Camp Randall Stadium

A desire for more premium-level seating at Camp Randall Stadium fueled a major item in a look into what could be the future of University of Wisconsin athletics facilities.

The athletic department’s facilities master plan, presented to the Athletic Board at its meeting on January 20, offers ideas for major renovations at five venues over the next decade and beyond, including an addition to the Kohl Center focused on athlete support.

Proposed renderings for the University of Wisconsin’s reconstruction of the south end zone seating at Camp Randall have been released. The redesign concepts would include club seats and an outdoor terrace that connected to a club lounge inside the Field House.

The UW Field House, Nielsen Tennis Stadium and McClimon Track/Soccer Complex also were identified as places where significant upgrades could boost the experience for both athletes and fans. The ideas for renovations at Camp Randall, however, were among the most extensive studied in the 169-page report.

Jason King, the senior associate athletic director for capital projects, emphasized that the presentation merely offered concepts, not definitive plans or timelines.

More concrete details of the Wisconsin master plan are expected to be unveiled at Coliseum Summit AMERICAS, April 19-20, 2017 at Las Vegas, Nevada.
