"The Bucks' inspiring level of performance accompanied by the continued development of Fiserv Forum and its neighboring Deer District has brought pride and excitement to Milwaukeeans," said El Rey owner Ernesto Villarreal. "El Rey is honored to be able to share another great season of Milwaukee Bucks basketball with the Hispanic Community in Wisconsin."
