On September 18, 2013 the NBA authorities decreed that the facilities did not meet the standards of the competition. The NBA required the Milwaukee Bucks to relocate elsewhere. The Bradley Center has been replaced by the Wisconsin Entertainment and Sports Center, known for sponsorship purposes as Fiserv Forum.
The internal demolition of the Bradley Center began at the end of 2018. The pavilion had a capacity of 20,000 people for concerts, 18,717 for NBA games, 19,000 for college games and 17,800 for ice hockey matches. It is expected that the building will be completely demolished for this summer.
