CHICAGO (AP) - Chicago will hold a World Cup viewing party in Soldier Field after previous U.S. games drew tens of thousands to the city’s lakefront Grant Park.

U.S. Soccer and the city plan a watch party on Tuesday afternoon at the stadium where the Chicago Bears play. Soccer fans can watch the U.S. team take on Belgium. Gates open at 1:30 p.m. and the match starts at 3 p.m.

Fans wildly waved American flags and wore red, white and blue at Chicago watch parties in recent weeks for this year’s World Cup.

The earlier U.S. game against Portugal brought about 20,000 fans at Grant Park.
