Home to DePaul University NCAA basketball, Chicago Rush arena football, and Chicago Wolves AHL hockey. Before Allstate Insurance paid for the naming rights in 1999, this venue was known as the Rosemont Horizon.

The facility was intended to be the home of the WHA Chicago Cougars, but the franchise folded in 1975. The Village of Rosemont issued $19 million in bonds to finance the cost of the arena with exclusive contracts with Araserv, the Ringling Bros. and Barnum & Bailey Circus, and MFG International.

On August 13, 1979, the uncompleted roof of the Rosemont Horizon collapsed, killing five construction workers and injuring 16 others.
