Chicago Bulls Confirm No Fans For the Start of 2020-21 Season

Chicago Bulls

What was expected has now been made official. The Chicago Bulls announced on Thursday that the organization will not house fans at the United Center at the start of the 2020-21 season.

Most assumed that the city of Chicago would not allow the arena to welcome fans anyway. After all, the Cubs and White Sox both went their full season without fans in the building, and the Chicago Bears are likely on the brink of doing the same. The Bulls message shared over social media, however, does provide some hope that the United Center can open to some fans at a later date.

Of course, the regular season will go through May and the playoffs will stretch things until mid-to-late July. The current trajectory of the pandemic isn’t necessarily the most encouraging, but we all know a lot can change over that time span. So, out of all Chicago sports teams to recently play, I guess you could say the Bulls have the best chance of seeing a limited capacity of fans sometimes over their season. Only time will tell.
