Bucks Announce 2013 Preseason Schedule
Three in-state contests highlight seven-game preseason slate; 37th MACC Fund game slated for Oct. 25
The Milwaukee Bucks will play three Wisconsin-based home games during the 2013 preseason, including two at the BMO Harris Bradley Center and one at the Resch Center in Green Bay, the team announced today. Information regarding ticket on-sale dates and locations for Milwaukee's three home preseason games will be announced in the coming days.
The Bucks will make their first BMO Harris Bradley Center appearance of the preseason on Saturday, Oct 12, when they host the Charlotte Bobcats. Milwaukee will close out its BMO Harris Bradley Center preseason slate with the 37th Annual MACC Fund Game on Friday, Oct. 25 vs. the Toronto Raptors. This annual event is the cornerstone of the Bucks 36-year founding commitment to Midwest Athletes Against Childhood Cancer. Since the inaugural event in 1977, the annual MACC Fund Game has raised more than $1.2 million dollars for children's cancer research at the Midwest Children's Cancer Center in Milwaukee.
Sandwiched between Milwaukee's two BMO Harris Bradley Center games is a return to the Resch Center in Green Bay, where the Bucks will host an exhibition game for the second straight season. Fans in Green Bay and northeastern Wisconsin are invited to come out to the Resch Center on Wednesday, Oct. 23 to see the Bucks take on Carmelo Anthony and the New York Knicks.
The Bucks tip-off their preseason slate at the Cleveland Cavaliers on Tuesday, Oct. 8. The remainder of the preseason schedule includes road matchups against the Minnesota Timberwolves (in Sioux Falls, S.D.) on Thursday, Oct. 10, the Memphis Grizzlies on Thursday, Oct. 15, and the Chicago Bulls on Monday, Oct. 21.
