The United Center is the largest NBA and NHL arena which makes it easier for the Bulls and Blackhawks to lead the league in attendance every season. This creates unobstructed sight lines throughout the stadium but you will be quite far away in the 300 level. 


Often referred to as the "Madhouse on Madison" it can't reach the levels of noise of the Chicago Stadium that held the nickname before. 


It is a clean and nice place to see a game or concert but it is has become outdated in a mere 22 years. It is a completely symmetrical building and lacks character. The scoreboard needs updating as even cities like Indianapolis and Oklahoma City have better screens.
