MILWAUKEE - Milwaukee Brewers officials announced on Friday, May 14 that beginning on June 4, tickets for the remainder of the season – from June 25 on – will go on sale to fans.
The information comes just a day after the team announced it would be opening American Family Field to 100% capacity starting June 25 – when the Colorado Rockies come to town.
"Obviously, the big news is on June 4, we’re going to go on sale for all the games that are June 25 or later and those are all at 100% capacity," said Rick Schlesinger, Brewers president of business operations.
The ticket sales, usually available over a three-month period in February, are now crammed into three weeks.
"A lot of credit goes to our box office staff and our ticket people to do all the work necessary to manifest all the seating bowls and all the games and doing these different gradations of capacity," Schlesinger said.
As a result, ticket sales are a bit complicated. Single-game tickets will be available in three phases to reflect capacity requirements.
"Our ticketing system was not designed for a pandemic, it was not designed for different capacities," said Schlesinger.
Tickets and promotions
Single-game tickets will be available in three phases:
- For games scheduled Friday, May 14 through Thursday, May 27 – tickets are now on sale.
- For games scheduled Monday, May 31 through Wednesday, June 16 – tickets will go on sale Saturday, May 22 at 10 a.m.
- For games scheduled Friday, June 25 through Sunday, Sept. 26 – tickets will go on sale Friday, June 4 at 10 a.m.
The team also announced starting on June 25, beer vendors will be allowed in the stands to serve fans. 50/50 raffle sellers will also be able to walk in the stands – something that came as a shock to long-time vendor Ryan Strnad.
"Is it Christmas in June or July? I mean really it was like a visit from Santa when Mr. Schlesinger said that," said Strnad.
The Brewers have also released the full season promotional schedule that includes several notable celebrations.
The ever-popular bobblehead games, available to the first 35,000 fans, will include the following: the iconic Hank Aaron (June 6), Christian Yelich (June 13 & Aug. 8), Paul Molitor (June 27), Robin Yount (July 11), Lorenzo Cain (July 25), Ben Sheets (Aug. 22), Ryan Braun (Sept. 5) and a special audible Bob Uecker bobblehead (Sept. 26), complete with some of his most-revered highlight calls.
Theme nights such as Peanuts, Top Gun, Hawaiian Shirt and Star Wars, and Community Nights including Pride Night, Cerveceros Night, and the popular Negro Leagues Tribute Game (the 25th year in a row honoring greats from the Negro Leagues) are scheduled throughout the summer.
The Club will also honor and celebrate its 50-plus years as a franchise in Milwaukee with designated "Decade Weekends" throughout the season – visit brewers.com/promotions.
Fans can expect some of their favorite ongoing promotions including Miller High Life Mondays, 5-County Fridays – when residents of Milwaukee, Ozaukee, Racine, Washington and Waukesha counties save 50% on tickets – and Kids & Seniors Discount Days – when kids 14 and under and seniors 60 years of age or older have access to half-price tickets.
