Brewers Arctic Tailgate: First fans get in line for individual game tickets in 2016
MILWAUKEE — Spring Training is officially underway, and another sign that baseball is coming is the arrival of the first fans in line at the Miller Park Box Office on Thursday afternoon, February 25th in advance of Saturday’s Arctic Tailgate.
This year’s Arctic Tailgate, which marks the start of sales for individual game tickets, comes to Miller Park this Saturday, February 27th. Fans were permitted on site Thursday at noon, and will spend the next two nights waiting for their chance to purchase tickets to their preferred games for 2016.
Before the Box Office windows open at 9:00 a.m. on Saturday, The Klement’s Famous Racing Sausages, Bernie Brewer and Brewers alumni players will be on hand to greet fans all morning.
The first 2,000 fans in line will receive a hot dog and soda, compliments of Klement’s, Pepsi and Sportservice, as well as an Arctic Tailgate T-Shirt. Grebe’s Bakery will also supply donuts for hungry fans. FOX Sports Wisconsin and 620 WTMJ support the event as well.
NOTE: Online and phone sales for individual games also begin at 9:00 a.m. on February 27th.
Please note the following safety regulations for the Arctic Tailgate:
No hand-made or hand-built shelters shall be permitted. No shelters made of cardboard or wood will be permitted. Shelters with a footprint greater than 100 square feet are not permitted unless otherwise approved by the Brewers. Miller Park power sources are not available for public use and gas generators are not permitted on the property. Only State-Approved gas/propane heating/grilling units with fuel-valve turn-offs and self-contained charcoal/wood units are permitted; provided, however, that they must be a minimum distance of 25 feet from the building or shelters. Activity and items permitted on the premises are subject to the approval of the Brewers. The Brewers reserve the right to remove any shelter, items, or individuals from the property.
Only a very limited number of tickets for Opening Day will be available at this event (note: the Miller Park Box Office will be the only place where fans will be able to purchase individual Opening Day tickets on February 27th; no phone or online orders will be accepted).
Each fan will be limited to a maximum of four tickets for Opening Day, based on availability.

Demand-based pricing, which provides the best ticket value for fans, will return for all Brewers games this season. The pricing will be implemented in almost all of the Miller Park seating categories (excluding All-Inclusive Areas, Suites, and the Uecker Seats).
Beginning with the first day of individual game sales, pricing for all 81 games is subject to change. Fans should be reminded that they will usually receive the lowest price when they purchase their seats early.
