Forward Madison FC will host the UW-Madison Men’s Soccer team for a special exhibition game on Tuesday, August 10, 7 p.m. at Breese Stevens Field, the Flamingos announced Thursday.
The ‘Battle for Madison,’ will be the Flamingos’ first exhibition match since 2019, giving fans a chance to see their city’s professional club take on its collegiate counterpart.
Single-game tickets for the August exhibition game will go on sale Monday, June 7 at 10 a.m. on ForwardMadisonFC.com. Students will be able to receive a special discount for the game.
The teams first met in April of 2019, with the Flamingos winning 2-0 in their first-ever game at Breese Stevens Field. FMFC made the short trip to the McClimon Soccer Complex later that year for a scrimmage, coming home with a 2-1 victory.
The two teams were set to play each other again in April of 2020, but the game was canceled due to health and safety concerns.
