MILWAUKEE (WLUK) -- It will feel like 1968 all over again when the Milwaukee Bucks take the floor at UW-Milwaukee Panther Arena in October.

On Tuesday, the team unveiled throwback uniforms it will wear during the Oct. 26 "Return to the MECCA" game against the Boston Celtics. The MECCA, where the Bucks played from 1968-88, is the former name of UWM Panther Arena.

The uniforms are a modern version of the jerseys and shorts the Bucks wore during their first season in 1968-69. The team also plans to wear the throwbacks during other games this season.

Tickets to the game area available by purchasing a Bucks season ticket package.
