With the Cubs opening in Milwaukee this year, the Brewers no doubt expect a deluge of Cubs fans at Wrigley North, even at a time when it seems like many Cubs fans are disliking their team almost as much as Brewers fans.
So, predictably, they’re once against trying to stem the tide by limiting initial sales to Wisconsin residents only:
Defend. Your. Turf.
The Wisconsin resident only presale starts tomorrow at 9 a.m. CT.
Fans may purchase up to 4 tickets for opening day and up to 8 tickets to any of the other regular-season home games against the Cubs this season.

It really isn’t going to matter. The games won’t sell out completely in the pre-sale, and even if they did, the secondary market would get flooded with tickets eventually, and they would, in turn, be gobbled up by Cubs fans.
So, basically, it’s just a bit of PR for the Brewers to do this. Maybe nice for their fans, but it also kinda looks lame. Stay away, Cubs fans! We totally don’t want your money and cannot stomach your fiery presence!
The Brewers are trying to limit Cubs game tickets to Wisconsin fans again?
