Watch headquarters established for fans
Alumni and fans of Illinois State Athletics looking for a place to watch the Redbirds with other ISU fans now have an opportunity, thanks to the Illinois State Comcast SportsNet Chicago Watch Headquarters.
Redbird Athletics has identified 10 locations as watch headquarters for the Redbirds, and are looking to add more.
Each specified location will always have Illinois State games on when Redbird games are being broadcast.
The local watch headquarters in Bloomington-Normal include Buffalo Wild Wings, Pub II, and Times Past Inn. The Buffalo Wild Wings on Wabash Avenue in Springfield, is another select Illinois State Comcast SportsNet Chicago Watch location.
For the Illinois State Chicago alumni, Four Farthings at Cleveland Avenue and Lincoln Avenue has access to ESPN3, as well as The Stretch Bar & Grill on Clark Street in Wrigleyville.
In addition, there are four TGI Friday locations committed to showing Illinois State telecasts. The restaurants are located at 15407 South La Grange Road in Orland Park; 153 East Erie Street in Chicago; 151 East Townline Road in Vernon Hills; and 1695 East Golf Road in Schaumburg.
