Chicago, Ill.- The UIC men's soccer team hosts the Chicago Fire at Flames Field this Wednesday, April 16 at 6 p.m. in a friendly to benefit America SCORES Chicago and the FireWorks for Kids Foundation.
Fans can purchase tickets in advance at a special reduced rate of $10 online until midnight tonight (Tuesday, April 15) by clicking here.
Tickets are available at the Flames Field gate for $12. UIC students can buy tickets at the gate for $10 with a valid i-Card.
Flames Field is located on UIC's South Campus, just behind the Physical Education Building at 901 W. Roosevelt Road.
Proceeds from the ticket sales benefit America SCORES Chicago, an afterschool program based on writing and soccer.
Parking for the event is available for a fee at the Maxwell Street Parking Garage at 1300 S. Union. Limited street parking is available around the field.
This is the second straight year that the Flames and the Fire will play at Flames Field to support worthy causes for kids. If last year's match was any indication, Wednesday's tilt is one that cannot be missed.
The Fire fielded its entire Starting XI last year against the Flames, who went on to advance to the Elite Eight of the NCAA Tournament for the first time in school history last fall.
