MILWAUKEE — The Milwaukee Bucks are on the verge of making history, and the team is making some changes to the Deer District to ensure tens-of-thousands of fans can get in on the excitement.

While the Deer District previously accommodated roughly 20,000 fans, the Bucks have expanded the area to allow up to 65,000 fans to attend the outdoor watch party.

The main stage and screen will now be located on the north end of Block 6 of the Deer District which is directly north of Fiserv Forum between Vel R. Phillips Avenue and Fifth Street.

The watch party will stretch across Juneau Avenue, which will be closed between Sixth and Old World Third streets. It will continue onto the plaza at Fiserv Forum. Vel R. Phillips Avenue will also be closed between McKinley and Juneau avenues.

Prior to the game, the Milwaukee Public Health Department is hosting a vaccination clinic. Anyone who gets their shot will be entered into a drawing to win two tickets to Game 6.

Gates for the Deer District open at 6 p.m. Tipoff for Game 6 is scheduled for 8 p.m.
