The Wisconsin football team returns to practice this week in preparation for the 2022 season, which means Camp Randall Stadium is about to come back to life.

On Sunday, August 21st, less than two weeks before UW’s season opener against Illinois State, fans are invited to Camp Randall Stadium to watch the team practice, experience the new-look Camp Randall and get their first glance at this season’s Badger squad.

The day starts at 1:30 pm with “Badgerville”, featuring the Kohl’s Kids Combine located outside the northeast corner of Camp Randall Stadium, adjacent to Parking Lot 17. Kids of all ages and abilities can take part in a fun mini combine to test their football skills. In addition, Badgerville will feature food and drink for purchase, tailgate games, photo opportunities, entertainment and more.

Camp Randall Stadium will open at 3:30 pm for fans wanting to watch practice. “The Voice of the Badgers” Matt Lepay and color commentator Mike Lucas will be on hand to offer analysis and speak with special guests, including head coach Paul Chryst, Director of Athletics Chris McIntosh and members of this year’s team.

Admission to both Badgerville and practice are free. Fans who plan to be in attendance are asked to RSVP using this link to be eligible to win prizes and receive exclusive ticket offers. Bucky’s Locker Room will also be open for fans looking to gear up for the 2022 season.

In conjunction with the free fan events, Wisconsin Athletics is hosting a children’s book drive benefiting local non-profit groups. Fans are encouraged to bring children’s books to donate.

Tickets are still available for the Badgers’ season-opener against Illinois State on Sept. 3 at Camp Randall.
