On May 21, the visiting Chicago Red Stars fell 4-0 to Portland Thorns FC.

The match was seemingly over at halftime, when the Thorns led 3-0.

Chicago heads back home to face off against the Orlando Pride at SeatGeek Stadium on Saturday, May 27, at 7 p.m. CT.

—Chicago Fire FC (3-4-6) extended its unbeaten run at home to eight matches with a 3-3 draw against Atlanta United FC (6-4-4) at Soldier Field on May 20.

Despite Chicago playing a man down for 45 minutes (after midfielder Federico Navarro was shown a second yellow card and ejected), the match went back and forth, with the Fire coming back from behind twice in a six-goal thriller along the lakefront to secure a point.

Maren Haile-Selassie and Georgios Koutsias scored directly for the Fire, which got its third score from an own-goal by Atlanta's Juan Jose Purata.

Chicago next heads to Texas to resume its quest for the 2023 Lamar Hunt U.S. Open Cup against Austin FC at 8 p.m. CT on Wed., May 24 at Q2 Stadium. The match will be broadcast via the B/R App or B/R Football YouTube channel.

—Tickets are on sale for The Chicago Nations Cup, a world-class pre-season match between English Premier League Club's Crystal Palace FC and Categoría Primera A's Millonarios FC (from Colombia).

The match will take place at Bridgeview's SeatGeek Stadium—the home of the Chicago Red Stars—at 7 p.m. on Wed., July 26.

The Chicago Nations Cup will mark the return of international soccer to Chicago, which has held several matches over the years involving teams such as Manchester United, El Salvador, Bayern Munich, AC Milan and Paris Saint-Germain.

Crystal Palace fans will be sat in sections 113 through 116 (as marked on the ticketing link.) Millonarios fans will be sat in sections 119 through 122 (again, as marked on the link.)

To purchase tickets, visit www.nationscupseries.com .
