    Sears Centre Arena

    EVANSTON, Ill. -- The 2017 Ken Kraft Midlands Championships will be held at the Sears Centre Arena in Hoffman Estates, Illinois, due to the ongoing $110 million renovation of Welsh-Ryan Arena.

    The prestigious two-day event will be the 55th annual and will take place December 29-30, 2017.

    Last year's competition had the biggest field ever and featured 71 ranked wrestlers, including 38 that were ranked in the top-10 at their respective weight classes.

    The Sears Centre is a multi-purpose arena which currently serves as the home of the Windy City Bulls, the D-League affiliate of the Chicago Bulls. Additionally, the Big Ten Women's Basketball Tournament has been hosted at the Sears Centre in two of the last four years. The arena is about 35 miles west of Welsh-Ryan Arena and right off of I-90.

    Ticketing, hotel, and media credential information will be announced as they become available.
