Chicago Fire Host Heineken Designated Driver Challenge Rivalry Match


Supporters who attended the June 24, 2015 Chicago Fire match versus D.C. United at Toyota Park enjoyed a hard-fought game, and even though the Fire came up short, supporters scored a victory off the field by pledging to be responsible.

Hundreds of supporters helped the Fire earn points in their Heineken Designated Driver Challenge against D.C. United. These supporters pledged to be the designated drivers for their group, autographed a larger-than-life responsibility ball and received a free souvenir photo.


Each designated driver is worth one point in the competition. The Designated Driver Challenge winner will be the club with the most points at the end of the season. Click here to see the Challenge Standings.

• In 2013, 10,076 people were killed as a result of alcohol-related (BAC > 0.08) car crashes, a decrease of 2.4% from the 10,322 fatalities in 2012.

• Many, if not most of those lives would have been saved if people did not drive when they were impaired by alcohol or if they used sober, designated drivers or if they simply wore their seat belts.

• Statistics and research clearly show that 21-34 year old males are the demographic most likely to be involved in an automobile crash, drive when impaired by alcohol, and fail to buckle up.
