The Chicago Force is a women's football team that is now in the Women's Football Alliance. Founded in 2003, the team has previously played at De La Salle HS & St. Rita HS - both on Chicago's South side; Lane Stadium at Lane Technical College Prep High School, Holmgren Athletic Complex at North Park University on Chicago's North Side, and at Jorndt Field, commonly known as Winnemac Stadium. The team played the 2012-2014 seasons at Lazier Field on the campus of Evanston Township High School, and the 2015 season, onward, back at Lane Tech.

From their inaugural season until 2010, the Chicago Force was part of the Independent Women's Football League. From that point forward, the team moved to the Women's Football Alliance. The current season schedule, roster, coaching staff, ownership, and game recaps can be found on the Chicago Force Football website (along with past player awards and press/media): www.chicagoforcefootball.com
