The Windy City Bulls, presented by BMO, the NBA G League affiliate of the Chicago Bulls, will host a FREE community FanFest on Saturday, Oct. 15 at NOW Arena in Hoffman Estates from 12 p.m. – 4 p.m.
The event will be fans’ first opportunity to purchase single game tickets, which will go on sale at noon, and take part in several interactive experiences planned for the afternoon event. Attendees who purchase four or more single game tickets will receive an exclusive print-on-demand Windy City Bulls t-shirt from Blink Tees, the presenting partner of the event.
The six Chicago Bulls championship trophies and memorabilia from the 90s Dynasty teams will be displayed in the Windy City locker room for photo opportunities. FanFest will include on-court Bulls Entertainment performances from the Bucket Boys and the Elevators.
Other photo opportunities at FanFest will include chances to sit at Windy City’s official press room table, and interactions with Windy City’s mascot, Gus T. Bull, and his cousin, Benny the Bull. Fans can also meet Windy City’s coaching staff during the event.
It’s not a true FanFest without some hoops. There will be games of Knockout, a Three-Point Shootout and a Kids Dunk Contest taking place throughout the day, providing chances to win dozens of prizes and tickets. Windy City’s Fun Zone will be set up with multiple new games for children in attendance, including pop-a-shot and a jumbo tic-tac-toe game.
