Distinguished by its impressive double-deck structure, Camp Randall Stadium has been the Badgers’ facility since its opening game on Nov. 3, 1917. It has been host to UW football games, outdoor concerts, Drum Corps International, Green Bay Packer exhibition games, and other large public events. With a capacity of 80,321, it is the 17th-largest and fourth-oldest collegiate stadium in the nation. The land was originally used for training Wisconsin troops during the Civil War and is named after Wisconsin’s first wartime governor, Alexander W. Randall, Camp Randall will celebrates its 100th birthday in 2017.
The flag football event is being organized and managed by Gameday Entertainment, an event management company with experience in sports and entertainment events. The same company planned and promoted a similar event last summer at Candlestick Park in San Francisco with Joe Montana and 49er Legends versus Dan Marino and NFL All Stars. Legends of Candlestick gave the city of San Francisco an opportunity to celebrate San Francisco’s historic Candlestick Park before its demolition this year.
