Milwaukee is a city of sports. It is home to the Milwaukee Brewers professional baseball team, which won the 2011 National League Central Division Championship and plays its home games at Miller Park, a 42,000-seat baseball stadium just west of downtown.
There’s also the 18,000-seat Bradley Center, home to the Milwaukee Bucks NBA professional basketball team, and the Milwaukee Admirals, which won the American Hockey League’s West Division title in 2009. The U.S. Cellular Arena is home to the Milwaukee Wave professional soccer team, the oldest continuously operated professional soccer team in the U.S.
Green Bay, home of the legendary Green Bay Packers and Lambeau Field, is just a few hours north of Milwaukee. The Packer Hall of Fame includes memorabilia from this legendary team, including the trophy from the 2012 Super Bowl.
Just one hour west of Milwaukee is Madison’s Camp Randall, home of the University of Wisconsin Badgers, which is abuzz with activity on Saturdays when the team is in town. Sporting enthusiasts can also watch two Division I college basketball teams in Milwaukee – the Marquette University Golden Eagles and the University of Wisconsin - Milwaukee Panthers.
