The Wisconsin Herd, the NBA G League affiliate of the Milwaukee Bucks, will celebrate its parent club with a “Bucks Takeover” theme on Saturday, Feb. 10. The game against the Long Island Nets will feature appearances by Bucks’ mascot Bango, the Milwaukee Bucks Dancers, the high-flying Rim Rockers and more. The Herd will wear “Fear the Deer” inspired jerseys, which will be available for auction.
Fans interested in owning a game-worn theme jersey will have the opportunity to bid in person at Menominee Nation Arena beginning at the Herd’s home game on Friday, Feb. 9. The auction will close 15 minutes after the conclusion of the game on Saturday, Feb. 10. Proceeds will benefit the Milwaukee Bucks Foundation.
“The Herd plays an integral role in cultivating the organization-wide championship culture on and off the court,” said Bucks President Peter Feigin. “The Bucks Takeover game is an opportunity to celebrate the Herd’s inaugural season with fans in the Fox Valley while raising funds and increasing awareness for the Milwaukee Bucks Foundation.”
Established in 2016, the Milwaukee Bucks Foundation aims to improve outcomes for underserved populations in Wisconsin by providing financial grants, developing innovative partnerships and supporting impactful ideas in Youth Education, Youth Health and Wellness, and Community betterment. The Milwaukee Bucks Foundation plans to announce its second cycle of grants made to nonprofits statewide this summer.
“Our goal is to emulate the fun and innovative culture synonymous with the Bucks in Oshkosh,” said Wisconsin Herd President Steve Brandes. “We are excited to bring the energy of the Bucks Entertainment Network to Menominee Nation Arena and contribute to the Milwaukee Bucks Foundation’s statewide impact.”
Limited seats are available for the game. Single-game tickets can be purchased at TicketStarOnline.com, over the phone (800-895-0071), at Menominee Nation Arena’s box office (1212 S. Main Street, Oshkosh) and at the Resch Center Box Office (1901 S. Oneida Street, Green Bay).
