The motto of Chicago is simple. "I Will." Coined in the late 1800s, it's a reference to "the determination of Chicagoans to overcome the destruction of the fire and rebuild the city."
Chicago is home to a unique and wonderful soccer community. Chicagoan supporters are fanatical about good soccer and strong tradition. And they don't wait to be told what to do. True to their motto, they roll up their sleeves and do things themselves.
It’s hard to think of a city with a more positive and overt relationship with its flag than Chicago. And why wouldn’t they love it? It’s incredible. The colors, the striking visuals, and the meaning are all there.
The Will celebrates the people that make Chicago great – dedicated supporters who, with their collective effort, define what it means to be a Chicago soccer fan. To the city of "I Will": we support you.
This is something a little different. A collaboration with Chicago's famed Section 8 Supporters Club, all proceeds from sales of The Will are going directly to two great causes: Street Soccer USA, Chicago, and Section 8's Tifo Fund. The shirt is a soft, comfortable tri-blend in navy heather, and features striking red and "flag blue".
