The BMO Harris Bradley Center was built in hopes of attracting an NHL hockey franchise. Of course, the Bucks and Marquette basketball teams had plans to play there all along, but the floor layout is perfect for professional hockey. When it came to landing a prized NHL franchise, things didn’t quite work out as planned. The city would make great use of the facility, by inviting the Milwaukee Admirals to make the Bradley Center their home ice. The Admirals are part of the American Hockey League, and have been going strong for over 30 years.
BMO Harris Bradley Center Seating
Depending on the type of sport, seating at the BMO Harris Bradley center can vary greatly. For basketball, there are seats on the court, just under both basketball hoops. As the ice for Admirals games is covered by the court, it means the seats on the wood are actually on top of a huge ice rink.
What are the best sections and seats for basketball at the Bradley Center? That all depends on your preferences and what you can afford to pay. Tickets for NBA basketball games are cheaper as you get further up and away from the court. That would make upper level tickets that reside behind the hoop the cheapest seat. Of course, floor seating for basketball games is the most expensive, and the rarest. There are just a handful of seats “on the wood.”
