This University of Illinois button would have been proudly worn by any "Fighting Illini" fan. The characteristic blue 'Illinois' text overlaid on orange is an unmistakable mark of the storied and historic university.

The Fighting Illini are the athletic teams of the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign and offers 10 men's and 11 women's varsity sports. The University operates a number of athletic facilities, including Memorial Stadium for football, the State Farm Center for both men's and women's basketball, the Atkins Tennis Center for men's and women's tennis, and Huff Hall for the women's, the men's wrestling, and the men's teams. The Fighting Illini lay claim to over twenty-five National Championships dating back to 1900.

The University of Illinois at Urbana–Champaign, founded in 1867, is a public research-intensive university in the U.S. state of Illinois, and it is ranked eleventh in the nation.
