Since hosting the All-Star Game has grown more attractive and advantageous for cities, the Bucks should expect to face competition in their efforts to get the game.
On Saturday, NBA commissioner Adam Silver predicted that the All-Star Weekend in Salt Lake City will have an “economic effect” of around $280 million. Silver also disclosed that hotels had established a new record revenue because of the All-Star break high revenue because of All-Star break. “We’re doing more fan activities than ever before,” Silver added, “and we’re taking up 33,000 hotel nights in the area.”
Both in 2022 and 2023, the Bucks attempted to host the All-Star Game but were ultimately unsuccessful, losing out to the Cleveland Cavaliers and the Utah Jazz, respectively.
There was just one NBA All-Star Game ever played in Milwaukee, and it was hosted by the Bucks back in 1977. In 2018, the Bucks moved into their new home, Fiserv Forum.
