Brewers Officially Reach Three Million Tickets Sold Today
It’s been a long talked about “magic” number for the Milwaukee Brewers–three million tickets sold. Today, for the third time in franchise history, the Milwaukee Brewers have 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).
This is very exciting news and a testament to our fans. It has definitely shown in the standings as the Brewers have the best home record in Major League Baseball. It is great to see large crowds day in and day out at Miller Park. We are very fortunate in Milwaukee to have such a great team, a great ballpark and great fans!
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.
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.
