July 25th is your chance to be a Flamingo for a day

Forward Fans, this is your once-and-a-lifetime opportunity to live out your dream of becoming a professional soccer player by attending our first ever Forward Madison FC Fantasy Camp on Sunday, July 25! 

Over the course of this day-long event, up to 50 adult soccer players will train and be coached by the team and head coach Carl Craig in order to prepare for a full 90 minute FIFA style match. If you sign up, you will get unique access and interactions with the Forward Madison coaching staff and players, who will not only attend Fantasy Camp with you, but will also be your coaches, referees, and new best friends.

Friends and family will be able to attend the match that will include pregame walkout ceremony, photos, and post game tape and interviews. 

Co-captain Connor Tobin, Coach Carl Craig, and Assistant Coach Niel Hlavalty, are excited to bring this tradition to Forward Madison after helping to organize a similar event at their former club, Minnesota Stars FC (precursor to Minnesota United). 

“When the club started tossing around the idea of a Fantasy Camp, the coaching staff was 100% behind it,” said Hlavalty. “Being able to share a "day in the life" of a Forward Madison player is something that I think fans are going to really enjoy. Fans are going to get a true behind the scenes experience and are going to have some uniquely fun interactions with players and coaching staff.” 

In addition to training and playing with the Forward Madison team, the $250 dollar registration fee includes: 

  • Official customized FMFC game jersey, game shorts, game socks, and a training shirt
  • Full training sessions with coaching from FMFC players and coaches
  • Video session
  • Lunch
  • Photos
  • Opportunity to attend a post game party at the rooftop garden

Registration  for the event is now open, so if you’re itching to fulfill your lifelong dream of being a pro soccer player, be sure to complete this form here!
