Bulls tickets initially sold for the 1966-1967 NBA season, as they were a new expansion to the league. They were founded in 1966 and played their first two seasons in the International Amphitheatre. The indoor arena was located at the west side of Halsted Street. The small 9,000 seat arena replaced the Dexter Park horse track which burned down on the site which at had stood for fifty years.
After the first couple of seasons the Chicago Bulls would move into Chicago Stadium. The stadium was an indoor arena which the Chicago Blackhawks NHL hockey club had been using since 1929. Bulls tickets would sell for home games at the arena from 1967 up until 1994. It was the largest indoor arena of its time, only Madison Square Garden in New York City could compare in size yet had half of the seating capacity. Chicago Stadium would eventually be demolished in 1995. A year after the new United Center was opened. Fans of both the Bulls and Blackhawks would watch the wrecking ball take down "The Madhouse On Madison" in an emotion event. Chicago Stadium was a historical part of professional sports in Chicago. The site is now the parking lot for the current home of both teams at the United Center.
In 1994 the two team owners for the Bulls and Blackhawks decided on a plan for a new venue. Jerry Reinsdorf and the late Bill Wirtz would build a modern and updated indoor sports arena for each team to call home. Located in the Near West Side section of Chicago the venue was officially opened for business on August 18, 1994. United Airlines would purchase the naming rights for the arena and give the name "The United Center." United Airlines pays for 1.8 million dollars per annum with the contract ending in 2014.
The United Center is currently owned by Rocky Wirtz and Reinsdorf and the largest indoor arena in overall size, not seating capacity. It holds 19,717 seats and is located just west of the popular "Chicago Loop" area of the city. The outside of the arena has resemblances to Chicago Stadium, and the indoor acoustical designs were implemented to hold the loud noise levels which made its predecessor so exciting among fans. Besides sports the arena is also a concert venue for the biggest tours of each year. Names such as Bob Dylan, Bruce Springsteen, Frank Sinatra and U2 have all performed there. Bulls tickets are sold through the box office of the United Center for all games.
