The Chicago Sky is a professional basketball team based in Rosemont, Illinois, playing in the Eastern Conference in the Women’s National Basketball Association (WNBA). The team was founded before the 2006 WNBA season began. It is owned by Michael J. Alter (principal owner) and Margaret Stender (minority owner).
Like some other WNBA teams, the Sky is not affiliated with an NBA counterpart, although the Chicago Bulls play in the same market.
The Sky clinched their first playoff berth in team history on August 23, 2013 and their first WNBA Finals appearance on September 3, 2014.
