|Wrigley Field- Where Both the Bears and Cardinals Once Called Home|
In the first professional game at the then-mammoth stadium, the Bears defeated the Chicago Cardinals 10-0 on November 11, 1926. Since that time, the Chicago Cardinals played at various times at Soldier Field during those periods when their other home fields- Comiskey Park or Wrigley Field, were not available.

Plans for the stadium started in 1919 as a memorial to the soldiers of WWI. Soldier Field stood on 10,000 pile foundations driving an average depth of 62.5 feet through fill that replaced the lake waters. The new stadium continues to be owned, maintained and operated by the Chicago Park District.
