Brewers fans battle "Arctic Tailgate" to get tickets

Posted: Updated:
MILWAUKEE (WKOW) -- After a 24 hour cold weather delay, die hard brewers fans lined up to be among the first to get tickets for the upcoming season.

They started gathering outside Miller Park around noon, for the team's annual "Arctic Tailgate" event.

The tickets will not go on sale until 9:00 a.m. Saturday morning. A group of Brewers fans from Madison say camping out in the freezing cold is worth it.

"We're all together as one group. One big happy family. We're one big happy arctic tailgate family. Every year, same people and we meet here. These are our once a year friends that we meet," said fan Zach Zwadzich.

The Brewers home opener is just a little more than four weeks away. First pitch against the Atlanta Braves is set for 1:10 p.m. on Monday, March 31.
