March Madness will go through Milwaukee once again, as today Fiserv Forum announced that the arena, in partnership with Marquette University, will host first and second round games in the 2025 NCAA men's basketball tournament.
Fiserv Forum was already selected to host first and second round games during the 2022 NCAA tournament as well.
“The NCAA Division I Men’s Basketball Championship is one of the premier sporting events in the country, and we’re excited to welcome the tournament to Fiserv Forum twice in a four-year span,” said Milwaukee Bucks and Fiserv Forum President Peter Feigin, in a release. “We’re grateful for our partnership with Marquette, and we look forward to co-hosting these games in our world-class venue.”
“We are looking forward to hosting the 2022 and 2025 NCAA Division I Men’s Basketball Championship First and Second rounds with Fiserv Forum,” Marquette Vice President and Director of Athletics Bill Scholl said, in the release. “The Bucks have been tremendous partners with the university, and we couldn’t be more excited to showcase the arena and city of Milwaukee to college basketball fans from around the country.”
Milwaukee previously hosted first and second round NCAA men's basketball tournament games in 2017 at the BMO Harris Bradley Center. The now-demlished arena held March Madness matchups seven times over its existence.
As much as it is a gigantic cliché to say that one has always had a passion for film, Matt Mueller has always had a passion for film. Whether it was bringing in the latest movie reviews for his first grade show-and-tell or writing film reviews for the St. Norbert College Times as a high school student, Matt is way too obsessed with movies for his own good.
When he's not writing about the latest blockbuster or talking much too glowingly about "Piranha 3D," Matt can probably be found watching literally any sport (minus cricket) or working at - get this - a local movie theater. Or watching a movie. Yeah, he's probably watching a movie.
