An NXT TakeOver special is officially set to take place in Chicago over Money in the Bank weekend.

The show is scheduled for the Allstate Arena on June 16th, which is one day before the venue hosts Money in the Bank. Though there have been changes to the WWE pay-per-view schedule, TakeOver returning to Chicago has been planned since at least December.

Chicago hosted its first NXT special last May, with Tommaso Ciampa turning against Johnny Gargano after their ladder match against The Authors of Pain, Pete Dunne taking on Tyler Bate in one of the best WWE matches of the year, and Bobby Roode and Asuka defending their respective titles.

There are now five TakeOver events on the calendar for this year, with this being the only one not happening during a "Big Four" pay-per-view weekend. The next one will be in New Orleans on April 7th, and NXT will finish building to that show at their television tapings at Full Sail University on Wednesday.

Tickets for TakeOver: Chicago will go on sale on April 14th. Before that, combo tickets for TakeOver and Money in the Bank will be available in a pre-sale starting this Wednesday at noon Central time.
