  • MILWAUKEE BUSINESSES COULD SHELL OUT BIG BUCKS FOR BREWERS

         A pledge to guarantee the Brewers a season-ticket base of
    10,000 seats this year "could cost the local business community
    more than $1 million," according to Craig Gilbert of the
    MILWAUKEE JOURNAL SENTINEL.  The Metro Milwaukee Assoc of
    Commerce (MMAC) and the Greater Milwaukee Committee made a
    "multi-year pledge" in January to guarantee Brewers season ticket
    sales.  Thus far, sales are "more than 25% short" of that target.
    MMAC President Tim Sheehy said the group still plans to work with
    the team to sell additional partial season ticket packages.  The
    two groups have also offered pledges for future years, including
    10,000 in '96, 12,000 for '97, and a guarantee of 2.2 million
    attendance in '98, '99 and 2000 (MILWAUKEE JOURNAL SENTINEL,
    7/27).

  • REDSKINS SCORE EARLY IN BATTLE FOR NEW STADIUM IN MARYLAND

         The Redskins "received a rare open-arms welcome from a local
    government yesterday," with the approval of a zoning change that
    could cut a year from the process of building a new stadium from
    a Prince George's County Council committee, according to this
    morning's WASHINGTON POST.  Redskins Owner Jack Kent Cooke wants
    to build a 78,000-seat stadium in suburban Landover near the
    Capital Beltway.  The full council is expected to vote on the
    zoning changes in September (David Leonhardt, WASHINGTON POST,
    7/28).

  • THE OLD BAIT AND LIFT AT THE NEW FLEETCENTER?

         The invoices filling the mailboxes of the 700 businesses
    that signed up for executive and skysuite boxes at the new
    FleetCenter are about 15% higher than the "already formidable
    rental fees agreed to just a year ago," reports Alex Beam in this
    morning's BOSTON GLOBE.  New Boston Garden Corp. President Larry
    Moulter explains that the Celtics and Bruins "unexpectedly jacked
    up" their top ticket prices from $40 to $70 and $60, "which sent
    the skybox prices skyrocketing."  Moulter:  "The concept of an
    increase was never unknown to these people but the specifics
    certainly came as a surprise" (BOSTON GLOBE, 7/28).
