NBA Rumors: Chicago Bulls To Host 2020 NBA All-Star Game

The economic impact previous year of the All-Star Game in New Orleans was upwards of $45 million, a number likely to be greater in Chicago given its deep basketball history.

The Chicago Bulls will host the NBA All-Star Game in 2020, the league officially announced at a press conference Friday. The league will officially announce the news on Friday, with National Basketball Association commissioner Adam Silver and Chicago mayor Rahm Emanuel expected to attend.

It will be the first All-Star Game played in Chicago since 1988 and the first time it's ever been held at the United Center. "I'm looking forward to better seats". Cleveland had previously been vying to host the league's next available All-Star Game, targeting the 2020 and 2021 exhibitions. Could Cleveland be in line to host the 2021 event?

Reinsdorf credited the expanded campus of shops and activities around the United Center as a selling point for the game, and thanked the city for aiding in the development on the Near West Side. The Windy City will play host to the annual weekend of events in 2020, with an official announcement expected to take place Friday.

"This was a stadium". But Cleveland will have to wait until at least 2021 for its next NBA All-Star Game.
