Founded in 2001, the Chicago Rush have qualified for the Arena Football League playoffs every year since, and the team won the ArenaBowl XX championship in 2006. Returning after a hiatus in 2009, the AFL offers fans the experience of witnessing athletic feats of football and hard-hitting action. Played on a 50-yard field that’s surrounded by padded walls, arena football is a much faster game, with offenses posing a scoring threat from any spot on the field. Receivers only need to plant one foot inbounds, and punting is not allowed, making for a head-spinning game of dazzling athleticism that is surely the brainchild of an evil sports genius. Additionally, fans will enjoy Allstate Arena’s classy confines, moderately priced concessions, and family-friendly atmosphere.
A member of the Arena Football League since 2001, the Chicago Rush have embodied excellence from their first year of competition. The team reached the playoffs in each of its first 10 seasons, taking home the 2006 league title in ArenaBowl XX. The Rush vie for control of the National Conference’s Central Division with the support of droves of fans and the Adrenaline Rush cheerleaders. Additional encouragement comes from construction-worker mascot Grabowski, a name coined by Chicago icon Mike Ditka to describe the hard-working, tough nature of the players and the excellent construction of Allstate Arena.
