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"

  • "$8 Student Tickets"

    (Section 306) - -

    Before the Blackhawks became good, these tickets could be purchased for $8 with a student ID. It was the best deal in sports -- by far.

  • "Aisle"

    (Section 331) - -

    Awesome seats on the aisle with the restroom right underneath you for quick access.

  • "Good for 300 level"

    (Section 304) - -

    These seats were pretty good for 300 level. Closer to one end of the ice than the other but we didn’t feel too removed when they were on the opposite end. At row 6 we were just steps away from the exit and the bathrooms were right outside making it a quick and easy to leave our seats.
