About Us

The Fire Juniors are the official youth soccer clubs of the Chicago Fire. The Fire Juniors Youth Club model was the first youth program of its kind in Major League Soccer (MLS) and today includes more than 4,000 travel players nationwide.


Established in 2004 as the official youth soccer club of Major League Soccer's Chicago Fire, the Chicago Fire Juniors are the only professionally based youth soccer club in the United States. The Chicago Fire Juniors are part of the Chicago Fire (MLS) Player Development Program and are an integral piece of the Player Development Pyramid. This "Pyramid" creates a progressive developmental structure providing players the opportunity to move from introductory play, competitive play and elite youth play into professional development programs (Super 20, NPSL, PDL) - finally, onto the Fire MLS team. The Chicago Fire Juniors, in association with the Chicago Red Eleven of the women's W-League, replicate the Player Development Pyramid for females by providing young ladies the opportunity to play at a high level.
