Presale begins on Saturday, Nov. 25
Get ready to go on tour. Because following the Badger game at Minnesota, you can take advantage of this exclusive presale to travel with the Official Badger Bowl Tour.
The presale is a great opportunity to reserve your place early to travel to any of Wisconsin’s projected bowls. It’s also the only way to guarantee that you’ll be able to enjoy the perks, access, convenience, and camaraderie offered on the Official Badger Bowl Tour. Travel package options include airfare and game tickets along with hotel, BADGER HUDDLE® tailgate, and more.
Space is limited. Watch for details and bowl options to be announced immediately after the game against Minnesota on Saturday, Nov. 25. Then save your spot as soon as you get the chance (with fully refundable deposits).
Be a part of the action from the very beginning!
HOW IT WORKS:
After the Minnesota game, you’ll be able to place a deposit on one or more bowl-game package options. On December 3, after the Badgers are formally selected to play in a bowl, your deposit for that bowl’s package(s) will be applied to the balance due and immediately charged to the credit card you provided. At that point, your tour participation will be confirmed, and all monies paid will become nonrefundable. Should the Badgers not advance to the bowl(s) you have selected, your deposit will be fully refunded and not applied to any other package.
Important: Official Badger Bowl Tour presale is dependent on outcomes of future games.
Individual BADGER HUDDLE tailgate tickets will be available for purchase on December 5 (sale date subject to change). Each ticket includes entry into the official Wisconsin tailgate: the only pregame party that boasts appearances by Bucky Badger, the UW Spirit Squad, and other special guests, plus food, drinks, entertainment, and more.
The Wisconsin Alumni Association® is the official travel provider for the University of Wisconsin–Madison and the UW Department of Athletics.

Frequently Asked Questions: Official Badger Bowl Tour
Must I be a UW-Madison graduate or Wisconsin Alumni Association® (WAA) member to travel on WAA’s Official Badger Bowl Tour?
No! Everyone is welcome to travel with WAA: alumni, students, WAA members, families, fans, and friends.
What is the pre-sale and how do I make a reservation?
By placing a deposit on one or more bowl game destinations, the pre-sale is an opportunity to guarantee your reservation ahead of the official announcement.
Pre-sale reservations can be made beginning Saturday, Nov. 25 by calling PrimeSport at 866-373-5073, or online at PrimeSport.com/Wisconsin. The pre-sale is optional but allows you to reserve your spot early. We anticipate having packages available after the official announcement on Sunday, Dec. 3, but capacity after the pre-sale is subject to availability.
Can I change or cancel my pre-sale reservation?
Changes and/or cancellations to any reservation will be permitted until the official bowl announcement is made on Sunday, Dec. 3.
Are game tickets included with travel packages?
Game tickets can be added to a travel package. Tickets are not automatically included because many of our travelers are donors to Athletics and/or football season tickets holders and secure their tickets through the Wisconsin Athletic Ticket Office.
Should I get my game tickets through Wisconsin Athletics or add it to my travel package?
In order to accommodate as many alumni and fans as possible, if you are a football season ticket holder or a donor to the Wisconsin Athletics, we ask that you request game tickets through the Wisconsin Athletic Ticket Office. Their process will take your priority points into consideration to get you the best seat available. If you are not a football season ticket holder or donor to Wisconsin Athletics, game tickets can be added to your travel package.
When will you charge my credit card for the balance due for the tour?
After the official bowl announcement has been made on Sunday, Dec. 3, those who had made deposits on the selected Wisconsin bowl game will have their credit cards charged for the remaining balance owed.
What happens to the deposits for the bowl games in which the Badgers are not playing?
Deposits placed on a bowl game for which Wisconsin is not selected will be refunded the week of Monday, Dec. 4. Those refunds will show up on your credit card statement within five to seven business days.
How will I know that I’m confirmed on a tour?
PrimeSport will send a confirmation email on the day when your reservation is received. PrimeSport will also send a detailed itinerary a week prior to the tour .
May I arrive early and/or stay longer after the actual tour?
Yes – as long as you purchase a land-only tour. Then simply request the additional nights you’d like when booking your tour.
What if I need to fly to the bowl destination from somewhere other than Madison?
You may book your flight independently from any airport and join the tour at the hotel by purchasing a land-only package.
When will I know the times of the charter flights?
Departure times will not be known until a week prior to departure. As soon as schedules are set, PrimeSport will send an email to all confirmed passengers. Please be available to fly at any time on the appropriate days.
How will I get from the airport to the hotel?
If you are on a charter air tour, transfers will be provided. If you purchased a land-only package, transportation to the hotel is on your own, and your tour-package offerings will begin upon arrival at your hotel.
Can you accommodate my mobility issues?
Please notify PrimeSport immediately at 866-373-5073. PrimeSport will make every effort to accommodate any mobility issues, but some walking is inherent in all tours to sports events. For this particular tour, travelers should be comfortable walking, or maneuvering their own mobility vehicle, for more than a mile. If you use a wheelchair, please have a responsible companion with you. If you will need accessible seating at the game, please notify PrimeSport when you book your trip.
What if I have more questions?
Please call PrimeSport at 866-373-5073.
