Flamingos were set to host North Texas SC on Sunday at Hart Park

TAMPA, Fla. -- The United Soccer League announced Thursday that Forward Madison FC’s upcoming match, scheduled for Sunday, August 30th at 4 p.m. CT against North Texas SC, has been postponed. Due to the COVID-19 crisis, Madison is playing its 2020 home matches in Milwaukee, just 45 minutes north of Kenosha, where the tragic shooting of Jacob Blake occurred this past Sunday.

It’s with pain, frustration, and hope for a brighter future, that the league fully supports the club, its players, supporters, and community as a whole in putting aside soccer in order to shine a spotlight on the fight against racial injustice and systemic oppression.

A rescheduled date for the match will be announced in the coming days.
