Sky to raise championship banner on May 24th against Indiana


The Chicago Sky announced plans to celebrate the franchise's first WNBA Championship on their home court.

The Sky will hold a ring ceremony and raise a championship banner to the rafters of Wintrust prior to their game against the Indiana Fever on May 24. The ceremony is a little over seven months since the Sky beat the Phoenix Mercury to clinch the league crown.

Sky general manager and head coach James Wade said in an official team release detailing the pre-game plans that the ceremony will represent "a bridge that connects 2021 to 2022."

"Momentum is about confidence - and now if there are ever times we lack confidence, the only thing we have to do is look up," Wade continues.

The Sky head into the 2022 season with most of the 2021 championship core intact. Recently the team re-signed three of those players in Allie Quigley, Courtney Vandersloot and 2021 Finals MVP Kahleah Copper. The team has also signed 2019 WNBA Finals MVP Emma Meesseman, becoming the first WNBA franchise to sign Finals MVPs in three consecutive seasons.

Single-game tickets go on sale at 11 a.m. on March 15, and can be purchased through Ticketmaster and the Wintrust Arena box office. The Sky begin open the 2022 season on May 6 at Wintrust Arena against the Los Angeles Sparks, and will also host the New York Liberty on May 11 prior.
