Frequently Asked Questions

Will fans be allowed to attend games at the United Center this season?
On April 29, the City of Chicago announced it would permit the United Center to welcome fans back to the arena for Chicago Blackhawks and Bulls games at approximately 25% capacity beginning with the May 9 Blackhawks game against the Dallas Stars. Our current full season ticketholders will receive priority access to the purchase opportunity for the available single-game ticket allotment to the remaining games in the 2020-21 season. More detailed FAQs on ticketing, the modified gameday experience and new health & safety protocols can be found HERE.

What will the gameday experience look like when fans are allowed to return?
The health and safety of our fans, players and staff remains our top priority. As part of the arena's reopening to fans, the United Center, Blackhawks and Bulls are implementing increased health & safety protocols at every step of fan's gameday experience in accordance with all NBA, NHL, Centers for Disease Control, and state and local guidelines. More detailed FAQs on the modified gameday experience and increased protocols, including a pre-arrival health screening, mandatory mask policy and no-bag policy, can be found HERE.

If I purchase season tickets now for next season, will I be added to the group receiving priority access to purchase single-game tickets for remaining games in the 2020-21 season?
Yes. New full season ticketholders who secure their 2021-22 seats prior to the exclusive presale beginning on May 3 will receive priority access to the purchase opportunity for single-game tickets to remaining Blackhawks games this season. Visit for more information on available plans. 

What happens to my money if next season (2021-22) is also played without fans in attendance or at a reduced capacity?
We want you to know that you can purchase season tickets with complete confidence that if next season is played without fans or at a reduced capacity, you'll have the option of rolling your purchase to the 22-23 season or receiving a refund.

What happens to my tickets if the 2021-22 season is played at a reduced capacity?
If games are played at a reduced capacity, all new and renewing full and partial season ticketholders will receive top priority to access tickets for the 2021-22 season. What that adjusted access looks like will be determined by capacity limits in accordance with all applicable NHL, local, state, and federal guidelines.

When will the 2021-22 season start and how many games will be played?
With the 2020-21 NHL regular season scheduled to conclude in May and the Stanley Cup to be awarded in mid-July, the NHL has set a goal of returning to a normal hockey calendar for the 2021-22 season (regular season beginning in October).
