The Near West Side neighborhood of Chicago, Illinois pride itself in housing the largest arena in the United States: The United Center. It’s worth noting, however, that it’s considered as the largest in physical size, not in seating capacity. But apart from its massive size, the United Center is known for redefining the sports and entertainment experience of all visitors when it became the first stadium with an acoustics design that amplifies the noise level of the crowd’s cheer each game.
The United Center hosts over 200 events per year and has drawn over 20 million visitors since its opening. Over the long haul, it routinely exceeds the seating capacity for its home teams: the Chicago Bulls of the NBA and the Chicago Blackhawks of the NHL. It was the Bulls’ home during their second run in three consecutive championships, hosting the 1996, 1997, and 1998 NBA Finals. In the NFL, it has hosted the Stanley Cup Finals three times: in 2010, 2013, and 2015.
