Miller Park has a problem. When the Brewers play the Cubs, there is often more Chicago blue in the stands than Milwaukee blue.
The Brewers are doing all they can to avoid that this season.
Milwaukee will open up preseason sales on Thursday for all 10 home games against the Cubs, but will do so with a caveat: only Wisconsin residents can buy tickets.
The Brewers had a little fun with the promotion on Twitter.
“Any claims that this presale is an attempt to prevent Cubs fans from getting Brewers tickets are… well, pretty accurate, actually,” the account wrote.

To get a ticket with this promotion, buyers must have a primary address located in the state of Wisconsin. This is the second year they have done this.
“If last season’s Game 163 taught us anything, it’s that every single game matters — especially in a rivalry like this,” a press release read. “And, while we don’t dislike all Cubs fans, we just really prefer when Miller Park is packed to the brim with Brewers faithful. So, we’re calling upon all Wisconsinites to fill up Miller Park every time the Cubs come to town this season.”
