The Chicago Sky is one of the newer teams in the WNBA. Founded in 2005, their first season was in 2006, when they posted a 5-29 record. They fared better in 2007, with a 14-20 record. With the addition of rookie Sylvia Fowles from LSU to complement Armintie Price from Mississippi, much is expected of them in the 2008 season.

Many teams in the WNBA are “sisters” to the NBA team n the same city, playing in the same arena and with similar uniforms. However, the Chicago Sky are their own team.

The Sky began league play in 2006. Their home court is the UIC Pavilion, and their games are broadcast on WTTW or WCIU and WVON-AM 1690. Their play-by-play broadcasters are Les Grobstein and Tajua Catchings.

The Sky have had three coaches in their three years: Dave Cowens in 2006, Bo Overton in 2007, and Steven Key now in 2008. The Team President and CEO is Margaret Stender. Minority shareholders include Michelle Williams, from the vocal group Destiny’s Child and Matthew Knowles, father of Beyonce Knowles.
