Arena

The Chicago Bulls have called three arenas as their home over the course of their history. The team played at the International Amphitheatre in its 1966-67 debut season, the Chicago Stadium from 1967-1994, and since then the United Center. The United Center, also known as “The Madhouse on Madison,” is the largest arena in the U.S. and can hold up to 21,000 people for basketball games. The arena is also the home of the NHL’s Chicago Blackhawks and hosts another 200 events per year, ranging from concerts to circuses.

Outside the arena is a bronze statue of Michael Jordan, nicknamed the “Spirit,” in his signature “Air Jordan” pose. Inside the arena hangs the championship and retired numbers banners of the Bulls and Blackhawks. The Bulls retired numbers include #4 Jerry Sloan, #10 Bob Love, #23 Michael Jordan, #33 Scottie Pippen, Coach Phil Jackson, and GM Jerry Krause.
