Madison Pro Soccer and FOX 47 will host a watch party for the 2018 FIFA World Cup Final at Breese Stevens Field on July 15, and fans will want to be in attendance as the USL Division III founding member will announce the two finalists in the team’s “Name the Club” campaign at halftime.
The stadium will open at 9 a.m. CT, while the match kicks off at 10 a.m. CT. A limited capacity of 1,000 fans will be permitted in the stadium and allowed on the field to watch the culmination of the tournament.
“We’re excited to bring this opportunity for fans to experience the final in a communal environment,” said Madison Pro Soccer Managing Director Peter Wilt. “Watching the World Cup Final with other soccer fans is a special way to celebrate this amazing monthlong tournament that has had so much excitement and drama.”
Forward Madison, Madison Acers, Mad City, AFC Madison, Madison Union, Madison Blues, Isthmus City and Madison Spokes are the eight quarterfinalists of the “Name the Club” campaign.
