Max McCook Athletic & Exposition
whether you ARE INTERESTED IN RENTING A COURT OR HOSTING AN EVENT, WE'VE GOT YOU COVERED!
The McCook Athletic & Exposition Center (The MAX), opened in 2006, is a 150,000 square foot multi-purpose facility designed to combine the benefits of a full-sized outdoor field with the shelter of a 40-foot high clear-span roof – the first of its kind in Chicago. With such size, comes versatility. The MAX incorporates 80,000 square feet of turf alongside 25,000 square feet of hard court space, broken down into two full-sized main basketball courts, a full-sized private wood court gymnasium, and an elevated private deck court. The facility also houses a baseball/softball academy, three locker rooms, and a 6,000 square foot restaurant space.
The Max recently completed facility updates to make your experiences even better. The Max replaced 80,000 sq/ft of Field Turf. This replacement includes a re-leveling of the base surface and installation of state of the art Field Turf. Examples of the turf can be seen in the new Minnesota Viking stadium and at NRG Stadium in Houston, the site of Super Bowl XLI. This new surface will provide the highest quality playing surface for all of our athletes.
In addition to our turf replacement The Max is updated other areas of the facility. From repainted restrooms, painted walls and renovated floors and New Fencing, The Max is ready to serve your needs for years to come!
Max Staff would like to thank all of our Partners, customers and community for your patience during this project. We are now open and look forward to a great indoor season!!
