The Chicago White Sox have called Guaranteed Rate Field home since leaving old Comiskey Park. But a new development emerging this week suggests that they might be on the move.

According to a new report from the Chicago Sun-Times, the team is in “serious” discussions to build up a new stadium for the team in downtown Chicago.

MLB Trade Rumors wrote on the report. They said, “The White Sox have had ‘serious’ discussions with a developer about the potential for building a new stadium in Chicago’s South Loop on a parcel of land known as ‘The 78.'”

The report indicates that Chicago Mayor Brandon Johnson and White Sox owner Jerry Reinsdorf admitted to a meeting to discuss ideas in order to keep them in Chicago. The team has been in their stadium for the last 30+ years.

Chicago has seen a recent influx on potential new stadiums. The Bears might be moving from their longtime home of Soldier Field if plans at Arlington Racetrack ever come to fruition. There’s so far no indication that they will anytime soon, but the chatter is out there. A move for the White Sox wouldn’t be unprecedented, obviously. It would represent a new chapter for the team and its fans. Ideally, it isn’t too much of a jolt for Southsiders who passionately root for their team.
