Professional Sports in Chicago

Chicago is known as a sports town. Welcome to the land of “Da Bears and Da Bulls,” the Chicago Blackhawks, and the home of a legendary crosstown rivalry between the Cubs and White Sox baseball teams, and the birthplace of roller derby. Professional women’s sports include the Chicago Sky and the Chicago Red Stars. Whatever the season, whatever the sport, Chicagoans always have a game to watch and discuss.
