University of Wisconsin Field House

The Wisconsin Field House (commonly known as the UW Fieldhouse) is an 11,500-seat multi-purpose arena in Madison, Wisconsin, directly south of and abutting Camp Randall Stadium. Designed by Wisconsin State Architect Arthur Peabody in consultation with Paul Cret of the firm of Laird and Cret, the arena opened in 1930. It was home to the Wisconsin Badgers basketball team before it moved to Kohl Center; currently the building is used by the volleyball and wrestling teams. Prior to occupying the Field House, the Badger men's basketball team played their games in the Red Gym. The Wisconsin volleyball team got its first-ever sellout on October 21, 2007, to watch the Badgers play No. 1 Penn State. The "W" crest at the top of the Field House is the official emblem of the University of Wisconsin–Madison. The Field House was added to the National Register of Historic Places in 1998.
