Foley congratulates its long-time client, the Milwaukee Brewers, on the successful passage of a landmark $500 million stadium financing packet that will keep the team in its home ballpark at American Family Field through 2050. Wisconsin Governor Tony Evers signed the bill into law on December 5.
Foley was a key member of the Brewers’ team with respect to this generational project, representing them in the negotiation and drafting of the legislative package. Having served as the team’s counsel with respect to the initial legislation that funded and facilitated the initial development of the stadium (then Miller Park) in the 1990s, Foley is particularly proud to have played a key role in keeping the Brewers and Major League Baseball in Milwaukee for another generation.
The stadium financing package creates a public-private partnership among the Brewers, the State of Wisconsin, the Stadium District, the City of Milwaukee, and Milwaukee County. The financing package paves the way for winterization of the ballpark and the improvements, maintenance, and repairs necessary to keep American Family Field a top-notch facility with a first-class fan experience for years to come.
The Foley team is led by Andrew Wronski, a partner in the firm’s Sports & Entertainment Group, and includes partner David Ryan, partner Joseph Rupkey, and senior counsel Max Meckstroth.
