They couldn’t fill the stadium with their own fans last year in that last 4 game series of the year when they were still in it. Sports talk guys in Wisconsin were begging fans to show up and wanted season tickets revoked from any season ticket holder who sold or gave their tickets to Cubs fans. I doubt many, if any, of their fans will be rushing to buy tickets in this deal. Especially at the premium up charge the Brewers put on Cubs games, you can get to 3+ games against pretty much any non-Cubs team in Milwaukee for the jacked up prices they charge for one game when the Cubs are in town. I’ve gone to games there against non-Cubs teams and sat in the lower level for $20, those are $100-200+ seats when the Cubs are in Milwaukee.
