“The people who did the job in 1920, 1921 did an outstanding job. It lasted very nicely over the years, but Wisconsin winters take their toll and repairs can only go so long, and everything gets old and everything needs to updated and repaired and it will look great when it’s done,” said Michael Wenzel, the Assistant Stadium Manager in an interview with WITI news.

The demolition price tag is over $550,000.00 The new stadium is expected to be complete by the end of 2014.
