vs. WFL Teams
The Chicago Winds was the World Football League's ill-fated 1975 successor to the Chicago Fire. The team was so named because Chicago was nicknamed "The Windy City." The Winds played at Soldier Field and the team was assigned to the WFL's Western Division for 1975 (the league having shrunk from 12 franchises to 11, and from three divisions to two).
The DFL Museum needs your Chicago Winds photos, trading cards, newspaper clippings, ticket stubs and personal remembrances for the Permanent Collection.Add Exhibit
