1. Arrive early.

The doors typically open about 60 minutes before tip-off, and this is prime time for families.

The stadium is not as crowded, and you can watch the players warm-up. There’s usually some pre-game entertainment, too.

Arriving early also ensures you don’t miss the exciting player announcements and the national anthem.

2. Make signs.

Arriving early will also give you plenty of time to make signs!

Attending a Milwaukee Bucks game is a thrilling experience, and one way to show your support for the team is by making a sign to hold up during the game.

Whether you’re a die-hard fan or a casual spectator, making a sign is a great way to add some extra fun and excitement to your time at the Fiserv Forum.

You can make signs outside of Section 101 and 201.

Include your favorite player’s name, a catchy slogan, or simply a message of support for the team. Just remember to keep it appropriate and respectful.

Once you’ve made your sign, hold it up high during the game to show your support and help create an energetic atmosphere in the arena.

Who knows, you and your sign might even end up on the Jumbotron!

3. Head to the Kohls Court Kids Zone.

Be sure to stop by Kohl’s Court, the family activity center located on the Main Concourse in the northeast corner of Fiserv Forum.

There is always plenty for families to take part in.

There’s an oversizes basketball hoop and Bango bench for opportunities, Bucks replica lockers, a DJ, crafts, and other family-friendly activities.

4. Get a First Game Certificate.

If you’re taking your child to their first Milwaukee Bucks game at the Fiserv Forum, you’ll definitely want to commemorate the occasion with a first game certificate.

Not only is it a fun keepsake for your child, but it’s also a great way to celebrate their introduction to the world of basketball.

To get a first game certificate, simply head to the Guest Services desk located on the Main Concourse near Section 109 and 212.

There, you’ll find a friendly Bucks representative who can help you fill out the necessary information and print out a personalized certificate for your child.

It’s quick, easy, and best of all, free!

5. Attend a Family Night.

The Bucks offer special Family Nights throughout the season, and the tickets include a hot dog and soda that you redeem through the app.
