Sporting games to see

Hi

We are Aussies arriving on 1st October to 8th October 2012 and are interested in seeing any major league basketball, baseball or gridiron games if possible . Any college games would also be good. I think we are missing the basketball season but any info on teams or sites to go would be appreciated.

Thanks for any ideas or assistance

Basketball begins in early October - http://www.nba.com/bulls/schedule/

Hockey as well - blackhawks.nhl.com/club/schedule.htm…

Football begins in September - http://www.chicagobears.com/index.html

You can catch the last home game series of the Cubs - chicago.cubs.mlb.com/schedule/index.jsp…

University of Notre Dame and Miami University of Florida will play in Soldier Field in Chicago October 6. However, tickets will be hard to come by. Most likely, you'll have to purchase them on the secondary market at stubhub.com.

you will be too early, the bulls (basketball) start around october 31 with a couple of pre season games after the 15th of october

baseball is your best bet, those last cubs games will be very easy to get tickets, most likely free of $1 on stubhub.com, unless my some miracle they are going to the playoffs
