Under the newly minted leadership of 2010 Euroleague champion and Final Four fixture Pokey Chatman, the Chicago Sky’s seasoned hoopsters promise an exhilarating sixth season. Fans can brandish laminated welcome banners for fresh talent, such as point guard Courtney Vandersloot and Tennessee's Michelle Snow, while raining roses on returning basket baroness Sylvia Fowles, an All-Star center and mediocre grilled-cheese chef. Fans can engage in a slew of pregame activities, which include a 5:30 p.m. tailgating on June 10, a military festival on June 17, and a green-focused event on June 25, featuring WNBA legend Diana Taurasi.
The 'K' of the Chicago Sky's logo towers above the other letters, two thin prongs poking out from the top—a nod to the most famous of the city's iconic buildings. Fittingly inspired by the Chicago skyline, the Sky's uniforms have represented the Windy City since 2005. In those years, some of the WNBA's top players have donned the blue and yellow threads, including 2015 MVP winner Elena Delle Donne, back-to-back Sixth Woman of the Year Allie Quigley, and seven-time All-Star Cappie Pondexter. The squad is currently led by Pokey Chatman, who enters her sixth season as the team’s head coach and GM.
Chicago Sky is also committed to inspiring future generations by showing some of the best female athletes in the world, delivering high-quality and affordable family entertainment through positive role models who lead both on and off the basketball court, while giving back to the Chicagoland community.
