About United Center
United Center is located in the Near West Side neighborhood of Chicago, adjacent to the Loop and west of the Chicago River. Built starting in 1992, the United Center replaced Chicago Stadium upon opening in 1995, and its acoustics have been designed to replicate the famous "Roar" of the old stadium. Now, the stadium is home to the Chicago Bulls basketball team and the Chicago Blackhawks hockey team, where they can be found playing from early October to mid-April. When the Bulls and Blackhawks aren't in season, touring comedians, singers, and other artists will perform at the United Center when passing through Chicago.
Fun fact: United Center is the country’s largest arena in physical size but not capacity. Bulls and Blackhawks fans attending games regularly outnumber available seats!
Things to Do at United Center
