Bucks tickets selling for highest prices in Wisconsin history

Want to see the Milwaukee Bucks potentially clinch their first NBA championship in 50 years? Get ready to pay up.

Even the cheapest ticket for Game 6 of the NBA Finals on Tuesday is now in the four-figure range after the Bucks took a 3-2 lead in Game 5 against the Phoenix Suns. The Bucks are now one win away from their first championship since 1971, when Kareem Abdul-Jabbar and Oscar Robertson were starring for Milwaukee.

The cheapest ticket currently available for Game 6 on StubHub comes in at $1,098 … for a standing room only ticket. Want a place to actually sit down? That’ll run you at least $1,588.

And if you happen to have $20,250 lying around, you — yes, you — can sit courtside at the Fiserv Forum.

All of that adds up to the most expensive ticket in state history, as Mike Holzberg, owner of the Milwaukee-based Connections Ticket Services, told the Milwaukee Business Journal:

“This is absolutely far and away the most expensive ticket we’ve ever seen in the state of Wisconsin,” Holzberg said.

Why Game 6 is Wisconsin’s most expensive ticket

Game 6 being Wisconsin’s most expensive ticket ever isn’t too surprising if you’re familiar with Wisconsin sports. 

Each of the Green Bay Packers’ Super Bowls were played at least 1,000 miles away from the state. The Wisconsin Badgers’s biggest bowl games are also far away, by nature of bowl season. The Milwaukee Brewers have only played in one World Series in 1982, and tickets for the later games of the 2018 NLCS stayed in the three-figure range. The Bucks’ lone championship was clinched in Washington, and the Milwaukee Braves’ 1957 title was also clinched on the road.

Of course, ticket prices could go up even higher if the Suns win and send the series back to Phoenix. The cheapest ticket for that game on StubHub right now: $1,104.
