Big Red Turns Blue

In honor of COVID-19 workers, UW athletic facilities glow with an uncharacteristic hue.

What’s that strange color emanating from Camp Randall Stadium? UW–Madison is known for Badger red, but on April 9 it joined the rest of the country in the #LightItBlue campaign to honor workers fighting COVID-19. The goal was to light up iconic structures, so the Field House and the Kohl Center got the same glowing treatment. We never thought we’d say this in the vicinity of UW athletic facilities, but … Go Big Blue!
