Forward Madison FC set to open new season Saturday night


Forward Madison FC will play their first match of the season against Chattanooga Red Wolves SC this Saturday, April 2nd.

The Flamingos are excited to see new players in their fourth USL League One season like Drew Conner, Andrew Wheeler-Ominu, Mikey Maldonado and Cesar Murillo who look to provide a new spark to the club. Forward Madison also welcomes back returning players such as Phil Breno, Eric Leonard and Derek Gebhard for another season with the pink and blue.

The Flamingos are looking to improve upon their disappointing 8-8-12 season last year that saw them finish 9th of 12 teams in the USL League One standings. The club will be managed by newly-hired Head Coach and Technical Director Matt Glaeser.
