Cornhole decals are continuing to gain popularity. They're affordable, offer a quick and easy installation, and come in many colors. Because a large part of our business is selling decals, we're in the process of creating a color-coded table for each state. Each table displays many of the state's popular sports teams along with their colors and our corresponding decal colors. Instead of simply showing tables, we also list some interesting facts about each state and describe the decal types we sell. In this state article, we'll cover the state of Illinois.

Illinois Professional Sports
At the time of this writing, Illinois has six professional sports teams. All teams are based in the city of Chicago and all teams have won at least one championship in their respective leagues. The Bulls have won 6 NBA Championships, all lead by hall of famers Michael Jordan, Scottie Pippen, and coach Phil Jackson. Many experts consider the 96 Bulls as the best team in NBA history. The Blackhawks have won five Stanley Cups, the Bears eight championships and one Super Bowl, the Fire one MLS Cup and four U.S. Open Cups, the White Sox 3 World Series titles, and the Cubs 2 World Series titles.
Many sports fans remember the famous Chicago Cubs fan incident on October 14, 2003. The Cubs were playing the Florida Marlins at Wrigley Field when a fan interfered with a foul ball in Game 6 of the NLCS. At the time the Cubs had a 3 - 0 lead. After the interference, the Cubs unravelled and gave up 8 runs in route to a game and eventually series loss.
With a rich history in sports and a strong cornhole community, Illinois cornhole players love to decorate their cornhole boards after their favorite sports teams. With a wide selection of decal types and colors, we've got Illinois players covered!
In regards to types, our website carries circle, stripe, and logo decals. We also carry full board wraps in woodgrain, with solid colors coming soon. Our circles are used to add a decorative border around the board's hole. Our stripes are good for bordering the board. Our full board wraps are good for applying a vinyl base before adding borders and logos (a base isn't required).
We carry several colors. Our decals come in sets of two, but can be mix and matched with regards to color. This allows you to easily decorate one board after one team and one after another. For example, you may want to make one Cubs board and one White Sox board.
With all the professional, league, and collegiate teams in Illinois, several team colors exist. Below is a table of Illinois' most popular sports teams and the colors they were. Our matching decal colors are also included so you can get an idea of what colors you'll need to order. Images of the actual types and colors can be found on each decal's product page.
