Bucks Win First Two Playoff Games at Fiserv | Brewers Get Hot

Ticket King Bucks Tickets
The Milwaukee Bucks are two games up on the Miami heat in the 2021 NBA playoffs. In this "limited seating" playoff run, the team has made it very exciting for those fans that have tickets to the games at Fiserv Forum

The team made it all but over in the first quarter of game two. The Bucks tied records for most points scored and three point shots in the first, and never let the Heat back into the game. This effort made up for their less than stellar effort in game one. The team heads to Miami for game three.  

 Brewers String Together Three Wins

The Milwaukee Brewers are coming back around to playing solid baseball. With their top-notch pitching staff, all the team needed were hot bats on offense. Prior to this three game win streak, those bats were cold. The team went 6-18 for the month of may, before winning the series against the Reds. Last night, the Padres were mowed down by great pitching, with the Brew Crew cutting the Padres win streak to just nine. The team his home for two more games, then they hit the road to take on the Nationals.

Will We See Full Stadiums and Veneues In 2021? | Ticket King Wisconsin

We All Miss Live Events

It's been too long since most of us have attended a concert or sporting event in person. We're not counting those "limited capacity" NFL games that came at the end of the 2020 season, even though they looked promising. We're talking about those sold out, 75,000 people in the stands, elbow to elbow, "high fiving" strangers, cheering yourself hoarse, games. We miss them. We miss being part of a crowd that erupts after a last second touchdown. We miss that special encore song that your favorite musician surprises you with at the end of a show. We miss it all. Are we back yet? Just about.

One thing holds true. When we are allowed to get back to normal, it's going to be great. It's going to be loud. It's going to be fun! We all want to be there to enjoy the spectacle of it all when things come back. We're social people. It's hardwired into our being, to get together and enjoy it all. 

Ticket King was one of those companies that went from making dreams come true with great tickets to live events, to a company that spent a large part of 2020 refunding loyal customers and hoping we all make it to 2021 safely. Through it all, one thing holds true. When it's safe, we want get together in person again to enjoy the thrill of music, sports, and theater. 

NFL Plans on Full Stadiums in 2021

It sure looks like the NFL will have full stadiums across the land this fall. The numbers are looking better and better each week, and those test runs that the NFL took in 2020 showed that people can attend an event without risking the health of those around them. Lambeau Field on a crisp fall afternoon is the place to be in 2021. 

 MLB Continues to Limit Capacity this Spring

Depending on the city or state, MLB teams are looking at limited capacity attendance for a bit longer. The Brewers hope to fill American Family Field seats with all those Brew Crew fans, but the approach is (so far) to keep safe.    

As the capacity restrictions are lifted, we'll see more tickets become available for sporting events. Live music venues are already booking shows for fall of 2021. These are all good signs, and Ticket King is there for you when you need all the best tickets to live events in the country.

Packers Tickets - Road Games in 2020 - Ticket King Wisconsin

As professional sports leagues have tried their best to return to some form of play, it is only natural for the fans to wonder if they too will be able to join in on the live action. Major League Baseball is deep into the 2020 playoffs, with no fans in the stands. The NHL wrapped up their short season in the same fashion. The most successful league in handling the pandemic would be the NBA. Their "bubble" was 100% effective, and fans got to see some great basketball as a reward. For Wisconsinites, we look to the Green Bay Packers. Where does the NFL stand when it comes to fans in the stands?

Each NFL team has the option to allow for fans to attend games, mostly in a limited number. NFL teams around the league are making decisions based on a number of factors. Case counts in the local region, whether the stadium is open air, or in a dome, even a bit of politics may come into play. When it comes to games at Lambeau Field, the first two home games of the 2020 season were going to be without fans right out of the box. From there, the Packers would make decisions based on the spread of the outbreak, and how well the state is handling things. Sadly, that has meant that Packers have little luck in getting "fans in the stands." Wisconsin remains a hot spot, especially the Green Bay and Fox Valley Region. It's quite unlikely that there will be any fans at Lambeau Field until the numbers go down.

Brewers Make Notable Moves for 2020 | Ticket King Inc.

Brewers Tickets
The Brewers had a rather busy off season, full of moves both big and small.  After fielding a very competitive team for the past two seasons, it's time to see if the Brewers can repeat this feat a third year in a row. Let’s dive into the notable moves for 2020.

Zach Davies Trade- In late November, the Milwaukee Brewers traded starting pitcher Zach Davies and outfielder Trent Grisham to the San Diego Padres for left-handed pitcher Eric Lauer and infielder Luis Urias. Lauer is expected to fix a hole in the Brewers rotation, and Urias is expected to play shortstop, after he recovers from wrist surgery.  

Orlando Arcia/SS- The former prized prospect is running out of chances to make his mark. Milwaukee gave him a one-year contract and 2020 will be his final chance.  His defensive production was what kept him in the starting rotation, but that has since slipped.  

Keon Broxton/OF- In early December, the Brewers elected to sign Keon Broxton to a minor league deal. This includes an invitation to spring training. Will Broxton be the fourth outfielder at Miller Park this season?

Josh Lindblom/SP- On December 9th, David Stearns made a very interesting move, adding starting pitcher Josh Lindblom, a man who spent the last three seasons in the Korean League, on a three-year contract.

Avisail Garcia/OF- The Brewers added Garcia on a two-year contract. Based on who else is going to be in camp in Arizona with the club competing for an outfield spot, something tells me that David Stearns may have finally found a taker for Ryan Braun, and the details are still being worked out.

Eric Sogard/INF- In late December, Stearns brought back a former Brewer, Sogard to provide infield depth. Sogard did not produce the last time he was in a Brewers uniform, but while playing for the Blue Jays and Rays, his numbers improved. He hit 13 home runs in 2019, but what helped land him this Brewers contract was his play on defense and his ability to get the ball up in the air. He’s reduced his ground out rate considerably.

Justin Smoak/1B- On that same day, they added Smoak, who is expected to be the starting first baseman this season. Smoak has to prove himself. 2019 was not the best season for Smoak, batting just .208 for Toronto. Braun could slide into that position, should Justin flame out.

Craig Counsell- To be sure, the Brewers have hitched their wagon to Counsell, who got a big contract extension through the 2023 season. Let’s see if the gamble pays off in the long haul.

Jedd Gyroko/INF- The Brewers added Gyroko on a one-year contract in January and he is expected to be the other reserve infielder besides Sogard. Gyroko had an injury plagued 2019 season, so the contract with the Brewers includes incentives based on plate appearances. Specifically, Gyroko will fit at third against left handed pitchers. He can also produce against those same left handed opposing pitchers.

Shelby Miller/RHP- Milwaukee is going to try to rebuild this former prized prospect of the St. Louis Cardinals. This first round draft pick, way back when, wound up as an All Star in 2015. That came crashing down when he was traded to the Diamondbacks. His fastball was hitting just over 94 mph last year, and the Brew Crew picked him up with a minor league contract.
