BMO Harris Bradley Center
An indoor sports arena located in downtown Milwaukee, Wisconsin, the BMO Harris Bradley Center serves as the home of the National basketball League’s Milwaukee Bucks.
In addition to being the home court of the NBA’s Bucks, it’s also the home of Marquette University’s Men’s Basketball team, the Milwaukee Wave of the MISL, and the Milwaukee Mustangs of the AFL in 1994 until 2001.
The stadium received a much-needed new scoreboard in the Sumer of 2010 as the old Sony Jumbotron was well outdated and behind the current league standards.
It was consider a state of the art arena when its construction completed in 1988, but is currently one of the oldest home courts in the National Basketball Association.
• Capacity: 18,717
• Opened: October 1, 1988
• Location: 1001 North Fourth Street
Milwaukee, Wisconsin 53203
• The stadium opened on October 1, 1988 with an NHL Exhibition game between the Edmonton Oilers and the Chicago Blackhawks.
• The naming rights to the Bradley Center were bought by BMO Harris Bank on May 21, 2012 who changed the name to their own namesake.
• On September 18, 2013, the NBA’s then-deputy commissioner took a tour of the stadium and decided it was not up to par with the current standards of the NBA. He issued the stadium’s management a mandate to change locations or build a new facility.
• The venue served as the location for the NCAA’s Frozen Four Championship Tournament in 1993, 1997, and 2006, as well as the Great Midwest Conference Basketball Tournament in 1995.
