New venue for Wisconsin pre-game fun


Wisconsin fans have a new option before the game to meet up.

The athletics department is hosting Badgerville beginning on Sept. 1, before the season-opener against UNLV and for four other games.

Badgerville will start two and half hours before the gates open and be located on the grass field north of Camp Randall Stadium. The event will feature live music, autograph sessions with current student-athletes and famous alumni and kid-friendly activities.

A videoboard also will allow fans to track other games of interest around the country.

Wisconsin will host Badgerville before the first five home games. The other two games will feature Badger Blast before Purdue on Nov. 5 and the Chili Kickoff before Penn State on Nov. 26. Those events will be held in the UW Field House.
