The Bradley Center is an indoor arena in Milwaukee, Wisconsin. It is home to the Milwaukee Bucks of the NBA, the Milwaukee Admirals of the AHL (and formerly of the IHL) and the Marquette University men's basketball team. It was also the former home of the Milwaukee Wave of the MISL and the Milwaukee Mustangs of the AFL from 1994-2001.
The arena was completed in 1988 at a cost of $90 million. It was gift to the State of Wisconsin by philanthropists Jane Pettit and Lloyd Pettit in memory of her late father, Harry Lynde Bradley of Allen-Bradley fortune. The arena seats 20,000 for end-stage concerts, 18,717 for NBA games, 19,000 for college basketball, and 17,800 for ice hockey.
Currently, the Bradley Center is one of the oldest arenas used in the NBA. As the end of the Bucks Bradley Center lease drawns near, the future of the Bradley Center is uncertain.
