"Aaaaaand now....the starting lineup for your Chicago Bulls!"
From the player introductions at the start of each game to the final buzzer, a Bulls game is high intensity excitement. Catch Bulls basketball as they face off against the NBA's biggest names and hottest teams at the United Center, just west of downtown. Pre-season begins in October and the 2012-2013 Regular Season schedule begins October 31 and continues through June.
Single game tickets start at only $44 and are available online through Ticketmaster and the Chicago Bulls website nba.com/bulls, as well as from the United Center box office or by calling 1-800-4NBA-TIX.
As any basketball fan enters the United Center, they pay tribute to the famous statue of Michael Jordan that soars out front. The impressive bronze statue depicts Jordan – arguably the greatest professional basketball player of all time – "flying" over his opponents in a depiction of one of his legendary slam dunks. You'll have no doubts why he earned the nickname "Air Jordan." The United Center, often referred to as the Madhouse on Madison, is truly the house that Jordan built.
GAME DAY ENTERTAINMENT
Before the game, indulge in the city's famous local grub like our deep-dish pizza and a Chicago-style hot dog. Or select from a variety of other options in the stadium like the brew pub or cantina for great spots to grab a drink and cheer on the team.
While walking around the 100 level concourse, you can capture the moment in front of one of the most impressive display cases in the world of professional sports. The Bulls have all six of their NBA championship trophies on display, snap a photo right in front. And right across is an official team store to stock up on every kind of memorabilia you can imagine. Fans can also have a photo taken with busts of Scottie Pippen and long-time great announcer (and former coach) Johnny "Red" Kerr.
But be sure to get to your seat before the tip off. When the stadium goes dark and the Bulls' iconic theme song pulses through the speakers, you'll get goosebumps as the crowd erupts as one. Bright laser lights beam red and the jumbotron flashes with animated videos of bulls stampeding across the city. With each name announced on the starting lineup, the fans rev up for the start of the game. It's a tradition – and there's nothing like it.
Throughout the game and between the timeouts, the fun doesn't stop. Keep an eye out for beloved mascot Benny the Bull as he hams it up on the sidelines and tosses t-shirts into the stands. From the dancing Luvabulls cheerleading squad to the rhythmic drumming of the Bucket Boys, the entertainment will leave you smiling — no matter what the score.
