WNBA's Chicago Sky Moving to the Wintrust Arena in the Sloop

Seems like a good move for the city and the Sky (via Crains):
Chicago's WNBA team is coming back to the city.
After an eight-year run playing its home games at Allstate Arena in Rosemont, the Chicago Sky will move to newly built Wintrust Arena next to McCormick Place, beginning with the 2018 season.

The Metropolitan Pier & Exposition Authority, which owns and operates the new 10,387-seat home of DePaul University basketball, today approved a new five-year contract with the WNBA franchise to play its 17 home games each season at the Near South Side stadium.
