Bucks name BMO Harris Bank as founding partner of new arena

The Milwaukee Bucks and BMO Harris Bank are renewing their long-standing relationship, as BMO Harris Bank becomes a Founding Partner of the new Bucks arena. BMO Harris Bank also remains the official Bank of the Milwaukee Bucks.

As part of the partnership, the new BMO Club will be launched on the event level of the new arena. As well, the Bucks and BMO Harris Bank have also teamed up to debut a new BMO Harris Bucks Debit Mastercard – giving Bucks fans the opportunity to have a Bucks-branded debit card from the official bank of the Milwaukee Bucks.

"The Bucks have generated tremendous energy and excitement throughout Milwaukee, energy that will only increase when the new arena opens next year," said David Casper, president and CEO, BMO Harris Bank. "We are thrilled to be part of that excitement by making a long-term commitment as a Founding Partner of the new arena, building on our 25-year relationship with the Bucks."

The BMO Club will be an all-inclusive, event-level club in the new Bucks arena that offers unprecedented access. It will be the most exclusive club space in the arena and will have a direct connection to the player tunnel.

"The Bucks are excited for what the future holds with BMO Harris Bank as a Founding Partner of our new arena," Bucks President Peter Feigin said. "BMO Harris Bank has been a long-time valued partner of the Bucks and our expanding relationship demonstrates to our customers, fans and employees our deep-rooted commitment both organizations have to Milwaukee and the state of Wisconsin.

The BMO Harris Bucks Debit Mastercard is the perfect card for Bucks fans to add to their wallet's starting lineup, one that unlocks the full BMO Effect for cardholders. All season long fans who use their BMO Harris Bucks Debit Mastercard can receive discounts on Bucks merchandise at Bucks Pro Shops inside the BMO Harris Bradley Center. On BMO Harris Bank Nights at the BMO Harris Bradley Center this upcoming season, fans who use their BMO Harris Bucks Debit Mastercard will receive concession discounts, early entry to Bucks games, and special events such as happy hours and other fun surprises throughout the season. Additional cardholder benefits will be available in the new Bucks arena as well.

"The Bucks debit card gives us another fun way to engage with Bucks fans and share our mutual support of the team," said Jud Snyder, Senior Executive, Milwaukee, BMO Harris Bank. "Not only does the card look fantastic, it also provides the cardholder with a host of BMO Effect perks."

One of those additional benefits in the new arena for BMO Harris Bucks Debit Mastercard holders will be the BMO Entrance, which will give Bucks fans the full BMO Effect right as they enter. Anybody with a BMO Harris Bucks Debit Mastercard will have access to the BMO Entrance to the arena, which will have surprise giveaways, meet and greets and other special benefits throughout upcoming Bucks seasons in the new arena.
