Earlier this week the Madison Common Council approved a use agreement for Breese Stevens Field with Big Top Events, and last night, Big Top officials unveiled Madison Pro Soccer franchise as one of the founding members of the USL Division III. Play will start here next March.
The teams name and colors will be determined through a community engagement process so stay tuned for more information on that!
The team is owned by Vern Stenman, Conor Caloia, Steve Schmitt and Jim Kacmarcik, pictured above along with newly hired managing director Peter Wilt and officials with USL Division III.
Breese Stevens is a wonderful venue for all sorts of activities and entertainment and will be even better once new seating is installed along with new restrooms, concessions and a kitchen. This weeks announcement came after months of meetings and discussions with neighborhood residents, Alder Ledell Zellers, Madison Parks officials and Vern Stenman and his team.
