Miller Park Seating | A General Guide To The Brewers' Home Turf

Miller Park Seating Chart
The Milwaukee Brewers may not be playing in October, though thousands of fans will continue to make their way into Miller Park seating areas until the end of the regular season. Rated as one of the best venues in the sport, the diamond has consistent good weather with a unique retractable roof and ample seating for over 40,000 fans. From general admission nose-bleeds to group business suites, every patron at Miller Park can find their spot.

Sections 404 to 442 represent the most economical terrace seating. Boxes and individual reserved seats are available to fans in these sections, as is Bernie's Terrace, which provides the best view of the mascot's famous homerun slide. All even-numbered 400-level sections are handicap accessible.

Fans looking to get a little closer to the action can take advantage of the well-priced club-boxes. Located on the 300-level, outfield and infield club-boxes are listed at the same face-value, though infield boxes do offer wait staff. The all-inclusive NYCE Stadium Club and the Gehl Club serve meals and drinks to the club-box sections, and also provide lounge areas for appropriate ticket holders. Miller Park's party suites are also located on the 300-level. The only 300-level handicapped seating is in the 309, 324, and 335 sections.

Five other all-inclusive areas are situated throughout the complex. All but the Toyota Territory provide fans with a private buffet and two free drinks during the game, as well as exclusive entrances and other amenities. The Dew Deck, the ATI Club, the Toyota Territory, and the Miller Lite Party Deck are located beyond right-field among sections 101-104 and 201-205. Space for more than 400 people is available between the four areas.

The Harley-Davidson Deck seats 42 fans on an open-style patio in left-field. The area includes all the amenities present at its fellow all-inclusive sites, as well as parking-passes for any motorcycles in the group.  All of the all-inclusive areas are handicap accessible.

Returning to the general-admission seating, the 200-level offers attendees four loge-seating options. Loge bleachers in sections 201-205 and 233-238, outfield-boxes in sections 206-209 and 228-232, infield-boxes in sections 210-227, and loge diamond boxes which are designated as the first rows in the infield-box sections. The 200-level is the most wheelchair accessible area of Miller Park, with only sections 207, 210, 213, 215-219, 222, 224, 229, 231, and 236-237 as exceptions.

Perhaps willing to break the bank a bit for your Brewers experience? Then the field-level seats are for you. Like the loge-seating, the field-level provides bleacher, infield, outfield, and diamond box areas in the 100 sections. Field bleachers pricing is featured behind right-field in sections 101-104. Outfield-boxes straddle the warning track on the left and right sides of the diamond, taking up sections 106-109 and 126-131. Infield-boxes and diamond boxes again share sections in the 100-level, residing directly behind both the dugouts and home plate in sections 110-125.

Packers Green Versus Gold Package | What Does That Mean?

Do you wonder what the Packers "Green" versus "Gold" package means? Is there some sort of way to find out which games are which? Ticket King has your answer. First, you don't really need to know which games are "Green" or "Gold" we sell Green Bay tickets for every home and away game on the schedule. But there are some things to know about how the tickets are divided.

It helps to understand that at one time (up until ten years ago,) the Packers played two regular season games at County Stadium in Milwaukee Wisconsin. They also played a preseason game in Milwaukee each year. Believe it or not, there wasn't such high demand for Packer tickets during the 1970's. The franchise struggled to fill Lambeau Field. Their solution was to court the fans that lived in Milwaukee. After all, Milwaukee is over five times the size of Green Bay. So the organization split the season tickets.  The "Green Package" covers seven games (one preseason, and six regular season games in total.)  The "Gold Package" covers the three games that used to be played in Milwaukee (one preseason, and two regular season games.)

Milwaukee Fans Drive To Green Bay For Gold Games

When the Packers decided to move those games back up to Lambeau Field, that meant the Milwaukee season ticket holders would have to drive two hours north to see their team play. For 2013, the Gold games are October 6 and November 10.  On those days, expect traffic to be heavy on interstate 43, leading to Green Bay from the Milwaukee area.  All the other home games are "Green" package games.  While traffic can be heavy going into and out of Green Bay on any game day, it tends to disburse outward into all directions on "Green" package days.

Bon Jovi Resch Center Tickets For Green Bay | Ticket King Wisconsin

Bon Jovi Green Bay Resch Center tickets
Bon Jovi comes to the Resch Center in Green Bay on October 22. The name of the tour is "Because We Can." When did Bon Jovi last play in Green Bay? This will be the band's first time in Titletown. Fans are excited to see this legendary group head north of the bigger cities in Wisconsin. After all, there are lots of fans all over Wisconsin. Tickets for the Green Bay Bon Jovi show are on sale September 16.

Because We Can Tour Rolls To Green Bay Wisconsin 

The band's current tour started back in February of this year.  The band crossed the country from east to west, with their last American show date at the HP Pavilion in San Jose. From there, the group played a pair of dates in South Africa. From there it was on to Europe, playing dates in Bulgaria, Germany, Sweden, Finland, and the UK.  One of the biggest shows on the tour was their July 5 stop in London. They played in front of 20,000+ fans in Hyde Park.  From there, it was back to the United States, where the band performed in stadiums, and a few large indoor venues. Rain or shine, the band played on.

In comparison, the Resch Center is a small venue for such a huge group. There will be just under 10,000 seats available for the show, so they are going to move fast. Be advised that some seats might be "obstructed view" seats, so it's best to check with our staff at Ticket King for the best options. Floor seating will be assigned, with five sections and no elevation.  Some of the best seating is just to the right and left of the stage, elevated.

Caron Butler Now A Milwaukee Buck | Bucks Trade Smith and Kravstov To Phoenix

Caron Butler Milwaukee Bucks
Caron Butler is coming home. The Racine native, and 11 year veteran of the NBA was traded to the Bucks last week. In exchange, Milwaukee sent point guard Ish Smith and center Viacheslav Kravstov to the Phoenix Suns, where Butler had played since July. Smith appeared in 16 games with the Bucks after joining the team in February as part of the J.J. Redick swap; Kravstov spent only the month of August in team's summer camp before departing.

Butler's homecoming is bittersweet. A product of a difficult childhood in Racine, he was arrested more than 15 times by his 15th birthday. His high school career in the city was often eclipsed by his street-troubles, as he saw more court-time at the county's juvenile penitentiary than on Racine High School's gym floor. An enrollment in the Maine Central Institute when he was 17 saved Butler, however, as he flourished on the independent school's team during his final two years of high school.

Following his time at the Maine Central Institute, Butler's basketball career was in full-swing. Awarded a scholarship to play under Jim Calhoun at the University of Connecticut in 2000, he finished that year as the Huskies top scorer and rebounder. He took home a gold medal at the 2001 FIBA World Championships for Young Men.

After another standout season his sophomore year at UConn, Butler applied for the draft in 2002. The Miami Heat took him with their first-round pick at 10th overall, though injuries during his second season with the team saw him traded to the Lakers in 2005. Butler wouldn't see any playing-time in Los Angeles before being sent to Washington for remainder of the 2005 season. 

Butler’s Time At Washington Made Him A Standout Player

With the Wizards, the small forward became a mainstay of the team's scoring trio. He, Antawn Johnson, and Gilbert Arenas led Washington to a playoff berth against Cleveland in the 2006 playoffs, though a loss in game 6 dropped them from competition. Despite that, the Wizards renegotiated a four-year contract with Butler worth $46 million. He would remain in Washington until 2010, earning All-Star honors twice during that time.

Denied an extension following the expiration of his contract with the Wizards in 2010, Butler played on a single-year deal until February, when he given to Dallas in exchange for four players. The Mavericks would eventually win an NBA title just a year later; though knee surgery kept Butler from assisting that effort. He was released by Dallas in late 2011, but recovered quickly with a three-year signing with the Clippers.
