Wisconsin Director of Athletics Barry Alvarez also on Wednesday unveiled the Badger Legacy Campaign, a fundraising campaign designed to help Wisconsin Athletics offset the lost revenues incurred due to the COVID-19 pandemic. Depending on what the football season looks like, UW Athletics is facing revenue losses of between $60-100 million as the UW is preparing for the reality that it will not be appropriate for thousands of fans to gather in Camp Randall on Saturdays this fall.
“We are greatly appreciative that 85 percent of our season ticket holders made the choice to order season tickets again this year and it disappoints me that we will not be able to provide those season tickets,” Alvarez said in a letter to season ticket holders.
Fans who purchased season tickets for football were offered the opportunity to participate in the Badger Legacy Campaign by reinvesting their season ticket and per seat contributions into a fully tax-deductible donation for 2020, according to UW athletics. Season ticket holders were also given the option of moving their 2020 season ticket payment and/or donation to apply to the 2021 season or requesting a full refund.
