The Milwaukee Bucks have released the renderings of the basketball floor for the “Return to MECCA” game scheduled for Thursday, Oct. 26. 

The famed floor features the pair of letters “M” stained into the floor on each half court, along with other original colors and markings. 

“On this special night at the MECCA, it’s only fitting for fans to have another chance to see the Bucks play on this iconic court,” said Dustin Godsey, Milwaukee Bucks Chief Marketing Officer in a news release. “Robert Indiana’s famously designed floor is a major part of the legacy of the Bucks and the city of Milwaukee and we’re proud to celebrate the team’s heritage in our 50th Anniversary season.”

The Bucks will take on the Boston Celtics at 7 p.m. at Panther Arena, which was formerly known as the MECCA. 

The Bucks played at the MECCA from 1977 to 1987.
