White Sox Exploring Stadium Options in Chicago’s South Loop

The Chicago White Sox are reportedly eyeing a stadium move to Chicago’s South Loop on land known as “the 78.” The South Side team is in “serious talks” to relocate from Guaranteed Rate Field in Bridgeport to a stadium built on The 78, reported the Chicago Sun-Times.

Developer Related Midwest owns the land which is part of a massive vacant, riverfront development site near Roosevelt Road and Clark Street. Ald. Pat Dowell, whose ward includes the site, said in a statement she will “meet soon” with Related Midwest “to discuss the possibility of a stadium being built for the Chicago White Sox.”

In a joint statement to the Sun-Times, Chicago Mayor Brandon Johnson and White Sox owner Jerry Reinsdorf said they would “discuss the historic partnership between the team and Chicago and the team’s ideas for remaining competitive in Chicago in perpetuity.”
