They started putting in the new seats. I'm reading and hearing that this arena feels like the MECCA and not the Bradley Center. Looking at the picture, the upper deck is close to the court as well. A total of 16,091 seats will be installed, 9,625 in the lower level, 636 in the suite level and 5,830 in the upper bowl, the Bucks said. That configuration is just about the opposite of the Bradley Center which has the majority of its seats in the upper level.
So - if 16,091 seats are being installed, and the new arena seats 17,500, where do the other 1,409 people sit?
