After eight seasons playing at Allstate Arena in Rosemont, the WNBA’s Sky will have a new home next season at Wintrust Arena in Chicago.
The Metropolitan Pier and Exposition Authority on Tuesday announced the five-year agreement that brings the Sky to the South Loop beginning next season.
The Sky will receive revenue from tickets sales, sponsorship deals and WNBA merchandise, a news release said.
The MPEA will receive rent and concession revenue, parking revenue and ticketing fees.
The new 10,387-seat arena, located at Cermak Road and Indiana Avenue, is scheduled to open in September and will host DePaul men’s and women’s basketball games.
