Chicago Bandits announce #ChangingTheGame partnership

ROSEMONT — The Chicago Bandits, in coordination with the Chicago Red Stars (NWSL) and Chicago Sky (WNBA) announced Thursday morning the #ChangingTheGame partnership, which will feature a joint ticket package option across all three organizations.

“We are excited to partner alongside two great organizations in Chicago who operate with the same primary goal of supporting women in sport,” Bandits general manager Toni Calmeyn said. “We hope our collaborative effort can bring more fans into NPF, NWSL and WNBA venues in order to further recognition of our world-class athletes.”

As part of the effort to promote women’s sports in Chicago, the Bandits, Red Stars and Sky will offer a $50 home opener ticket package. Fans will receive one (1) ticket to all three teams’ home openers during their respective 2019 seasons, as well as a limited-edition #ChangingTheGame T-shirt.

“The partnership that is being created between three powerful sports teams in Chicago is groundbreaking,” Red Stars owner Arnim Whisler said. “Fans are being given the opportunity to continue to grow the women’s game in three leagues through the NWSL, NPF and WNBA with this initiative. This is just the beginning of an ongoing relationship between three aspiring organizations looking to change the game.”

Tickets will be delivered via email no later than 48 hours prior to each team’s home opener. Times and dates of each event will be announced at a later date.
