History[edit]

In 1914, Bricklayers joined the Association Football League of Chicago. According to Dave Litterer, “the ALFC [sic] welcomed one of the major regional powers to its ranks - the Bricklayers”.[1] At some point, Bricklayers jumped to the Illinois State Football Association League, winning the 1917-1918 championship. In 1920, Bricklayers was in the Chicago and District Soccer League, better known as the Chicago Soccer League. Bricklayers won the 1921 CSL championship. In the late 1920s and early 1930s, Bricklayers competed in the Chicago Building Trades League. The team continued to compete until 1947 when it folded.
