Forward Madison FC is exploring the possibility of adding several vaccinated sections to its limited-capacity crowds for the team’s upcoming home games on May 15, May 26 and June 6, in accordance with new regulations from Public Health Madison & Dane County.
Forward Madison has begun the process of surveying season ticket holders and fans to gauge interest in the creation of sections where fully-vaccinated guests can gather together without needing to wear masks or distance. Forward Madison understands that not all age groups and categories of people will obtain a vaccination, and will thus continue to offer socially-distanced seating in all other parts of the stadium for fans who are not vaccinated or do not wish to sit in the vaccinated sections.
For the first time since late 2019, fans in the vaccinated sections of Breese Stevens Field would have the opportunity to cheer, sing and enjoy all the revelry of Forward Madison games without needing to maintain a physical distance. Upon leaving the section, those fans would still be required to wear a mask and keep six feet apart from other guests.
To secure a seat in this area, fans would be required to provide documentation showing that at least two weeks have passed since their final vaccination dose. Per Public Health Madison & Dane County regulations, there would be no exception in that rule for children.
Forward Madison is committed to creating a welcoming environment at its games for all fans and looks forward to being part of the Madison community’s return to normal in 2021.
