Chicago Fire NPSL is an American soccer team based in Chicago, Illinois, United States. Founded in 2007, the team plays in National Premier Soccer League (NPSL), a national amateur league at the fourth tier of the American Soccer Pyramid, in the Midwest Division.

The team plays its home games on the turf practice field at Toyota Park in Bridgeview, Illinois, where the senior Chicago Fire team plays. The team's colors are red and white.


The team began an offshoot of the USISL in the early 1990s, and played for seven seasons in the USISL Pro League and USL Premier Development League, reaching the Conference Playoffs on two occasions before leaving the league at the end of the 2000 season.

The team re-formed in 2007 and played their first season in the National Premier Soccer League in Rockford, Illinois as the Raptors, before moving to Bridgeview and adopting their current name prior to the 2008 season after signing a formal agreement to become an official development program for the Chicago Fire Major League Soccer programme. The NPSL team often shares players with its counterpart in the USL Premier Development League, with players moving from the NPSL team to the PDL team when the NPSL season ends.
