In addition to the ticket package, the Admirals will celebrate “Brewers’ Night” at the team’s game on January 12th against the Rockford IceHogs. For the contest the Ads will wear special jerseys reminiscent of the Brewers retro uniforms from the 1980s.

The Admirals and Brewers are in the third season of a corporate partnership that began in the 2005-06 campaign. The Admirals will continue to sport the “Ball and Glove” logo on its jerseys as the Brewers are the exclusive jersey sponsor of the team. Announcements during the game, dasherboard signage at the Bradley Center, radio spots during broadcasts and an in-game “Brewers Home Run Derby” promotion where fans can win Brewers prize packs are also a part of the partnership.
“The Admirals and Brewers are two clubs with close ties in Milwaukee,” said Rick Schlesinger, Brewers Executive Vice President-Business Operations. “We enjoy the relationship we have had with the Admirals and are excited to keep the relationship for the next two years and hopefully beyond.”
The ties between the two clubs include Milwaukee Brewers Chairman Mark Attanasio, Brewers Assistant General Manager Gord Ash and starting pitcher Ben Sheets being members of the Admirals ownership group. Admirals owner Harris Turer is a member of the Brewers Advisory Board while Admirals President Jon Greenberg is the former Media Relations Director of the Milwaukee Brewers.
“We are very pleased to extend this relationship with the Brewers through the 2008-09 season,” said Greenberg. “The Admirals and the Brewers have become strong partners over the past few years and we believe that there are many more great opportunities ahead for both franchises.”
