Wisconsin gives update on Camp Randall Stadium renovation
This shouldn’t come as a major surprise.
Wisconsin’s Camp Randall Stadium is an awesome venue to watch a football game at. Tailgating, food, the play on the field.
It’s all great.
Of course, everything can get better and that’s what Wisconsin is planning to do with Camp Randall. However, renovations on the stadium are being put to a halt.
"Given our construction timeline and the timing around when decisions had to be made, we felt it was best to be prudent and delay the project for a bit"

The project was supposed to begin at the end of the 2020 season so that the 2021 season would reap the rewards. However, as the news release stated, “It is now more likely that work will begin sometime in 2021 with a target opening for the 2022 campaign.”
Here’s Wisconsin athletic director Barry Alvarez in a statement:
“We are obviously operating in a time of great uncertainty. Given our construction timeline and the timing around when decisions had to be made, we felt it was best to be prudent and delay the project for a bit. I have been thrilled with how strong sales have been thus far and I want to thank those who have already committed to purchasing seating in the new south end zone, leading to over 75 percent of loge box inventory being committed to date. Once finished, this will be a transformative project for Camp Randall.”
