The Chicago Sky is one victory away from reaching the WNBA Finals for the first time in franchise history.

First and foremost, the Sky must defeat the Indiana Fever in an elimination game on the road Wednesday night.

However, if the Sky advance to the Finals they won't have the opportunity of hosting a game in their own arena.

The Sky announced on Wednesday morning that if they advance to the Finals, all home games will be played at the UIC Pavilion. The venue change is due to the Allstate Arena hosting the Garth Brooks World Tour from Monday, Sept. 8 through Thursday, Sept. 14.

The UIC Pavilion was the home of the Sky from 2006 until 2010 when the franchise moved to the Allstate Arena.

The WNBA Finals begin on Sunday, Sept. 7.
