The Milwaukee Bucks have made the following adjustments to accommodate an increased number of fans visiting Fiserv Forum and Deer District for Game 6 of the NBA Finals Tuesday night.
Gates to Fiserv Forum will open two hours prior to tipoff at 6 p.m. CT on Tuesday. Heavy traffic is expected throughout Deer District on Tuesday and fans with tickets to the game are encouraged to arrive early. Fans with tickets to the game will also have their own dedicated express entrance to the plaza located on the north side of Fiserv Forum near the intersection of Juneau Avenue and Fifth Street.
The Deer District watch party, which has drawn tens of thousands of people to the plaza at Fiserv Forum and throughout Deer District, has been expanded, due to growing demand, to allow up to 65,000 fans to attend. The main stage and screen will now be located on Block 6 of Deer District, which is directly north of Fiserv Forum between Vel R. Phillips Avenue and Fifth Street. The main stage and screen will be setup on the north end of Block 6 near the intersection of Fifth Street and McKinley Avenue.
The watch party will then stretch back across Juneau Avenue, which will be closed between Sixth Street and Old World Third Street, and continue onto the plaza at Fiserv Forum. Vel R. Phillips Avenue will also be closed between McKinley Avenue and Juneau Avenue. Additional viewing screens will be setup on the plaza.
Gates to the Deer District watch party will open at 6 p.m. CT. Fans planning to attend the watch party in Deer District are encouraged to RSVP at www.bucks.com/playoffs to receive the most up-to-date information and guidance.
