United Center - Chicago, IL

One of the largest arenas in the country, United Center is the home of the NBA’s Chicago Bulls and the NHL’s Chicago Blackhawks. The arena opened in 1994 with the World Wrestling Federation’s SummerSlam as its first major event. Since then, it’s welcomed more than 40 million visitors and more than 200 events annually, including the Bulls and Blackhawks home games, tournaments, family events and concerts. Musical legends that have graced its stage include Sir Paul McCartney, Barbra Streisand, Tina Turner, the Rolling Stones and Bruce Springsteen.

Often called “The House That Jordan Built”—a reference to NBA legend Michael Jordan, who captained the Bulls to six NBA championships—United Center boasts theater-style cushioned seats, excellent sight lines and state-of-the-art facilities. Fans can purchase official merchandise at the Blackhawks and Bulls pro shops, open on game days. Dining options include classic arena fare as well as higher end options including the Ketel One Club and Chicago Pours.

Located on the Near West Side of Chicago, United Center has 6,000 parking spaces in its official lots, and there are many more located within walking distance. For fans who are commuting, the No. 19 United Center Express Bus runs on game days. There are numerous hotels within a five-mile radius offering a wide range of accommodations. Because there are few restaurants within walking distance, some places offer shuttle services to the stadium. For sporting events, non-flash, still cameras may be used to take pictures, but professional photography equipment and selfie sticks are prohibited. For concerts and other events, professional cameras, video recorders, audio recorders and selfie sticks are prohibited.
