SHARE Bulls will debut a new-look hardwood for the 2015-16 season

New coach in Fred Hoiberg, and now a new-look court.

The Bulls announced on Wednesday that they have updated the court design at the United Center for the 2015-16 season, and will debut it on Oct. 6, when the team faces the Milwaukee Bucks in the first preseason game of the year.

The major changes involve the Bulls logo at center court increasing by 75 percent, with an image of a basketball that was previously behind the logo now gone. The other major change is the lines on the outside of the court have been changed from red and white to all black, so that the “CHICAGO BULLS’’ text on the endlines pops out more.

Also, the four stars of the City of Chicago flag have been added to the south apron of the court.

The Bulls begin training camp with a media day on Sept. 28, and will have their first scheduled practice the following day.
