The Brewers are going to try their best to make sure there are as few Cubs fans as possible at Miller Park when the Cubs visit Milwaukee next season.
On Friday, the Brewers will begin a presale that runs through next Thursday for tickets to the 10 games when the Cubs come to town. There is a catch, though: The presale is only available to residents of Wisconsin.
It’s not that we dislike Cubs fans, per se. We just really prefer Brewers fans.

Later in the day, the Cubs had a little fun at the Brewers’ expense regarding their ticket offer. The Cubs used its Twitter account to say everyone can buy tickets to their home games, “even if you live in Wisconsin.”
Reminder that EVERYBODY can buy #Cubs tickets starting Feb. 23 …

The presale may help in limiting the number of Cubs fans in attendance when they are in Milwaukee. Fielding a team that makes Brewers fans attend games in droves will also help accomplish that goal.
The Brewers have added Christian Yelich and Lorenzo Cain so far this offseason. They reportedly can still afford to add another major free agent, which could be Yu Darvish. If they open up the season playing strong, there should be plenty of enthusiasm surrounding the team and not much room for opposing fans.
