Where they play
The Blackhawks play their home games at the United Center in downtown Chicago. Opened in August of 1994, The United Center also plays host to the NBA’s Chicago Bulls, as well as serves as a major concert venue and host of other premier events that come through the Chicago area. The arena features statues of Blackhawks greats Bobby Hull and Stan Mikita outside, as well as a statue of Bulls legend Michael Jordan.
Until 1995, the Blackhawks played their home games at Chicago Stadium. Opened in 1929, Chicago Stadium was known as the “Madhouse of Madison” due to its incredibly loud and intense crowd, regularly giving the Hawks a distinct home-ice advantage; the stadium hosted three Stanley Cup Championships for the Hawks: in 1934, 1938, and 1961. The former site of Chicago Stadium is now a parking lot across from the United Center.
