Looking at a map of the Metro area I would say that Elmhurst is probably the population center of the metro area with an equal amount of people living north, south, east and west. This is a guess but I bet I'm not far off. A stadium located around I 294 and I 290 would not be a bad spot. The CTA could extend the line that runs on the Ike.
Yes, of course there are more people in the burbs, they are spread out around a massive area though in comparison to the city.
There is a reason why nearly all new sports arenas and stadiums are built in cities and not suburbs. The more potential customers within a shorter distance, the better.
