A ride on public transportation will be necessary to see the game and allow attendees to get a view of the southwest side of Chicago during the trip.

Here is a link regarding Public Transportation:

“Come cheer on the Chicago Fire on Friday, April 24th against New York City FC. Watch Fire players like Shaun Maloney and David Accam take on David Villa and one of the newest teams in the MLS, NYCFC. Also, it will be $2 beer night at the stadium presented by Heineken.”
