Your Badger Select rank will determine your priority in the Badger Select process. The higher your Badger Select rank, the earlier your selection date and time will be in Badger Select which may increase the pool of quality seats to choose from.
Badger Select Rank is based on 2023 Annual Giving Level and Badger Select priority points. Badger Select priority points include: points as of December 31st, 2017 plus 2018–2023 priority points accrued from non–deductible donations. Non–deductible donations include those associated with priority seating and Badger Select seating contributions.
For Badger Select Rank, 100% deductible donations made in 2018–2023 will NOT be allocated towards Badger Select priority points. 100% deductible gifts include those to sport specific funds, endowed scholarships, or capital projects. (Please note Badger Select rank is different from Donor Rank.)

As you consider taking part in Badger Select, for either additional season tickets or a seat change, please note the recommended minimum annual contributions for the opportunity to order seats in certain sections:
For the past several seasons, most men's hockey season ticket holders have been able to find desirable seats. However, some highly sought–after areas of the Kohl Center for men's hockey historically experience little to no attrition from one season to the next. One such example would be seats in row A of the 100 level, also known as "on the glass". Please keep this in mind when participating in Badger Select for men's hockey.
The Wisconsin Athletic Department no longer reviews write-in requests and making allocations based on donor rank and requests. Badger Select is now your portal to make these decisions. Requests do not carry over year to year.
At the conclusion of the Badger Select process, payment in full for new or additional season tickets is required to complete your order. Applicable contributions and season parking fees (if selected) will also be due at this time.
Accessible seating and premium seating (Kohl Center suites and Nicholas Club seats) are not a part of Badger Select. For more information regarding accessible seating, please contact the Athletic Ticket Office at (608) 262-1440. For more information regarding Kohl Center premium seating, please contact the Athletic Development Office at (608) 262-1000.
