Today, the owners of the Milwaukee Bucks have announced their intention to collaborate with Marquette University on a sports medicine and health and wellness initiative. Together, they are in the early stages of planning to construct a new, world-class, multi-purpose sports medicine and research facility to support the program.

Issues surrounding athlete health and performance are receiving increased attention throughout the NBA, other professional sports leagues and universities nationwide. Given the importance of these issues, the ownership of the Milwaukee Bucks and Marquette University are partnering to make significant investments in the health and well-being of their players and students, respectively. The partnership intends to build a world-class facility in downtown Milwaukee that supports elite-level sports science and medicine, health and wellness, as well as academic research initiatives.

Milwaukee Bucks co-owner Wes Edens stated, “When our group purchased the team, we made a promise to make an impact on and off the court. We are committed to upholding this promise. The development of this world-class facility will not only benefit Bucks players and Marquette students, but as a cutting-edge leader in the sports medicine space, it will benefit the entire region and make Wisconsin an even greater attraction worldwide. We are excited to take this first step and partner with Marquette on this endeavor.”

The development is expected to be built on land Marquette University recently acquired in the 800 block of West Michigan Street.
