Madison, Wis. - The University of Wisconsin Athletic Department invites fans and children of all ages to one of the upcoming Badger Days events in Green Bay, Kohler or Milwaukee.
Each Badger Day event allows Wisconsin fans to enjoy a casual tailgate setting and interact one-on-one with Director of Athletics Barry Alvarez, Bret Bielema, Bo Ryan, Lisa Stone, Mike Eaves, Mark Johnson and other Badger coaches. The “Voice of the Badgers,” Matt Lepay, 1999 Heisman Trophy winner Ron Dayne, and the biggest Badger of them all, Bucky Badger will also be in attendance.
The schedule for the three-city tour was announced today. The first stop on the tour will be at historic Lambeau Field on Tuesday, June 1 from 5-7 p.m. The atrium at Lambeau Field will be the setting as Green Bay Packers have once again generously partnered with UW Athletics to hold this year’s event. Time Warner Cable is the presenting sponsor for Badger Days.
The following night the Badger Days tour visits the Kohler/Sheboygan area for the first time. Wednesday, June 2 the event will be held at the The Shops at Woodlake. The event will run from 5-7 p.m.
The Badger Days tour concludes Tuesday, June 8 in Milwaukee. The UW Athletic Department has partnered with the Milwaukee Brewers to hold the event at Helfaer Field at Miller Park from 4:30-6:30 p.m. Following the event, Barry Alvarez and the Badger coaches will take part in pre-game first pitch ceremonies before the Brewers face NL Central rival, the Chicago Cubs.
