Ahead of its September 14 match at Richmond, Forward Madison FC will conduct a nationwide bus tour that includes a beer delivery to North Carolina FC fans.
Named the “Irruption” Tour – inspired by the phenomenon of irregularly migrating birds – the bus tour will make stops everywhere from Chicago to Mingo County, W. Va.
The Irruption Tour, styled after large-scale musical circuits, came to life after fans of North Carolina FC asked their former player (and current FMFC captain) Connor Tobin to bring them some Wisconsin beer. Forward front office staff, along with fans and soccer celebrities, will end the trip by delivering a keg of New Glarus Spotted Cow to those fans at the game.
FMFC will broadcast content from its tour bus, which was provided by Metro Kia of Madison, on its social media channels during the trip. The Tour will kick off on Sept. 12 from Breese Stevens Field in Madison.
Forward Madison currently sits in fourth place in its inaugural USL League One season, occupying the league’s final playoff spot with four matches remaining. The Flamingos will play two more games at home this year, including an exhibition against the Milwaukee Torrent on Sept. 17.
