Fan video exposes Soldier Field issues beyond grass originally appeared on NBC Sports Chicago

The rain was impenetrable on Sunday for the Chicago Bears season opener versus the San Francisco 49ers.

It rained all day in Chicago, making for a drenched field and soaked fans all around the stadium. Except, some fans got a little more wet than others.


The rain couldn’t be stopped at Solider field from the 200 level to the 100 level. Hey Lori…this is a reason why the #chicagobears want a new stadium. Crazy day. #soliderfield #chicago #bears #fyp #fypシ #foryourpage

Soldier Field needs to fix its drainage system throughout the stadium. A handful of fans suffered more rain than others. It's as if the fans were under those big buckets of water that dump periodically at water parks.
