    Chicago lacrosse fans will have two chances to see the action at Soldier Field for the first time ever this season.

    Lacrosse is coming to Chicago's historic Soldier Field for the firt time ever, the Daily Herald reports.

    The Chicago Machine and the Chicago Park District announced Tuesday that the professional lacrosse team will play two home games at Soldier Field, including its home opener on May 30.

    That opener will also be the first time that Major League Lacrosse has been played in Chicago. The Chicago Machine has played all of its home games at suburban locations during its first three seasons. The second game at Soldier Field will be the final game of the season on Aug. 8.

    "Many of us are used to playing in large stadiums with thousands of fans from our college careers. To bring the pro game to Soldier Field with a chance to shine before a huge home crowd is a great opportunity for our team and our sport," said Machine co-captain and all-star Kevin Leveille.
