The BMO Club will be an all-inclusive, event-level club in the new Bucks arena that offers unprecedented access. It will be the most exclusive club space in the arena and will have a direct connection to the player tunnel. 

“The Bucks are excited for what the future holds with BMO Harris Bank as a Founding Partner of our new arena,” Bucks President Peter Feigin said. “BMO Harris Bank has been a long-time valued partner of the Bucks and our expanding relationship demonstrates to our customers, fans and employees our deep-rooted commitment both organizations have to Milwaukee and the state of Wisconsin.”
