The Soldier Field was renovated in 2001 and completed in 2003 as home to NFL#25;s Chicago Bears. It holds over 61,000 patrons, the smallest NFL stadium. It was originally deemed the Municipal Grant Park Stadium in 1924 but due to its American soldier memorial was renamed a year later. After its renovation the stadium lost its National Historic Landmark status.
