MADISON — UW-Madison athletic facilities may get a face-lift in the next few years if Gov. Tony Evers' plan falls into place.

Camp Randall Stadium and the Kohl Center could get $126 million from Evers' proposal, according to our partners at the Milwaukee Business Journal.

The Camp Randall project would total $77.6 million and replace half the bleachers in the south end zone, according to the capital budget Evers released March 7.

Premium seating would replace the old bleachers, including an 11,000-square-foot field-level club space, 7,500 square feet of loge-level premium club space and 7,000 square feet for an exterior terrace-club area.

The synthetic turf field would also be replaced.

As for the Kohl Center, remodeling and expanding locker rooms for the men’s and women’s basketball teams and adding equipment for the sports medicine facility at the arena would be the additions.

The new and renovated spaces will serve the men’s and women’s basketball teams, golf, hockey, swimming and tennis as well as the cheerleading and dance teams.
