MILWAUKEE, WISCONSIN Game On In Milwaukee! MILWAUKEE’S REPUTATION AS an attractive, affordable, sports-friendly city continues to grow. Sought after by both professional and amateur sports events, the Wisconsin Center is ideally suited to a wide range of configurations. Both the center and newly renovated UWMilwaukee Panther Arena have played host to fencing, table tennis, volleyball and gymnastics events. Skywalks to the Hilton Milwaukee City Center and Hyatt Regency Milwaukee hotels link some 1,200 rooms to the Wisconsin Center. Milwaukee’s winning lineup of first-class facilities also includes Miller Park with its unique, fan-shaped retractable roof, home of the Milwaukee Brewers. The BMO Harris Bradley Center, home of the Milwaukee Bucks, AHL Milwaukee Admirals and Marquette University Golden Eagles, also played host to the 2014 NCAA Division I Men’s Basketball Tournament.
