The Blackhawks and Bulls will be allowed to have fans attend games at the United Center beginning May 7. Capacity is set at 25%, or about 4,000.
That means the Hawks will have fans in attendance for their final two contests of the season, May 9 and 10 against Dallas. The Bulls will have fans at four games: May 7 against Boston, May 11 against Brooklyn, May 13 against Toronto and May 16 against Milwaukee.
Both teams will take a phased-in approach to hosting fans. Beginning Saturday, the teams will host a few hundred player family members and team-invited guests only.
Tickets can only be purchased in pods of two or four adjacent seats. Throughout the arena, no two groups of seats will be closer than six feet apart and there will be no need to cross over other parties in the same row of seats.
The Hawks are the last team based in the United States to allow fans this season.
