The Chicago Winds was the World Football League's successor to the Chicago Fire. 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 Winds were kicked out of the league after just five games for failure to meet capitalization requirements.
