Bag Policy for American Family Field in Milwaukee

Every sports stadium or music venue has its own carry-in, or “bag policy” that must be followed. American Family Field in Milwaukee is no different. Whether it’s a Brewers game or a concert, there are rules you need to follow before you enter the venue.

It’s always best to follow what the event staff advises during the fan entry and screening process. Check with the venue before you depart.

Packers vs. 49ers Playoff Game at Lambeau Field | Packers Tickets Available


The Green Bay Packers
will face the San Francisco 49ers in the NFC Divisional round of the playoffs this Saturday night. Packers playoff tickets for that game are in high demand as both high profile teams have fans that travel. Earlier this season, the Packers defeated the 49ers with a last second field goal. These two teams have faced each other many times in playoff situations. Aaron Rodgers & Co. will need to be firing on all cylinders in order to win in Green Bay. Playoff tickets for the game are going fast, now the the opponent and game time has been announced. 

The 49ers upset the Dallas Cowboys on the road last night, in a game that featured numerous penalties and a controversial situation involving the referees spotting the ball as time ran out. Dallas fans will no doubt find the fault completely on the shoulders of the officiating, while ignoring the fact that Dak Prescott handed the ball to his center after running a quarterback screen with just fifteen seconds to play. That play, and the mistake by Prescott, left no time on the clock for a spiked ball and hail Mary attempt. The 49ers took an early lead in that game and just held on. The Cowboys have the entire off-season to mull over what happened, but their focus should be on the fact that they were the most penalized team to make the playoffs this season. 

Packers fans would have preferred to face those penalty heavy Cowboys. Will the cold January weather favor the Packers this coming Saturday night? It certainly can’t hurt a team like Green Bay that is used to playing cold weather games. Should the Packers win on Saturday night, the NFC Championship game will take place at Lambeau Field the next weekend. 

Packers NFC North Title in 2021 | Playoffs Now a Lock

The 2021 Green Bay Packers regular season started off with a fizzle. The team took on the New Orleans Saints, with Aaron Rodgers sitting out the entire preseason. That was a game where the script was flipped and Jameis Winston threw five touchdown passes. Green Bay managed just three points against a Saints defense that was unstoppable. Packers fans were stunned. Aaron Rodgers asked us all to once again calm down and wait for better results. Green Bay went on to win the next seven games. He was correct, as the team shot up to lead the NFC North and never looked back. Yesterday, the Packers edged out the Baltimore Ravens and clinched the NFC North title once again. They are on their way in the playoffs, hoping for the first seed in the NFC. That would mean home field advantage throughout the playoffs and a bye week to start. Those same Saints that hobbled the Packers in week number one, managed to hold Tom Brady and the Tampa Bay Buccaneers scoreless in a Sunday Night game, currently placing the Packers at the top of the NFC. Will that lead hold? Only the Browns, Vikings and Lions have a chance to topple the Pack before the playoffs begin. At the same time, key starters are looking to get back into the game just as the playoffs begin. It’s sure to be an exciting playoff run. Packers tickets for the playoffs are now on sale. 

Rodgers Up For 2021 MVP

Aaron Rodgers is a leading candidate for Most Valuable Player, and if he keeps up his weekly performance he just might get that fourth nod from the powers that be. It’s doubtful that his goal is that title. It’s all about that Lombardi trophy at this time in his career. Could this be the team that brings that trophy back home to Green Bay? Many signs point to yes. 

First, we have to consider the fact that the Packers offensive line is strung together with string and chewing gum right now. At kickoff last night, there was a third string player protecting Rodgers in the pocket. Billy Turner, David Bakhtiari, Josh Myers, were all out once again. When the last seconds ticked off with the Packers taking the victory formation for the last play, Rodgers had been sacked three times that afternoon. The line is holding up. The defense is a top ten force. The offense does give up points in the first quarter of just about every game, but it seems like it’s just a matter of making defensive adjustments. Green Bay outscores their opponents in the second and third quarters by a country mile. 

With the playoffs a lock, it’s now down to where the team will land in the NFL bracket. The Buccaneers will surely right the ship after the shutout. The Dallas Cowboys might be the sleeper team that runs the table in the playoffs. The Cardinals were hot out of the gate, but have stumbled a bit in the past few weeks. It’s great to see the Packers in the playoffs once again. 

Brewers Playoff 2021 Division Series Even | Ticket King Inc.

The Milwaukee Brewers playoff record stands at 1-1 at the time of this post. The team lead their division for the bulk of the season, and they have high hopes for going deep in the playoffs. Will they make it all the way to the World Series? First things first. The team will have to take down the Atlanta Braves before moving on to the NLCS. Brewers playoff tickets for all home and away games are available on our Ticket King website. 

In game one of the NLDS series, both teams struggled to find footing in the early innings. Fans a American Family Field cheered through 6 1/2 scoreless innings before Rowdy Tellez smacked a home run off of Braves starting pitcher Charlie Morton. Morton was mowing down Brewers batters in the leadup to the home run. He fanned nine, and walked just one batter. 

The Braves had a spark of their own in the eighth, when Joc Pederson hit a home run with the bases empty. In the ninth, The Braves had men on the corners with two outs, but Josh Hader settled down just enough to get a game ending ground out to second base. In game two, the Braves scored a pair of runs in the third inning and never looked back. They added another run in the sixth, and shut out the Brewers to even the series. Game three and four will be at Atlanta.   

Bucks Win First Two Playoff Games at Fiserv | Brewers Get Hot

Ticket King Bucks Tickets

The Milwaukee Bucks are two games up on the Miami heat in the 2021 NBA playoffs. In this “limited seating” playoff run, the team has made it very exciting for those fans that have tickets to the games at Fiserv Forum

The team made it all but over in the first quarter of game two. The Bucks tied records for most points scored and three point shots in the first, and never let the Heat back into the game. This effort made up for their less than stellar effort in game one. The team heads to Miami for game three.  

 Brewers String Together Three Wins

The Milwaukee Brewers are coming back around to playing solid baseball. With their top-notch pitching staff, all the team needed were hot bats on offense. Prior to this three game win streak, those bats were cold. The team went 6-18 for the month of may, before winning the series against the Reds. Last night, the Padres were mowed down by great pitching, with the Brew Crew cutting the Padres win streak to just nine. The team his home for two more games, then they hit the road to take on the Nationals.  

Will We See Full Stadiums and Veneues In 2021? | Ticket King Wisconsin

We All Miss Live Events

It’s been too long since most of us have attended a concert or sporting event in person. We’re not counting those “limited capacity” NFL games that came at the end of the 2020 season, even though they looked promising. We’re talking about those sold out, 75,000 people in the stands, elbow to elbow, “high fiving” strangers, cheering yourself hoarse, games. We miss them. We miss being part of a crowd that erupts after a last second touchdown. We miss that special encore song that your favorite musician surprises you with at the end of a show. We miss it all. Are we back yet? Just about.

One thing holds true. When we are allowed to get back to normal, it’s going to be great. It’s going to be loud. It’s going to be fun! We all want to be there to enjoy the spectacle of it all when things come back. We’re social people. It’s hardwired into our being, to get together and enjoy it all. 

Ticket King was one of those companies that went from making dreams come true with great tickets to live events, to a company that spent a large part of 2020 refunding loyal customers and hoping we all make it to 2021 safely. Through it all, one thing holds true. When it’s safe, we want get together in person again to enjoy the thrill of music, sports, and theater. 

NFL Plans on Full Stadiums in 2021

It sure looks like the NFL will have full stadiums across the land this fall. The numbers are looking better and better each week, and those test runs that the NFL took in 2020 showed that people can attend an event without risking the health of those around them. Lambeau Field on a crisp fall afternoon is the place to be in 2021. 

 MLB Continues to Limit Capacity this Spring

Depending on the city or state, MLB teams are looking at limited capacity attendance for a bit longer. The Brewers hope to fill American Family Field seats with all those Brew Crew fans, but the approach is (so far) to keep safe.    

As the capacity restrictions are lifted, we’ll see more tickets become available for sporting events. Live music venues are already booking shows for fall of 2021. These are all good signs, and Ticket King is there for you when you need all the best tickets to live events in the country.   

Packers Tickets – Road Games in 2020 – Ticket King Wisconsin

As professional sports leagues have tried their best to return to some form of play, it is only natural for the fans to wonder if they too will be able to join in on the live action. Major League Baseball is deep into the 2020 playoffs, with no fans in the stands. The NHL wrapped up their short season in the same fashion. The most successful league in handling the pandemic would be the NBA. Their “bubble” was 100% effective, and fans got to see some great basketball as a reward. For Wisconsinites, we look to the Green Bay Packers. Where does the NFL stand when it comes to fans in the stands?

Each NFL team has the option to allow for fans to attend games, mostly in a limited number. NFL teams around the league are making decisions based on a number of factors. Case counts in the local region, whether the stadium is open air, or in a dome, even a bit of politics may come into play. When it comes to games at Lambeau Field, the first two home games of the 2020 season were going to be without fans right out of the box. From there, the Packers would make decisions based on the spread of the outbreak, and how well the state is handling things. Sadly, that has meant that Packers have little luck in getting “fans in the stands.” Wisconsin remains a hot spot, especially the Green Bay and Fox Valley Region. It’s quite unlikely that there will be any fans at Lambeau Field until the numbers go down.

Brewers Make Notable Moves for 2020 | Ticket King Inc.

Brewers Tickets
The Brewers had a rather busy off season, full of moves both big and small.  After fielding a very competitive team for the past two seasons, it’s time to see if the Brewers can repeat this feat a third year in a row. Let’s dive into the notable moves for 2020.
Zach Davies Trade– In late November, the Milwaukee Brewers traded starting pitcher Zach Davies and outfielder Trent Grisham to the San Diego Padres for left-handed pitcher Eric Lauer and infielder Luis Urias. Lauer is expected to fix a hole in the Brewers rotation, and Urias is expected to play shortstop, after he recovers from wrist surgery.  
Orlando Arcia/SS- The former prized prospect is running out of chances to make his mark. Milwaukee gave him a one-year contract and 2020 will be his final chance.  His defensive production was what kept him in the starting rotation, but that has since slipped.  
Keon Broxton/OF- In early December, the Brewers elected to sign Keon Broxton to a minor league deal. This includes an invitation to spring training. Will Broxton be the fourth outfielder at Miller Park this season?
Josh Lindblom/SP- On December 9th, David Stearns made a very interesting move, adding starting pitcher Josh Lindblom, a man who spent the last three seasons in the Korean League, on a three-year contract.
Avisail Garcia/OF- The Brewers added Garcia on a two-year contract. Based on who else is going to be in camp in Arizona with the club competing for an outfield spot, something tells me that David Stearns may have finally found a taker for Ryan Braun, and the details are still being worked out.
Eric Sogard/INF- In late December, Stearns brought back a former Brewer, Sogard to provide infield depth. Sogard did not produce the last time he was in a Brewers uniform, but while playing for the Blue Jays and Rays, his numbers improved. He hit 13 home runs in 2019, but what helped land him this Brewers contract was his play on defense and his ability to get the ball up in the air. He’s reduced his ground out rate considerably.
Justin Smoak/1B- On that same day, they added Smoak, who is expected to be the starting first baseman this season. Smoak has to prove himself. 2019 was not the best season for Smoak, batting just .208 for Toronto. Braun could slide into that position, should Justin flame out.
Craig Counsell– To be sure, the Brewers have hitched their wagon to Counsell, who got a big contract extension through the 2023 season. Let’s see if the gamble pays off in the long haul.
Jedd Gyroko/INF- The Brewers added Gyroko on a one-year contract in January and he is expected to be the other reserve infielder besides Sogard. Gyroko had an injury plagued 2019 season, so the contract with the Brewers includes incentives based on plate appearances. Specifically, Gyroko will fit at third against left handed pitchers. He can also produce against those same left handed opposing pitchers.
Shelby Miller/RHP- Milwaukee is going to try to rebuild this former prized prospect of the St. Louis Cardinals. This first round draft pick, way back when, wound up as an All Star in 2015. That came crashing down when he was traded to the Diamondbacks. His fastball was hitting just over 94 mph last year, and the Brew Crew picked him up with a minor league contract.  

What to Fix in Green Bay After NFC Championship Loss | Ticket King

Ticket King Packers Tickets
The Green Bay Packers went quietly into the night Sunday, losing 37-20 to the San Francisco 49ers. Still, it was an amazing season for the Packers, as they were expected to win seven games as coach and quarterback argued their way through the season. Instead, they won 13 games, were the two seed in the NFC, and reached the NFC Championship game. Let’s look at what the Packers need to fix for 2020.  
1. The Rush defense – What doomed the Packers all season and sunk them in the NFC Championship game was the rush defense. The pass rush was greatly improved by the Smith boys, and the pass defense was well improved also. But their rush defense needs work. Re-signing Blake Martinez will help, but they need to add an inside linebacker next to him, as well as a big body up front to help Kenny Clark stop the run. 
2. Rebuild the wide receiver unit behind Davante Adams- Yes, Davante Adams is about as good as it gets in the NFL right now. But, the depth behind him is not good at the moment. Marques Valdez-Scantling has really regressed in year two. It may be time to get rid of them all and start from zero. Possibly add two receivers in the draft early, and another one in free agency.
3. Add another young tight end- The Packers have been kicking the can down the road at the tight end position ever since the spinal injury that ended the career of JerMichael Finley. That needs to end. Marcedes Lewis may have played his last NFL game Sunday night, and Jimmy Graham may have as well. If not, it release Graham and do not re-sign Lewis. Robert Tonyan is a decent player and rookie Jace Sternberger’s first season was stunted by injuries. He could become something more. Add two tight ends in the draft, one early, and one late.
4. Backup quarterback position – The Packers are trusting Rodgers to stick with the team for the forseeable future, but might do well to pick up a veteran quarterback as backup. When the time comes for Rodgers to fade out, that’s when the team should draft a future starter. For now, pick up a trusted vet.
5. Safety depth- The Packers starting safeties are good, and Raven Greene could still be a solid player for them who covers tight ends and running backs, but the Packers need to add more safety depth, possibly two in the draft. One in the mid-rounds, and one in the later rounds.

Ticket King Green Bay | Wild Card Weekend Predictions

Packers Tickets
Ticket King Green Bay brings you our version of the “Wild Card Weekend Preview.”
The 2020 NFL Playoffs are upon us. Let’s dive right in and preview Wild Card Weekend.  We tried to figure out how or why each team will or will not win their game. We hope you enjoy our educated guesses. 
AFC
(3)Patriots vs. (6)Titans
Why the Titans will win- The Titans will win because the Patriots defense can’t stop Derek Henery. Ryan Tannehill continues his impressive play over the second half with a three-touchdown performance. The Patriots have been exposed this season, and for the first time in as long as we can remember will lose as playoff home game.
Why the Patriots will win- The Patriots will win because they have lulled everyone into a false sense of security. “Oh, the Patriots are dead now,” they all say. Well, the Patriots are about to come to life and show us that they are still the “Evil Empire.”
Final score: 34-24 Patriots.
(4)Texans vs. (5)Bills
Why the Bills will win- The Bills are back in the playoffs. This is the more legitimate team in almost two decades. That defense is for real, and the offense led by Josh Allen makes enough plays to pull off a tough playoff road victory.
Why the Texans will win- The Texans have one of the most dynamic young quarterbacks in the game in DeShaun Watson. He will terrorize the Bills defense with his ability to run and pass. Carlos Hyde rushes for 120 yards, and the Texans advance to Baltimore.
Final Score: 31-20 Texans
NFC
(3)Saints vs. (6)Vikings
Why the Vikings will win- It’s going to take a miracle for the boys in purple to pull this one off, and they do just that. Kirk Cousinshas the game of his life, throwing for four touchdown passes. Dalvin Cook returns for injury to add 115 yards and a pair of touchdowns of his own on the ground.
Why the Saints will win- Ladies and gentlemen, the Saints are not just winning. They are pillaging, plundering, and taking no prisoners. They are firing on all cylinders and they roll on into round two, one more win away from an epic rematch with the 49ers.
Final Score: 45-24 Saints, with a late junk touchdown by the Vikings. As I said, it’s going to take a miracle for the Vikings to pull this one off.
(4)Eagles vs. (5) Seahawks
Why the Seahawks will win- Right now Seattle is down for the count. Their top two running backs on the depth chart right now weren’t on the roster all season, and they are down to four healthy receivers. But there’s something that smells of playoff run about this team. I don’t know what it is, all I know is I can smell it.
Why the Eagles will win- The suddenly hot Eagles won the NFC East at the buzzer from the Cowboys, and now enter the playoffs on a little bit of a streak. The playoffs are where Doug Pederson is making his magic work, and he does it yet again. 
Final Score: 31-24 Eagles
