The Milwaukee Brewers have grown tired of Chicago Cubs fans converging on Miller Park every season. For the second straight year, they’re aiming to do something about it.

On Wednesday, the Brewers doubled down on a presale ticket plan designed to limit the number of Cubs fans attending games at Miller Park in 2019. Presale tickets for all 10 home games against the Cubs will be made available to Wisconsin residents only. That means Cubs fans on the other side of the Illinois-Wisconsin border will have to wait until tickets are made available to the general public.

Last year, the Brewers were a little more subdued when making the presale announcement.

This year, it was quite the opposite.

“If last season’s Game 163 taught us anything, it’s that every single game matters – especially in a rivalry like this,” the Brewers said in a press release. “And, while we don’t dislike all Cubs fans, we just really prefer when Miller Park is packed to the brim with Brewers faithful.”

CHICAGO (CBS)– Brewers fans would like to shed Miller Park ’s unwanted nickname, “Wrigley Field North,”and the team is trying to make that happen Cubs fans are known to pack Miller Park to the brim for games against the Brewers , so the team is making a concerted effort to get more Milwaukee

Apparently, the Brewers will square off with the Cubs for a matter of 10 games this upcoming season at Miller Park and the stadium is making it difficult for Cub They "announced that they will be doing a special presale for tickets to Cubs - Brewers game at the ballpark this season, and it will only be open

“This is your chance to grab your seat early for 10 of the season’s biggest games and keep Cubs fans where they belong — comfortably at home — in the process.”

Winning the National League Central seems to have been a good boost for the Brewers confidence.

Now the question is whether it will be just as good for their attendance. In particular, will it motivate more Brewers fans to snatch up those tickets before Cubs fans can?

Unfortunately for the Brewers, their initial effort to limit the number of Cubs fans at Miller Park proved to be futile. When the Brewers hosted the Cubs last season, there was never a shortage of Cubs fans in attendance.

The reasons why are quite obvious. For the Brewers presale plan to be effective, the games have to sell out before tickets reach the general public. Surprisingly, some of the early season Cubs games last season didn’t sell out at all, meaning Cubs fans had ample opportunity to buy tickets.

Cubs ownership faces backlash after patriarch's racist, Islamophobic emails leaked The family that owns the Chicago Cubs was doing damage control Tuesday after a web site published a series of emails from patriarch Joe Ricketts that revealed racist and anti-Muslim sentiments. Ricketts, the founder and former CEO of TD Ameritrade, helped his family bankroll the more than $800 million purchase of the Cubs, Wrigley Field, and 25% of the cable station Comcast Sportsnet Chicago in 2009 by selling 34 million shares of the online brokerage firm. Ricketts, 77, apologized in a statement for the content of his emails that were published by the website Splinter News.

The Brewers beat the Chicago Cubs in dramatic fashion Friday night -- but the real drama appeared to be in the upper-level stands of Miller Park .

The other issue is probably the one that hurts the Brewers the most. Cubs fans are everywhere in Wisconsin. In some areas, particular those closest to the stateline, Cubs fans almost certainly outnumber Brewers fans. In some instances by wide margins.

There’s nothing the Brewers can do to keep those fans from purchasing tickets. And you can bet many of those tickets will still end up in the hands of Cubs fans outside Wisconsin.

Perhaps the added buzz coming off a division title and an NLCS appearance will net better results for Milwaukee. Perhaps there will even be a few less Illinois license plates in the parking lot at Miller Park this season. But no matter the circumstances, Cubs fans will never be denied.
