For 2023, the Athletic Department will continue to review and allocate season parking requests based on lot availability, annual giving level and priority points within each giving level via online selection software, called Badger Select. The Badger Select process allows for the Athletic Department to annually evaluate parking inventory while accommodating donors with a unique appointment time to choose parking based on their individual needs.
Patrons wishing to participate in Badger Select and order season parking must be a current football season ticket holder and active donor to Wisconsin Athletics. The minimum contribution to be eligible for football parking is $250. To be considered an active donor, patrons must submit their annual contribution by March 15. Patrons will receive selection information via email after the order deadlines and approximately one week prior to the start of the process.
Football season parking permits have traditionally sold out. The same type of demand for season parking permits is expected for subsequent seasons. All parking is subject to availability.
Qualifying donations for the opportunity to order football season parking permits are as follows:
|Zone||Parking Qualifying Gift Amount: Lots|
|Zone A||$10,000+ : Lots 16, 17, 17 Roof, Credit Union, Regent Apartments, Church A & B|
|Zone B||$2,500+ : Lots 20, 33, 40B, 40S, 41, 44, 45, 51, 54, 56, 80, 92, Church C*, Randall School Courtyard, Randall School Lower Lot, Friends Meetinghouse|
|Zone C||$1,000+ : Lots 27, 39, 87, and 93|
|Zone D||$250+ : Lots 7, 29, 34*, 36, and 67|
*Alcohol Free Lot
Donors ordering multiple football parking permits must qualify for each permit based on their annual giving level [Example: Ordering two zone A football parking permits would require a minimum qualifying donation of $20,000 ($10,000 per permit)]. Additionally, season ticket holders/active donors will be limited to purchase up to three (3) season parking permits, per account, based on annual giving level qualification, donor requests, and lot availability. Eligibility does not guarantee availability.
Parking lot availability fluctuates on an annual basis. It is not possible to forecast the annual contribution level and priority points necessary to receive a season permit in a specific parking lot and/or zone. For reference to donors interested in securing football season parking permits, below is a summary of the minimum annual giving levels and priority points for each respective parking lot from donors that purchased a 2022 football season parking permit. 2023 results will be based on lot availability, donor requests, annual giving levels, and Badger Select priority points.
