Brewers among top franchises in satisfaction rankings.




MILWAUKEE, WI -The results of ESPN The Magazine's[/i] annual "Ultimate Standings: Fan Satisfaction Rankings" have been released and the Milwaukee Brewers placed 13th out of 122 major league franchises in the survey. The entire survey and rankings appear in the just-released edition of the Magazine.

More than 60,000 fans participated in the survey, which rated each franchise in eight categories. The Brewers placed among the top 10 franchises in the categories of Affordability (#5), Stadium Experience (#8) and Bang for the Buck (#9).

Last season, the Brewers placed 16th in the Magazine's survey.

"Fan satisfaction is our ultimate and only report card, and we take great pride in receiving high marks from not only our fans but people across the country," said Rick Schlesinger, Brewers Executive Vice President - Business Operations. "We understand that we need to continue a focus on delivering a consistently competitive team and an improved Miller Park entertainment experience, and we will make a concerted effort to apply the valuable feedback that we receive from the fans."

Following is an excerpt from the magazine's recap on the Brewers:

"What explains the new celebrity, measured in part by the team's 20% jump in attendance and franchise-high 31 sellouts in 2007? How about the first winning season since 1992 and a lineup card of exciting young players, such as Prince Fielder, Ryan Braun and J.J. Hardy. Better yet, an expected '08 payroll of about $83 million, a nearly threefold rise since '04, demonstrates commitment from ownership. Bargains at Miller also contribute to the team's Affordability rating. Game costs ($30.86) are 29% below league average, fueled by tickets starting at just 8 bucks ($1 for the obstructed-view "Uecker Seats") and hot dogs for less than $3. And to help spread Brewers love, the team stages Brewers Block Parties in the community, complete with free dogs and games, and players attend to sign autographs."[/i]

The Brewers and Miller Park have placed among the top teams in several recent media and fan rankings. In the two most recent "Fan Value Index" rankings by SI.com, the Brewers placed first among Major League teams in a media poll (2005) and fourth in a vote by fans (2006).
