How Much Are Bulls Tickets? 2019/20 Bulls Schedule and Tickets
Even if the Chicago Bulls have never won a championship without the help of Michael Jordan, they are one of the pre-eminent teams in the NBA. They are always one of the most in-demand teams in the league, and the 2019-20 season figures to be no different. For fans who are planning on checking out the Bulls in person at the United Center this season, here is everything you need to know about how much it will cost to buy Bulls tickets and all of the marquee games on the schedule.
How much are Bulls tickets? Unfortunately, there is no simple way to answer that question. Like most sports franchises, the Bulls put a different face value on tickets depending on the opponent. For less desirable opponents, tickets at the United Center box office can be purchased for as low as $40 for seats in the upper level while lower-level seats will cost at least $120. However, ticket prices increase along with the quality of the opponent. For example, any ticket when the Warriors visit the Bulls will cost at least $60. For LeBron James and the Lakers, the minimum face value is $70 for an upper-level ticket while seats in the lower level behind the basket will cost at least $250.
When in doubt, getting Bulls tickets on the secondary market is usually the best option for fans who don’t want to commit to a long-term plan. The average cost of Bulls tickets on the secondary market has gone down by over 50% in recent years, meaning there are plenty of great deals out there for Bulls fans.
Buying tickets on the secondary market isn’t an exact science, but most of the time, the best deals are available to those who wait. If you wait until 48 hours before a game, tickets available on the secondary market start to decrease in price. The best deals often come in the last few hours before tip-off, although that can be a risky strategy if you have your heart set on going to a particular game. Also, the cheapest tickets to a Bulls game can usually be found on a weeknight against a team that isn’t considered a marquee opponent.
While every Bulls game is a special occasion that has a chance to be memorable, there are games that every fan should have circled on their calendar. For these games, fans are advised to explore every avenue possible to get the best tickets possible.
A big game that Bulls fans should be eagerly awaiting is on February 6, when the New Orleans Pelicans visit the Windy City. A year ago, this game wouldn’t have been a big deal, but that was before the Pelicans drafted Zion Williamson, a possible generational talent. This is the only time the Pelicans play at the United Center this season and it’ll be the first chance Bulls fans have to check out Williamson in person.
Finally, there is the December 6 game against the Warriors. Obviously, Golden State isn’t as appealing as they were a year ago now that Kevin Durant has left the team and Klay Thompson is hurt. But the Warriors are still the class of the Western Conference, having played in the NBA Finals in five straight seasons. This might also be Chicago’s best chance to give Golden State a little retribution after the Bulls have lost one lopsided game after another to the Warriors over the past five seasons.
