There are plenty of questions still out there in regards to the Milwaukee Admirals move to the UW-Milwaukee Panther Arena. One of the more interesting questions is actually a simple one. Is my sweet spot, in terms of a seat at the BMO Harris Bradley Center, going to be just as good across the street?
That question can be answered on site this coming Monday because the Admirals and the UW-Milwaukee Panther Arena will have an Open House Night from 4pm to 8pm. This will allow season ticket holders and interested spectators to see the future arena layout in hockey configuration.
Press Release via Milwaukee Admirals:
Milwaukee, WI—The Milwaukee Admirals will hold their first open house at the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee Panther Arena this Monday, March 28 from 4:00 to 8:00 pm.
The event is free and open to the public and is the first opportunity for fans to take a look the layout and configuration of the rink and to pick potential seat locations for season tickets for the 2016-17 Season. Fans who are interested in a particular seat can put $50 down and that will secure their spot on a seniority-based list for seat selection.
The UWM-Panther Arena will have both concession and merchandise stands open for the event, and while there won’t be ice down there will be goals in place and the red and blue lines will be taped down to give fans some perspective on where the seats are located. In addition, there will be public Wi-Fi available for fans to use.
There is free parking available for the event in the surface lot that is just south of the UWMPA. Fans should enter the lot from Wells St. and then take a ticket from the attendant. Fans should then bring that ticket into the event where a member of the Admirals staff will validate it.
Fans with further questions about the event are encouraged to call the Admirals office at (414) 227-0550.
Personally, I’ve not been in the UW-Milwaukee Panther Arena since I was probably below the age of 10-years old when a supercross or monster trucks event took place at what was then called the US Cellular Arena. Times have changed and so has the UW-Milwaukee Panther Arena. I feel I’m not alone in not having visited across the street in a long time so this event should provide a great re-introduction for people such as myself – and quite possibly an introduction, period, for others. This should be a fun way to get to know the surroundings and start getting the building to slowly but surely be the home of the Milwaukee Admirals.
