Mayor Lightfoot Issues Statement Ripping Chicago Bears Football Team Amid Relocating Rumors

Chicago Mayor Lori Lightfoot blasted her own city’s football team after the organization announced it made a bid for land in Arlington Heights with plans to possibly build a new stadium there.

Lightfoot tweeted a statement, stating “The Bears are locked into a lease at Soldier Field until 2033. In addition, this announcement from the Bears comes in the midst of negotiations for improvements at Soldier Field.

“This is clearly a negotiating tactic that the Bears have used before.”

One Twitter user fired back to Mayor Lightfoot “It’s the worst stadium in the nfl and parking/traffic is a complete mess.

“I much rather have a beautiful huge stadium that allows us to hold events other than concerts and all that.

“You’re wrong on this one.

“It’s what the fans want”
