The Milwaukee Barons encourage all soccer fans attending the match between Newcastle United and Club Atlas to join the Miller Park March to help us prove that Wisconsin can support a high-level professional outdoor soccer team. The Barons are an independent supporters group focused on uniting the community in an effort to bring a true professional soccer team to the state of Wisconsin.

The March will start at 7:30 p.m. and will allow soccer fans of all teams an opportunity to unite and demonstrate that they are ready for a team as they march, chant and sing their way to the stadium. There will be a gathering and a tailgate for supporters beginning at 5:00 p.m. in the ‘Miller’ parking lot being held by various Milwaukee soccer pubs, that include the Highbury Pub, Three Lions Pub, Upper 90 Sports Pub, and Red Lion Pub on Tannery Row. The tailgate is a fundraiser for the Milwaukee Soccer Development Group and will include a DJ, soccer related games, as well as injury prevention assessments from HMS Milwaukee.

Visit www.milwaukeebarons.com to join this grassroots movement, become a member, and help us reach our goal of 5,000 season ticket pledges to finally prove that Wisconsin is ready for a professional soccer team.

The Milwaukee Barons are specifically dedicated to the development of a professional soccer team in Wisconsin. The Milwaukee Barons look to achieve this goal by working with independent supporters to help mobilize soccer enthusiasts from all backgrounds. Our goal is to unite supporters, to positively impact our communities, and to help achieve the dream of bringing a true professional team (USL or NASL) to Wisconsin.
