The Milwaukee Bucks are the center of major excitement as they approach their 50th anniversary season, both among local basketball fans and nationally. With a young and hungry team led by one of the NBA’s biggest up-and-coming stars, the Bucks are poised to be contenders in the Eastern Conference for years to come.
The state-of-the-art Wisconsin Entertainment and Sports Center is scheduled to open in the summer of 2018 in advance of the 2018-19 season, promising fans a stunning new venue for NBA action, college basketball, concerts, and more. The first acts announced for the arena include Maroon 5 and Jim Gaffigan. The arena serves as the hub of a brand new entertainment district and public plaza, taking Milwaukee’s already thriving sports nightlife to a whole new level.
You’ll feel the electric energy as the Bucks take the home court on game days. Mascot Bango was voted the first “Most Awesome Mascot” by Cartoon Network thanks to his high-flying antics and acrobatic dunks. The Bucks Beats Drumline, Bucks Dancers, and the Hoop Troop all help bring the fun to the court, concourse, and even into the stands.
