"Phenomenal multi-sport facility!"
Facebook User - 5 stars
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 design of the facility lends itself equally to multiple coinciding activities, as well as singular, full-building events. Our annual event mix includes a broad range of private functions and sporting events, from tryouts, practices, and league play to trade shows, expos, spectator shows, and private functions. The entire building is climate controlled to allow for comfortable year-round usage, and complimentary Wi-Fi is available throughout. An over-field viewing mezzanine allows for terrific sight-lines from all locations and creates a comfortable off-field environment for the players, coaches and spectators alike. A full concession and vending area is available for your enjoyment, and our new restaurant venture, Pub at the MAX, will provide an on-site catering and dining solution for local public and facility clients.
