American Family Field is a retractable roof stadium located in Milwaukee, Wisconsin. It has a capacity of 41,900 spectators and is primarily used for baseball. It has been the home of Major League Baseball’s (MLB) Milwaukee Brewers since opening in 2001. The stadium was built as a replacement for Milwaukee County Stadium which was the Brewers home from 1970 until their move to American Family Field.

American Family Field was previously called Miller Park as part of a $40 million naming rights deal with Miller Brewing Company, which expired at the end of 2020. American Family Field features a fan-shaped convertible roof, which can open and close in less than 10 minutes and boasts large panes of glass allowing natural grass to grow.

Apart from baseball, other sporting events held at American Family Field include bowling and soccer. The stadium has also hosted various concerts and even film screenings in the recent past. American Family Field offers a variety of facilities year-round.

Milwaukee Brewers Tickets

The Milwaukee Brewers sell their tickets via and the MLB Ballpark App.

SeatGeek has replaced StubHub as the official ticket resale partner for MLB.

Baseball fans can still use other resale ticket marketplaces to buy and sell tickets to MLB games. MLB will verify those tickets so buyers know they’re getting a legitimate ticket.

Here are links to the main ticket resale sites. Click on the link, which will open up a new window, and you can compare the prices on the different ticket resell sites, bearing in mind that the prices shown are before the selling platforms fees are added, so take time to have a read of my tips to Buying Tickets in North America.

I recommend downloading the Ballpark App to your phone as it contains a lot of Gameday information for the Ballpark you are visiting and a place to check in and record all the baseball games you have been to.
