Bucks unveil 2017-18 promotional calendar, including six Classic Nights
The Milwaukee Bucks announced on Thursday the six Classic Nights games that highlight their promotional calendar for the team's upcoming 50th Anniversary season. For each of the six home games, the Bucks will wear their Classic Edition jerseys, Nike's modern update to the original uniform from Milwaukee's inaugural 1968 season.
The first of the Classic Nights is on Oct. 26, when the Bucks host the Boston Celtics at UW-Milwaukee Panther Arena. The Return to the MECCA game is the first time the Bucks will have hosted a regular-season home contest off-site in Wisconsin since they played three games in Madison in 1974-75.

The other Classic Nights are Dec. 8 against the Dallas Mavericks, at which fans will receive a 50th Anniversary cap; Jan. 5 vs. the Toronto Raptors, where a Giannis Antetokounmpo Starting Lineup figurine will be given away; Jan. 26 against Brooklyn Nets, at which kids can get a Jon McGlocklin youth jersey; Feb. 27 vs. the Washington Wizards, when the giveaway is a retro musical alarm clock; and March 4 against the Philadelphia 76ers, where fans will receive a Ray Allen lunch bag.
Results of the Milwaukee Bucks All-50th Team fan vote will be announced at each of the five Classic Night after the Return to the MECCA game. For information on the All-50th Team fan vote, click here.
