About Fiserv Forum
Looking for that new-car smell when it comes to basketball arenas? Well, we have got a venue for you! The Fiserv Forum, located in downtown Milwaukee, has the distinction of not just one of the newest multi-purpose indoor event centers in Wisconsin but anywhere else. It’s so new and packed with amenities it’s still got the plastic wrap on!
The History of the Fiserv Forum
Truth be told, the Fiserv Forum’s advent was none too soon. Designed to replace the BMO Harris Bradley Center, the Forum opened its doors in 2018 and not a moment too soon. The Bradley Center was the third oldest arena in the NBA at the time, as it dated all the way back to 1988. The difference, though, is that the two older arenas, Madison Square Garden and the Oracle Arena, had been renovated extensively where the Bradley Center had not.
It was time. The wrecking ball swung. Out of the rubble like a phoenix rose the Fiserv Forum.
What Makes the Fiserv Forum So Special?
Being brand-spanking-new will only get you so far, but the Fiserv Forum has the chops to be a slap-bang venue for years to come. It’s got the largest center-hung scoreboard in the entirety of the league, making it easy to watch the action from any angle. It was also custom-built to accommodate a hockey rink as well, opening major opportunities for hockey. Come on, you think a venue in Milwaukee would forget winter sports? Whatever you’re there to see, though, it’s a perfect venue. Whether you’re catching a concert or eagerly awaiting your chance to see the Bucks, you’re going to have a wild time!
