United Center

"Solid View from Beneath the Press Box"

Seat Review From Section 320, Row 8, Seat 5
Apr 2013

Comments

My girlfriend and I were given these seats as birthday presents and they were a great gift indeed. With the high demand and resulting high prices of Blackhawks tickets, I had not been to a game in 2 seasons, and it was amazing to be back in the United Center to watch the boys live. Section 320 has a great view of the majority of the ice and are on the side where the Hawks shoot twice, so we were in a great spot. The walk to the 8th row from the section entrance was a breeze (entrance is at row 3), and we were very comfortable only having to climb over 4 other fans to get to our seats.

The section is actually located just below Press Box, which was really fun and interesting as we could hear some of the chatter and announcements coming from above. Backing up to the press box in this section as gave it a more comfortable, cozy feel, probably due to the fact that there are fewer rows to make space for the press level seating. We could even see some fans in the last rows of section 320 standing to talk to people in the Press Box which was neat (I'm guessing the fans were season ticket holders and have developed a bit of a connection with the people that work in the press box). Beer vendors came through 5 times during the game, and always came through with great timing as we took them up on the offer on two of the five occasions.

The only downfalls with these seats are the views of the far near corner which can be obstructed by fans in lower rows (see my pics), and the lines to the restrooms were pretty substantial as well (took my girlfriend almost the entire 1st intermission to get through the line for the womens room). But overall these were great seats with amazing views on the 300 level at the UC!

Best for... watching the game, fans on a budget

Avoid if... you consider yourself "Big and Tall"

    • "Great hockey experience"

      (Section 304) - -

      Great view friendly crowd.

    • "Ten times better for hockey than basketball"

      (Section 323) - -

      These are bargain seats for hockey or basketball, but they are much better for hockey than for basketball. The Hawks shoot twice on this end (or thrice if you go to a triple OT Stanley Cup game), which is a definite bonus. Seeing the action on this end of the ice is very good, while seeing action on...

    • "Great View and Close to Exit"

      (Section 313) - -

      Right by the entrance --super close to the bar and bathrooms! Would definitely sit here again! Con: Lots of stairs to get up to the upper section, but once you get to 313, your seats are right there!
