The BMO Harris Bradley Center (then known as the Bradley Center), built in 1988 and located in the midst of downtown Milwaukee, WI, has a relatively strong history of college hockey despite not being the home for a college team, or even an NHL franchise. It seats 17,800 for hockey.
The arena has hosted three Frozen Fours, in 1993, 1997, 2006. Additionally, the Bradley Center has hosted the 1995 edition of the College Hockey Showcase, the WCHA Final Five in 1994, 1996, and 1998, as well as the first 14 years of the Badger Hockey Showdown.
On May 21, 2012, the Bucks, owner Herb Kohl and representatives from BMO Harris Bank announced that the bank had officially purchased the naming rights for the Bradley Center, and it would be renamed the "BMO Harris Bradley Center".
The arena closed in 2016 and is scheduled to be demolished later in the year. The site will be used for future commercial development. The as yet unnamed new home of the Milwaukee Bucks of the National Basketball Association is going to be located just to the north of the present arena site and is scheduled to open in time for the 2018-19 season.
