MILWAUKEE (July 31, 2018) – The Milwaukee Bucks will play the first-ever game at Fiserv Forum on Wednesday, Oct. 3 at 7 p.m. (CT) when they open the 2018 preseason schedule against the Chicago Bulls.

As the Bucks’ home preseason slate continues, the team will face the Minnesota Timberwolves on Friday, Oct. 12, in the 42nd MACC Fund game. The annual MACC Fund Game is the cornerstone of the Bucks’ over 40-year founding commitment to Midwest Athletes Against Childhood Cancer, Inc.

Tickets for both Fiserv Forum games will go on sale at 10 a.m. (CT) on Monday, Aug. 6, and can be purchased at www.bucks.com or by calling 1-877-4NBA-TIX. Groups looking to purchase tickets for both home games should call (414) 227-0599 to speak with a Bucks representative.
