Despite multiple rumors saying there was a possibility teams could host fans in arenas next season, the Milwaukee Bucks have joined the Los Angeles Lakers announcing they won't be allowing fans into their arena next season.
''Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, Milwaukee Bucks games at Fiserv Forum for the 2020-21 season will be held without fans until further notice in accordance with state and local guidelines,'' the team said in an official statement. ''The health and safety of fans, players, coaches, and team and arena staff are the organization’s top priorities.''

The Bucks will continue to work with state and local health officials, as well as the NBA, to evaluate a potential return for fans in some capacity later this season.
Just a couple of weeks away from starting the season, Milwaukee has one of the best fanbases in the entire league and will for sure impact the environment inside the arena on gamedays. Although the season is scheduled to being December 22nd, the Bucks’ schedule is yet to be announced.
