BMO Harris Bank extends Bucks deal

BMO Harris Bank has been named as a founding partner of the Milwaukee Bucks’ new arena as part of an extended sponsorship deal with the NBA basketball team.

BMO Harris Bank will continue to serve as the official bank of the Bucks, with the company to also hold naming rights to a suite at the new arena, which is due to open next year.

The BMO Club will be an all-inclusive suite and will launch on the event level of the venue. The Bucks said the suite would be the most exclusive space in the arena and provide a direct connection to the player tunnel.

The bank holds naming rights to the Bucks’ current home arena, the BMO Harris Bradley Center.

As part of the new agreement, the length of which was undisclosed, the Bucks and BMO Harris Bank will debut a new branded debit card. The card will grant fans discounts on Bucks merchandise at the BMO Harris Bradley Center, as well as concession discounts, early entry to games and special events such as happy hours. Additional cardholder benefits will be available at the as-yet-unnamed new arena.
