The Chicago Bears are getting ready to make some bold moves with their 2016 NFL Draft, and one of the big ones is the addition of a new, state-of-the-art stadium.
The Bears announced the plans on Thursday for a $400 million new facility for the NFL.
The stadium will be built in downtown Chicago, the Bears’ hometown, with plans to open in 2021.
It will seat 1,200 people, which is larger than the 1,000-person capacity of the team’s current home in Chicago’s Soldier Field.
The team will have an indoor practice facility, an indoor football practice facility and an outdoor practice facility.
The facility will be used for both indoor and outdoor football.
The new stadium will include a hotel, restaurants and bars, along with parking for up to 1,400 cars, according to the Bears.
The Chicago Sun-Times reports that the stadium is expected to cost $250 million, with the Bears receiving an $80 million loan from the state.
