Chicago and Milwaukee have an intense rivalry, and that rivalry extends to college basketball as well. DePaul and Marquette have played in the same conference since both were in Conference USA and the rivalry has grown since. The rivalry between DePaul and Marquette mirrors that of the Bears-Packers and Cubs-Brewers, so don’t miss it when the Golden Eagles come to town.
DePaul Blue Demons Stadium Guide
The Blue Demons hope their move to the brand new Wintrust Arena will help breathe new life into the basketball program. DePaul was once home to one of the top programs in the nation but has fallen onto rough times of late. The Blue Demons’ previous facility in Rosemont made it difficult for students to attend and the athletic department hopes the basketball program’s new home will bring out more students and fans.
The new arena is also located on the Near South Side, putting you right near plenty of Chicago attractions including the Museum Park, which is home to the Field Museum and Shedd Aquarium.
The new arena is gorgeous, and with affordable ticket prices, there is no reason for college basketball fans in the Chicagoland area not to check it out.
The DePaul Athletic Department is looking to reinvigorate the Blue Demon fan base and basketball program with a new state-of-the-art arena on the Near South Side. The new Wintrust Arena is a beautiful facility, so come on out and support the Blue Demons in their new home.
You can hear famous PA announcer Gene Honda at Blue Demons men’s basketball games. Honda is known as the PA announcer of the Chicago Blackhawks, Chicago White Sox, and NCAA Final Four. Listen for Honda when attending a Blue Demons game as he’s one of the best in the business.

We will gather, ‘neath the banner,
‘Neath the scarlet and the blue.
While in song we sing your praises,
Praises for old DePaul U.
Let the battle wage and threaten,
Yours the victory to claim.
While we fight beneath your standard
Proud: exulting in your name.
