About United Center

United Center is located in Chicago’s Near West Side neighborhood, adjacent to the Loop and to the west of the Chicago River. United Center replaced Chicago Stadium upon the former’s opening in 1995. The Chicago Bulls basketball team and the Chicago Blackhawks hockey team call United Center home. When major names in entertainment make their way to Chicago on tour, chances are they’ll be performing at United Center.

Fun fact: United Center is the country’s largest arena in physical size, but not in capacity. Bulls and Blackhawks fans attending games regularly outnumber available seats.

Things to Do at United Center

United Center is especially busy throughout the NBA and NHL seasons, which pretty much overlap from early October through mid-April each year. Tens of thousands of Bulls and Blackhawk fans have been cheering on their home teams at United Center for over two decades. In addition to hosting sporting events, United Center has booked performances by first-rate musical acts including Fleetwood Mac, Muse, and John Mayer in 2019.
