Bucks open 10,000 seats for watch party inside Fiserv Forum during NBA Finals away games
MILWAUKEE (CBS 58) -- In addition to the thousands of fans outside in the Deer District, the Milwaukee Bucks plan to open 10,000 seats inside Fiserv Forum for fans to watch the NBA Finals during away games.
Tickets will be just $10.
The seats are located in the lower bowl of Fiserv Forum, and will allow fans to watch the game -- in air conditioning -- on the arena’s state-of-the-art Daktronics scoreboard. Concessions will be open.
"We've been overwhelmed with the support that we've had from fans so far, and so we're excited to be able to extend out watch party opportunities to get as many people down here to be a part of this as we can."
Part of the proceeds will benefit the Milwaukee Bucks Foundation.
The Bucks said they have expanded the outdoor viewing area in the Deer District as much as possible. The area will no hold more than $25,000.

The Bucks also released 500 standing room only tickets for the first two home games of the series Sunday, July 11, and Wednesday, July 14. Prices for those tickets start at $350. There are still tickets available for the first two home games.
"What we really recommend fans is continue looking at Ticketmaster.com," Godsey said. "Whether it's primary seats being released by the team going through, or that secondary market, fan to fan sales. That's the way fans are going to guarantee that the tickets are authentic, verified, and that the tickets are good when they show up for the game."
The Bucks expect the security and traffic flow for the outdoor watch parties to be very similar to the Eastern Conference Finals.
