Madison, Wis. - The University of Wisconsin Athletic Department celebrated its One Millionth Fan symbolically on January 19 at the UW men's basketball game vs. Indiana.
At the UW men's hockey game on December 30, the Badger Athletic program counted its ONE MILLIONTH fan to come through its gates. In attendance at that game and and randomly chosen to represent the 1,000,000th fan was Mitch Lange from Mount Horeb, Wis.
Lange and his guests enjoyed a pre-game dinner in the Kellner club prior to the men's basketball game. During the game, Director of Athletics Barry Alvarez presented Lange with a certificate recognizing this honor.
In addition, Lange will enjoy dinner at the Great Dane - Hilldale during an upcoming Wisconsin Hockey Hour featuring Mike Eaves. Lange will also receive a pair of season tickets to all Wisconsin Athletic events for 2011-12.
The UW Athletic Department is humbled and appreciative to celebrate this tremendous milestone. The department would like to thank all Badger fans for their passionate and loyal support of Wisconsin Athletics.
