Kevin Warren Reiterates the Bears’ Sole Stadium Focus Remains in Arlington Park
I try to steer from politics in this space as much as I can. But when it comes to the Chicago Bears, Soldier Field, and the team’s pending move out to Arlington Heights, it is unavoidable.
With that being said, Chicago’s upcoming Mayoral election will not have any impact on the Bears’ future plans.
“I live downtown in Chicago, so I look forward to meeting the new mayor,” Team President/CEO Kevin Warren said, via the Sun-Times’ Patrick Finley. “But (we’re) continuing to focus on Arlington Park.”
More from the team prez, who continues to drive home that the Bears’ singular focus when it comes to a new stadium is in Arlington Heights:
In other words, if you were hoping Paul Vallas or Brandon Johnson would ride in on a white horse and keep the Bears in town, then I’m sorry to be the bearer of bad news here.
But at the end of the day, I see this as good news. Even though my preference has always been for the Bears to stay in the city, that a new mayor isn’t going to muck things up is reassuring in a way. That the higher-ups are maintaining focus isn’t something I’m used to as a Bears fan. So in a way, this is a welcome bit of news. Now … how about some stuff about breaking ground? I’m getting antsy for actual, tangible Bears stadium news.
