Wisconsin basketball teams set to play at American Family Field this fall

College basketball is coming to American Family Field.

The Milwaukee Brewers home park is scheduled to host a doubleheader Nov. 11 with the Wisconsin men’s basketball team facing Stanford and the women’s team taking on Kansas State.

“Playing a game at American Family Field has been a vision for quite some time and I am so excited to see it become a reality,” men’s basketball coach Greg Gard said in a release. “We are always looking to play in exciting venues and competitions and the chance to be the first-ever basketball event at the Brewers stadium is going to be an unforgettable experience for both our athletes and fans.”

Coming off her first season in Madison, women’s basketball coach Marissa Mosley is especially excited about the exposure this kind of game will give her program, along with women’s college basketball overall.

“We are absolutely thrilled for our team to be competing in the Brew City Battle,” Moseley said in a release. “This doubleheader with our men’s program is an incredible opportunity for not only our players, but also for our fans to experience Badger basketball in such a unique environment. Being able to play on the home field of the reigning NL Central champions and just down the road from the NBA Champions, sets the stage for a great event. This is an unbelievable platform for girls and women in sports as we celebrate the 50th anniversary of Title IX and we can’t wait to see you all there.”

The men’s program has played in some unique venues over the years, especially in the NCAA Tournament. It includes Final Fours at the RCA Dome in Indianapolis, AT&T Stadium in Arlington, Texas and Lucas Oil Field in Indianapolis. The team has also played games at Ford Field in Detroit and the Metrodome in Minneapolis.

This will not be the first time the stadium in Milwaukee has hosted something other than a baseball game. The venue, which opened in 2001 and was called Miller Park until 2021, has been the site of regular concerts and soccer friendlies through the years. But this will be the first basketball game at the park and the first college game at a baseball stadium since 2015 in San Diego.

Tickets will go on sale to the public July 26. More information is available at BrewCityBattle.com.
