Soldier Field located in Chicago, Illinois broke ground in 1922, and after almost two years later it originally opened on October 9, 1924 as the Municipal Grant Park Stadium.
Originally Soldier Field had the capacity of upholding more that 74,000 viewers, however this count could be extended up to 100,000 when additional seating was stretched upon the open field of the stadium. On September 08, 1954, Soldier Field held the biggest crowd of 260,000 with in its vicinity in its entire history.
Soldier Field is currently home to NFL"s Chicago Bears who became stadium"s permanent tenant in the September of 1971. Also in 1971, following the arrival of Bears to the Soldier field, the surface of the stadium was changed to turf from plain grass surface. Prior to that Soldier Field hosted a number of sporting as well as other sorts of events.
By that time the seating capacity of the stadium was dropped down to 57,000 only as a new grandstand was built in order to bring the fans nearer to the sporting action. However, by 1994 the seating count of the stadium was raised up to 66,944 seats.
The field was originally termed the Municipal Grant Park Stadium, however later on November 11, 1925 the name was changed to the Soldiers Field in order to honor the U.S Military Soldiers who died in wars.

On January 19, 2002 the stadium was shut down to under go a major Renovation, in which the entire Stadium was rebuilt. Prior to the beginning of the renovation process, among critics and fans, all have different opinions. Some were against this major overhaul, while some thought that it is necessary as the facility was becoming a bit obsolete as of the current needs.
The entire rebuilding process was completed in 2003, and the stadium was reopened on September 29, 2003.

Later the board track was turned into a dirt track and held only NASCAR race in 1956. Stadium was also site for The Grateful Dead"s live concert on July 09, 1995, which also featured band"s lead guitarist Jerry Garcia, who died almost after a month from that performance.
