MILWAUKEE BUSINESSES COULD SHELL OUT BIG BUCKS FOR BREWERS
Published July 28, 1995
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).
