Construction cost: $13 million
After seeing Wrigley Field on Sunday, I was slightly underwhelmed by Soldier Field on Monday Night Football.
Don’t get me wrong — it was a great experience, the game was great, and it was definitely really loud at different spots in the game. I think I was just so taken back by Wrigley on a beautiful Sunday afternoon that it was a totally different feel for a MNF game.
One thing that did stand out was the immediate (and unsurprising) love for Khalil Mack. If Oakland didn’t appreciate him (most did), Chicago definitely does. He showed up for his first home game with the Bears in a big way and that really got the crowd going.
All in all Chicago was a great city and both Wrigley and Soldier Field were fun to be at.
