About this listing
On April 11th you can stay at the home of the legendary Chicago Bulls at the United Center. So how do you make this Night At the Home of the Chicago Bulls happen? Simply enter to win by 11:59 p.m. CT on 4/3/15.
We’ve teamed up with Airbnb to transform our home into yours, just for one night. On April 11th, 2015, you can stay at the home of the Chicago Bulls at the United Center. We’ve transformed a luxury executive suite into a luxurious Bulls themed bedroom, complete with glorious floor-to-ceiling homecourt views. Following a full afternoon of behind-the-scenes tours and VIP seat for the game against Philly, you’ll have the chance to play b-ball with your host, Hall of Famer and six-time champion, Scottie Pippen.
Do you consider yourself the biggest Bulls fan in the world? Do you sleep in your beloved #33 jersey every night and dream in black and red? On April 11th, we’re offering a lucky winner from the Chicago Area and one guest the chance to be the first ever Bulls fans to stay in a luxury executive suite--a space that has been transformed for one night only into a Bulls’ themed bedroom. This room with a view is all yours. And the best part of your stay? Your host is Scottie Pippen. After the game is over, Pippen will take you on a personal tour of his old home court, and give you a chance to practice your jump shot against one of the greatest defenders of all time.
What’s it like to stay in our house? Arrive in style to the United Center and head up to the Bulls boardroom to get your own custom Bulls jersey before heading to the floor for a tour. You’ll be hanging out courtside to watch the team warm-ups before you enjoy a first-class pre-game dinner.
After the game, and after thousands of your fellow Bulls fans head home, the court becomes all yours. Enjoy your practice hour with Pip, then it’s movie time. We call our screen the Jumbotron, and it comes with popcorn delivery.
Stay up late talking about the game, or call it an early night after all the excitement. After all, it is your home for the night.

About the Host, Scottie Pippen
Hi, I’m Scottie Pippen. Some call me Pip. Others call me the greatest small forward that the game has ever seen. I played in the league for 17 years and am a six-time champion. For most of my career, I played for one of the greatest dream teams of all time--the Chicago Bulls. I hope you feel right at home overlooking the court I used to defend. Looking forward to showing you around, making sure you feel at home in my world, and shooting some hoops together.
