Stadiums in Chicago
United Center
This is a place of worship for basketball fans and fanatical followers of Jordan, Pippen and the Bulls. In the middle of nowhere. It is the House of the Black Hawks (hockey) and the Bulls (basketball) and it has the capacity for more than 21,000 spectators and also houses concerts and other events. The so-called "House of Jordan", has a statue of this basketball star at its entrance and here you can read all the highlights of Jordan's career. The sculpture shows his famous jump. In addition, the stadium has a shop and pub, albeit with a rather odd hours (I did not managed to find it open). And to enter the stadium you have to book by phone. During the season, the games are not very expensive, about $ 90 for a regular ticket. The stadium was built in 1994 and is located west of the city, about 10-15 minutes by taxi from North Michigan Avenue which costs more or less 8-9 dollars. The web page tells you their schedules, prices and so on. Its name comes from the sponsor, the company United Airlines. This area of ​​the city is not bad, it is now a residential area with its low houses although it is not the best area of ​​the city to go at night, though. But during the day one can stroll pretty quietly.

Soldier Field
Soccer Field stadium is located on the south end of Grant Park. overlooking Lake Michigan. It houses the home games of the NFL's Chicago Bears, a professional football team. It's a great stadium built in the 20s that follows neoclassical architectural guidelines. I have a lot of affection for it, as the first time I traveled to the city I was given a room that had a spectacular view of its facilities. It underwent a radical overhaul ten years ago that altered its structure so much it lost its historical place category, something Americans take very seriously. Only two colonnaded sides were kept. The facilities might be technologically advanced, but the building has lost all of its kitschy charm. A shame. What was once a Greco-Roman circle is now no more than post-modern goop.

Ryan Field
I couldn't believe how big this stadium was for a college team! It would be completely unthinkable in Spain. In my case, I went there to attend my brother's graduation, but it's main use is for the American football team, the Northwestern Wildcats (Northwestern University).
