Bucks New Arena Opening Postponed Until 2018

The new Milwaukee Bucks Arena will not open until the fall of 2018.

Jake Suski, Bucks Senior Vice President of Communications sent CBS 58 this statement:

While there isn't a specific time schedule attached to the construction phases outlined, our discussions with the city and construction plans have evolved over the past several weeks. Our working construction schedule now targets arena opening for the 2018-19 season.

We tried to do everything we could to put together a plan that would meet 2017-18 target date, but that simply isn't realistic given everything that needs to be done prior to groundbreaking and throughout the construction schedule. It's important to all of us to do this the right way, not simply the fastest way.

The Bucks open their season tomorrow night against the Knicks.
