The Chicago Red Stars refuse to fade away.

Left for dead over the winter when they couldn’t find enough investors to remain in Women’s Professional Soccer for the upcoming season, the Red Stars revived to join the semipro Women’s Premier Soccer League. They will play their home games at Benedictine University in Lisle instead of Toyota Park in Bridgeview.

“The main thing was the owners wanted to keep the Red Stars alive,” one of those owners, Arnim Whisler, said before the team’s first practice Wednesday. “They wanted to make sure that we continue to provide something for the father-daughter-young girl fan base, to continue to see their stars and their heroes. This was the best fit between affordability, quality of play and schedule availability.”
