“By investing over $2 billion of private money in a state-of-the-art, publicly owned stadium on the city’s Museum Campus, the Chicago Bears aren’t just showcasing their dedication to enhancing the fan experience — they’re also proving their commitment to the residents of Chicago. The Chicagoland area is a great place to do business, and this level of private investment only makes our city stronger. With its ability to host events like the Super Bowl and Final Four, as well as international business conferences and high school graduations, a new stadium development would amplify our reputation as a world-class city and a premier tourist destination, bringing many new opportunities to the business community and adding well-paying jobs for Chicagoans.”
