Brewers officially hit three million mark
News from the Brewers that we previewed on MLB.com a couple of days ago:
The Milwaukee Brewers today announced that the club has eclipsed three million tickets sold for the 2011 season. This marks the third time in franchise history that the Club has eclipsed three million (also in 2008 and 2009).
Today’s date is the second-earliest that the Club has reached the milestone in a season, missing the 2008 record by just two days. In 2008, the mark was reached on August 28 while in 2009, it came on September 2.
The Brewers currently have sold out 27 games on the season and through 66 home games have a season attendance of 2,453,617. The Brewers average attendance of 37,176 currently ranks ninth- highest in all of Major League Baseball. In 2008, the Brewers established a franchise attendance record with 3,068,458 tickets sold.
“Reaching three million tickets sold is the ultimate testament to the passion of Brewers fans, and it speaks volumes about their commitment to supporting the Club,” said Brewers Chief Operating Officer Rick Schlesinger. “With the team currently holding the best home record in Major League Baseball, our fans have played a huge role in creating the best home field advantage in the game.”
The Brewers have 15 home games remaining in the 2011 regular season, beginning with tonight’s series-opener against the Cardinals. Tickets remain for all future games, but advance purchase is strongly encouraged as availability for some games is limited.
Individual tickets may be purchased online at brewers.com, the Miller Park Box Office and by calling 414-902-4000.
