Brewers freeze ticket prices for 2011
The Milwaukee Brewers today announced they will not change their ticket prices for 2011.
The price freeze will be in effect for all tickets, including both season and single game tickets.
“Every member of the Milwaukee Brewers organization, from ownership and staff to the players, is extraordinarily grateful for the tremendous fan support we receive,” said Rick Schlesinger, Brewers executive vice president of business operations. “In return, we want to continue providing one of the most affordable experiences in Major League Baseball. One of Mark Attanasio’s original pledges when he purchased the team was to deliver the best fan experience possible, and this is another step toward delivering on that promise.”
In 2010, the Brewers were ranked by Team Marketing Report’s annual survey as the eighth most-affordable fan experience in all of Major League Baseball. With today’s announcement, it is likely that the Brewers will improve upon that ranking for 2011. For 2010 and 2011, the Brewers average ticket price is $22.10.

The Milwaukee Public market will celebrate its five year anniversary during a celebration this weekend Saturday, Oct. 16 and Sunday, Oct. 17 at the main market building, 400 N. Water St.

“The 5 Year Anniversary Celebration is for people of all ages,” said Market spokesperson, Paul Schwartz. “The Market’s success over the last few years is attributed to the loyal customers who walk through our doors each and every day. Providing a weekend of live entertainment for all ages, along with quality food products at phenomenally reasonable prices, is the least we can do to show our patrons how much we appreciate them after 5 years.”
Award winning chef and cook book author, Clay Erickson will prepare a batch of his Cajun Seafood Soup on Saturday at 12 p.m. and will also be available for book signing. Festivities for families and kids include pumpkin bowling, live music and art exhibitions from local artist Anita Burgermeister, Bela Roongta Eitel and Melanie Ariens.
According to Schwartz, the market has seen an increase in overall sales and customer traffic, due to many of the markets vendors being nominated for the 2010 Best of food categories.
“We are on track to have a record breaking year for overall sales,” said Schwartz. “We have the perfect mix of vendors right now, and we feel that mix has solidified our status as one of the most unique downtown food destinations.”
