Ultimate Chicago Sports Package

Root, root, root for the home teams... cause you have tickets to all the hottest sports teams in town! Here is the ultimate Chicago sports package for the sports enthusiast that doesn’t discriminate between seasons. Whether it’s sitting courtside, hosting your fellow fans in a box, or riding a Zamboni, you will receive VIP treatment cheering on your favorite teams across the city.

Welcome basketball superstar, Dwayne Wade, to his old stomping grounds as he starts his first season with the Chicago Bulls from your courtside seats. Before you arrive to the game, experience a tour of the Bulls new training facility, the Advocate Center. It will be an unforgettable experience walking the same halls and stepping on to the court where the team trains to be champions! Don’t forget to capture the moment with a photo on center court and personalize your very own message on the scoreboard during game time. If you still haven’t had your fill of the action, return for another game with an entourage to fill a box.

The ‘lovable losers’ are going to need a new nickname. After a few seasons racking up more wins than losses, tickets to Wrigley are the hottest ones in town. Cheer on Kris Bryant and his teammates as they bring another W home in your very own box for one of the 2017 games.

Get in the fan zone on the way to the United Center to see the other home team, the Chicago Blackhawks. You and three guests will enjoy lower level seats close enough to catch a puck! Hopefully there will be no hard feelings as the decision is made over who gets the once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to drive the Zamboni and the autographed Patrick Kane jersey. Luckily, amends can be made during the post-game tour of the locker room. Imagine exchanging a high-five with Hossa as you make your way through the champ’s corridor.

Finally head over to Soldier Field to watch Jay Cutler lead the Chicago Bears to victory in two highly anticipated match-ups during the 2016-2017 Regular Season. Bear Down, Chicago Bears!
