Blackhawks Single-Game Preseason Tix On Sale

Thumbnail image for GB blackhawks icon.png Get 'em while they're hot, and available! The Blackhawks, coming off their 2013 championship season, are opening up single-game preseason tickets to one and all, starting at 10:00am until there are no more.

According to the team site, those interested in purchasing tickets can go to, or by calling (800) 745-3000. It also should be noted that tickets are subject to availability and not guaranteed to be available for all games, price levels and/or seating areas.

Now, with all the formalities out of the way, the following three games will be played at the United Center during preseason hockey, which starts in almost a month from now.

(All game times are 7:00pm.)

  • Tuesday, September 17, versus the Detroit Red Wings
  • Thursday, September 19, versus the Pittsburgh Penguins
  • Saturday, September 28, versus the Washington Capitals

The team site also lists tips for those looking to purchase tickets, due to high demand from the team's popularity. Here are some helpful pointers to make sure you get the golden ticket to the preseason:

  • Better seat locations and price options may be available by searching for a lower number of tickets (i.e. 4 tickets instead of 8) or for an odd number of seats (i.e. 1 ticket or 3 tickets).
  • Have all payment, billing and account information available. For those purchasing via the Internet, you will have a specified time limit to complete your transaction. A timer will display during the check-out process.
  • If you have ordered tickets through Ticketmaster for concerts, shows or sporting events (including Chicago Blackhawks games), you may already have an existing Ticketmaster account. If you are not sure if you have an existing Ticketmaster account or have forgotten your password, click here, insert your email address and Ticketmaster will instruct you to reset your password or create a new account.

The highest-priced single-game tickets for the preseason are about $400 for the PrivateBank seats in the 100-Level -- in other words, on the glass. From there, ticket prices drop drastically to about $175 for 100-Level Prime seats all the way down to $40 per for some 300-Level seating.

With training camp opening Thursday, September 12, in South Bend at Notre Dame's Compton Family Ice Arena, through Sunday, September 15, the team is slowly getting back at it after a quick break. The team then will return to the United Center on Monday, September 16, for the annual Training Camp Festival.

Time flies with the Cup wandering around the city, Park Ridge and Canada. It won't be long now before the team raises its fifth flag in the UC (Tuesday, October 1, against the Capitals), and sets up to defend its title.
