Up to 65,000 Milwaukee Bucks fans can enter the outdoor “Deer District” adjacent to Fiserv Forum for Game 6 on Tuesday.
The Deer District held up to 25,000 fans for previous playoff games. The open plaza next to the Bucks’ home stadium includes beer and food concessions with the game airing live on a big screen.
“It’s going to be amazing,” Giannis Antetkounmpo said of the Bucks playing at home Tuesday. “Hopefully we can focus on what we got to do, be in the present, compete as much as possible, play good basketball and be the team that wins at the end. Hopefully we can enjoy it with our family and with the fans and they can enjoy it also. I feel like it’s something that you can feel the excitement in the city. The last time we were in the NBA Finals was 1974. It’s been awhile. I’m happy that the fans are enjoying it. There’s 20,000 people in the arena, 25,000 people outside the arena. But we got to focus. We got to do our job. Then they can do their job celebrating at the end. But we got to do our job first.”
The main screen for viewing is being moved and the space expanded with street closures as the Bucks attempt to close out the NBA Finals and win their first championship since 1971.
