MADISON, Wis. -- Wisconsin Director of Athletics Barry Alvarez issued a statement Wednesday regarding concessions at UW home sporting events.
"The experience that Badger fans have in our venues is very important to our student-athletes, coaches and staff, as well as the department as a whole. As we place an increasing emphasis on ensuring an engaged and enjoyable fan experience, particularly at Camp Randall Stadium and the Kohl Center, we are looking at various ways to make that happen. One area we are examining is concessions, in terms of menu options, appearance, pricing and overall customer service. We are currently soliciting proposals for the rights to our concessions operations.
"Over the years, we have been fortunate to have various local service groups run our concessions stands on gameday. Our goal is to work with the rights-holder to continue that tradition going forward.
"We are looking forward, in the months and years ahead, to providing the best possible experience for our fans when they're on campus for our events."
