Former Wisconsin athletic director and football coach Barry Alvarez will have the field at UW’s Camp Randall Stadium named after him beginning with the 2022 season.

According to UW-Madison Chancellor Rebecca Blank, more than 60 donors contributed $13 million-plus in honor of Alvarez. In recognition, the field will be known as Barry Alvarez Field at Camp Randall Stadium.

"Barry Alvarez has had an immeasurable impact on the UW-Madison campus and beyond in the state and in college sports," Blank said during a ceremony Friday at Camp Randall. "This type of career deserves recognition at the highest level.”

Alvarez was Wisconsin’s athletic director 18 years before retiring in 2021. During his tenure as football coach from 1990 to 2005, Alvarez went 119-74-4 with three Big Ten titles and three Rose Bowl wins.
