Bridgeview’s multipurpose venue was renamed SeatGeek Stadium during a ribbon cutting ceremony Thursday, with officials from the village and venue promising to bring news entertainment performances. The venue is already home to the Chicago Fire and Chicago Red Stars. SeatGeek is a mobile-focused ticketing platform that provides tickets to sporting events, entertainment and concert performances throughout the country. Formerly called “Toyota Park,” the new SeatGeek Stadium is the first to carry the online ticketing company’s name. Officials from SeatGeek said they will work with Bridgeview to bring in more big name entertainers in coming years to the stadium which was first built in 2006 and is the home stadium for the Chicago Fire, who host its first home game this season on Saturday. Major events scheduled in the coming months in addition to Chicago Fire and Red Star games includes music festival Chicago Open Air, the Nitro Circus Live and a visit from the new Premier Lacrosse League.
