MADISON, Wis. (WMTV) - Forward Madison FC will host the UW-Madison Men’s Soccer team at 7 p.m. Tuesday, Aug. 10 at 7 p.m. for a special exhibition game.

The ‘Battle for Madison’ is set to be the Flamingos’ first exhibition match since 2019, Forward Madison says. The game will give fans a chance to see the professional club take on its collegiate counterpart.

Single-game tickets for the August exhibition game will go on sale at 10 a.m. Monday, June 7. You can purchase them on the Forward Madison website. Season ticket holders will have the game automatically included in their 2021 packages, but can choose to opt out if they wish to do so.

Forward Madison FC and UW-Madison were set to square off again in April of 2020, but the game was canceled due to health and safety concerns.

The teams first met in April of 2019, with the Flamingos winning 2-0 in their first-ever game at Breese Stevens Field, according to Forward Madison. Since then Forward Madison’s matchups with UW-Madison have become an annual tradition.
