt.
“The partnership that is being created between three powerful sports teams in Chicago is groundbreaking,” Red Stars owner Arnim Whisler said. “Fans are being given the opportunity to continue to grow the women’s game in three leagues through the NWSL, NPF, and WNBA with this initiative. This is just the beginning of an ongoing relationship between three aspiring organizations looking to change the game.”
Tickets will be delivered via email no later than 48 hours before each team’s home opener. Dates and times of each team’s 2019 home opener will be announced by each team in 2019. T-Shirts will be available for pick-up at the Chicago Red Stars 2019 Home Opener.
Join us on Thursday, May 24th for our 3rd Annual Benefit with Tottenham Hotspur Chicago for Connections for Abused Women and their Children. The event will take place at the Atlantic Bar & Grill from 6:30 to 9:30pm and feature games, a silent auction, and a meet and greet with Chicago Red Stars players. Past players have included Sofia Huerta, Danielle Colaprico, Alyssa Mautz, and Arin Gilliland.
This is a great event each year and we’re proud to share in the hosting with Chicago Spurs. Many Chicago Spurs members are Local 134 members as well.
Tickets are $40 for adults, $10 for kids. Limited open bar and appetizers included. We’ll see you there!
The season didn’t end with a win like we all hoped, but we’re proud of the community you’ve helped us create at Toyota Park and we’re excited for next year already. Only 5 or 6 more months!
Thanks to the Chicago Red Stars staff and owner Arnim for a great year and of course thanks to the players as well. We’ll be hosting some events over the off-season to watch our Red Stars play for the USWNT and perhaps W-League matches, if we can figure out how to do that…
Chicago Local 134 invites all Red Stars fans to the tailgate in the North Lot of Toyota Park this Sunday @ 3:00pm. Instead of providing food, Local 134 asks that you bring something to share. All money that would have been used to purchase food will instead be donated to the Houston Dash Harvey Relief Fund in honor of the Dash SG, Bayou City Republic.
Dash player Janine Beckie set up the fundraiser with the following note:
My name is Janine Beckie and I am proud to represent Houston as a member of the Houston Dash, Hurricane Harvey has devastated Houston and South East Texas over the last three days and will continue to have a lasting impact on our community, time is of the essence for the people of Houston that find themselves caught in this disaster. As athletes we have an opportunity to mobilize our resources, contacts, family, and friends to come together and model the most basic obligation we have as human beings: to take care of one another. These are our people, this is our city, this is our home.
Please donate, something small, something large, your generosity will make the difference as we begin to find our city again, one step at a time.
Please speed the word and share our link with the hashtag #HoustonStrong
100% of funds raised will go straight to the Hurricane Harvery Relief Fund created by Houston Mayor Sylvester Turner patnering with the Greater Houston Community Foundation. This money will provide the most pressing needs for Houstonians.
Thank you everyone for your generosity and love! Come together, we are #HoustonStrong.
“Much has been written about the fierce and rowdy Riveters — with anywhere from 1,000 to 1,500 fans in attendance at home games. While they are the largest supporters group in the NWSL, the other nine teams in the league also have supporter groups that are just as proud. Groups like Cloud 9 (Sky Blue), the Spirit Squadron (Washington Spirit) and Chicago Local 134 (Chicago Red Stars) all bring amazing energy to the games.”
See you Saturday for Chicago vs. Houston live on Lifetime from Toyota Park – tailgate starts at 1:00pm!
