Replacing a 65-year-old city icon, Chicago Stadium, the United Center was the first NHL arena to average 20,000-plus fans, averaging 20,833 during the inaugural 1994-95 season. The United Center has an four-sided HD video replay scoreboard, 360-degree LED boards on two levels, 191 executive suites, more than 3,000 club seats, four 300-level viewbars, Fandemonium (a Blackhawks and Bulls souvenir store) and 11 other merchandise stands. The Blackhawks enter the 2011-12 season having hosted 146 consecutive capacity crowds (regular and postseason) at the United Center, and have led the NHL in per-game attendance for three straight seasons. The 960,000 square foot multi-use facility also is home to the NBA's Bulls, and has hosted many major rock concerts, NCAA basketball and the 1996 Democratic National Convention.
