The Milwaukee Wave and the Wisconsin Center District signed a two-year contract extension to ensure the Wave will continue to play its home games at the U.S. Cellular Arena in downtown Milwaukee.

“It’s very exciting for me, personally, to be coming back to the U.S. Cellular Arena. We have great memories here, winning championships. The home field advantage is certainly great and the arena is considered the best playing field in the Major Indoor Soccer League,” said Keith Tozer, head coach and senior vice president of soccer operations for the Wave.

The U.S. Cellular Arena has been home to the Wave for the past 10 years.

“We have made a commitment to the community and the Wave will remain a part of the Wisconsin sports scene. We are also pleased to get the deal done at an early date which will allows us to get a head start on the season,” said Sue Black, owner and chief executive officer of the Wave.

Steve Palec of CRESA represented Black in the negotiations.

“This was an honor because it is about the vibrancy of our city, the continued success of downtown and the future of a sport that continues to explode. And I would add that it was great to assist in a small way the start of what will be a sports story in and of itself. We will all witness the unique promotion that a dedicated owner like Sue Black is about to bring to another gem in our community,” Palec said.
