Strong start to Bucks' season-ticket campaign for first year in new arena

Season tickets for the Milwaukee Bucks' inaugural season in their upcoming new Downtown arena went on sale to the general public on Friday, and fans responded with eager enthusiasm.

Through the first day of public sale, the team announced Saturday morning, the Bucks had sold more than 300 new full-season ticket memberships for 2018-19 in the Wisconsin Entertainment and Sports Center.

"There's clearly a sense of high urgency from Bucks fans to secure their seats in our new world-class arena," Bucks President Peter Feigin said in a statement. "Demand is at a fever pitch, and we anticipate exceeding our already lofty expectations."

The strong start to the season-ticket campaign for the new arena follows the Bucks' impressive 2017-18 sales period, when the team sold 2,600 full memberships entering this season.

"There's an incredible amount of buzz about Milwaukee's new Downtown arena and the Bucks," Feigin said. "We're excited to create an unprecedented experience and look forward to opening our doors to this world-class venue. It's a great time to be a Bucks fan."

Scheduled to open this fall, the NBA's newest arena will seat 17,500 for basketball games – 18,00 for concerts – and offer incomparable sightlines, service and amenities, with a uniquely intimate configuration well-suited for sports and other events. It will also feature 34 luxury suites and three clubs.

The Wisconsin Entertainment and Sports Center will host a wide variety of events, including the Bucks, Marquette men's basketball, major concerts and family shows, as well as other sports and entertainment. According to the team, the state-of-the-art WESC – which has yet to announce a naming rights partner – is 75 percent complete.

Fans wishing to buy full-season ticket memberships for the Bucks' first year in their new arena can do so by visiting or by calling the Bucks ticket office at (414) 227-0599. For more information on the WESC, click here.
