Men's Basketball - Allstate Arena (Rosemont, IL)

DePaul's home since 1980 and renovated in both 1999 and 2004, the Allstate Arena (formerly Rosemont Horizon) was built in 1979 as one of the crown jewels of the village of Rosemont. The $20 million renovation has made the Allstate Arena a state-of-the-art facility. Among the many improvements:

- An additional 45,000 square feet of space in lobbies, upper floor restrooms and customer service areas.
- Enhancement of the overall acoustics.
- Wider aisles and improved sight lines.
- Nearly 7,000 lower level seats were widened and reupholstered.
- Upper level seats were reupholstered.

The Arena hosts more than 150 events annually, attracting an average of 1.5 million audience members to witness some of the world's top musical performers, exciting sporting events and fun-for-everyone family entertainment. With 18,500 reserved seating capacity and 48 skyboxes, the Allstate Arena is one of the largest indoor entertainment facilities in the Chicagoland market. Excellent sight lines from all seat locations, plenty of on-site parking and convenient public transportation make the Allstate Arena a premier entertainment venue.

College basketball has figured prominently in the history of the building. It has been the venue for some of DePaul's biggest victories. In the program's 25 years of playing in Rosemont, it has won an impressive 75.1 percent (250-83) of its games and over 3.2 million fans have passed through the turnstiles to watch Blue Demon basketball. On December 14, 2003, the arena's playing floor was dedicated as the Ray & Marge Meyer Court in honor of the legendary Blue Demon mentor and his wife. The 2004-05 season featured a new playing floor and basket standards, quick strike lighting and a new locker room for the Blue Demons.

The venue has also highlighted the college game on a national stage as well. The Allstate Arena has played host to the 1987 and 1993 Men's NCAA Tournament First and Second Rounds along with the 1996 NCAA Women's Regional Finals. The Allstate Arena proudly served as the host venue for the 2006 NCAA Women's Basketball First and Second Rounds after hosting the 2005 NCAA Men's Basketball Chicago Regional Finals.

Women's Basketball and Volleyball - McGrath Arena

McGrath Arena, housed in the Sullivan Athletic Center on DePaul's Lincoln Park campus was renamed in the Summer of 2006 in honor of a pair of former members of the DePaul athletics family. Opened in the Spring of 2000, the facility was originally named the DePaul Athletic Center until July 22, 2006, as the facility was renamed the Sullivan Athletic Center to memorialize the achievement of legendary DePaul athletic director and visionary Gene Sullivan. Though his tenure was relatively short, his impact has been long lasting. One of Sullivan's legacies is that of inclusion, providing enhanced opportunities for minority student-athletes and women.

Sullivan's vision in the emergence of cable television probably is his greatest legacy at DePaul. As a result of his forward-thinking, nearly a generation grew up watching nation-wide broadcasts of Blue Demon men's basketball, assisting in DePaul University's emergence into the largest Catholic university in the United States.

McGrath Arena is the heart of the Sullivan Athletic Center. The arena was dedicated in honor of Frank McGrath, legendary DePaul assistant men's basketball coach and administrator. Frank McGrath served DePaul for more than three decades first as an assistant coach to Blue Demon legend Ray Meyer. His legacy was one of hard work, loyalty and dedication. McGrath's role as an assistant athletic director and director of facilities cemented his place in DePaul's history. Prior to working on Meyer's staff, he was an accomplished prep coach at DePaul Academy and Weber High School.

Opened in April of 2000 on the Lincoln Park campus, the Sullivan Athletic Center features sophisticated training and sports medicine equipment, three full-sized basketball courts and room to plan winning strategies. All of this gives DePaul student-athletes the competitive edge on and off the court. These facilities, combined with the escalating success by all of the Blue Demon teams, tell prospective student-athletes that when they choose DePaul, they commit to excellence. While the facility is going to lead to new and exciting milestones for the Blue Demons, DePaul's tradition is also on display. The history of success is evident as visitors step into the main concourse of the fan-friendly building. Alumni will feel the excitement of past victories as they explore the trophies and awards in the Hall of Fame. The students, faculty, staff, alumni, the Lincoln Park community, the new fans we'll attract, and all who experience this new building will understand DePaul's commitment to excellence.

Men's and Women's Soccer - Wish Field

With the Chicago Transit Authority's "L" trains rumbling by every few minutes, Wish Field is a one-of-a-kind facility that gives a true urban setting for the Blue Demon soccer programs. Wish Field is nestled in the heart of DePaul's Lincoln Park campus and is the home to the DePaul men's and women's soccer programs. Surrounded by McCabe Hall, Courtelyou Commons and Corcoran Hall, Wish Field is located on Belden Ave. just east of the Fullerton "L" station.

Prior to the 2005 season, the facility received a complete facelift with a FieldTurf surface installed, a soccer-only press box, new scoreboard and team benches. The setup is unique in that the DePaul softball program is able to use the field in the Spring when the FieldTurf tray system allows the facility to be converted into a softball field. Available for use year-round, the Blue Demons are able to train and compete throughout the entire year.

Softball - Cacciatore Stadium

Cacciatore Stadium is the home to DePaul's nationally-recognized softball program. The facility recently went through stadium renovations that were made possible by a $1 million gift from Vic and Charlotte Cacciatore and Family. The Cacciatore Family gift is the largest gift in the history of DePaul athletics.

The first phase of renovations, which included a new field, covered dugouts and enhanced batting cages was completed in 2005 and when the project is complete, it will feature a working press box and permanent seating for 1,000 people in a stadium atmosphere. The unique multi-use facility converts to a soccer field in the fall for the Blue Demons' men's and women's soccer programs.
