Milwaukee Soccer Development Group (MSDG) is pleased to announce the hosting of a soccer march at Twisted Fisherman Crab Shack for the UW-Milwaukee (UWM) Vs Marquette University (MU) men’s soccer game. With the game starting at 7 p.m., the tailgate starts at 5 p.m. The Twisted Fisherman Crab Shack is located at 1200 W. Canal Street, just a few blocks away from Valley Fields where the game is being played. The tailgate is a follow up to MSDG’s Professional Soccer in Milwaukee symposium held on July 15th at Milwaukee City Hall. The tailgate is a challenge to the local soccer community to unite and show its strength of support for professional outdoor soccer in Milwaukee.

Each year, the UWM and MU men’s soccer teams battle for the Milwaukee Cup trophy. The match stands as one of the few examples of a true derby in American soccer and their soccer rivalry is also one of the oldest, dating back to 1973.

The Milwaukee Cup March is not only a chance to support local soccer but also demonstrate Milwaukee’s desire for a professional outdoor soccer team, and will also include a Q&A with select members of the local soccer community. After the discussion, soccer fans will march to the Marquette Fields west on Canal Street. The Milwaukee Cup is the highest level of outdoor soccer in Milwaukee and the goal will be to sell out this game and in doing so prove that Wisconsin is ready for a professional outdoor team.

The Twisted Fisherman will donate a portion of the proceeds towards MSDG’s goal of raising funds to properly convert a set of unused tennis courts to soccer courts in the Greater Milwaukee Area. Court conversion includes new line painting, goals and signs. MSDG is also hosting a 3v3 tournament on Saturday, October 11th at the Burnham Park Tennis Courts for the same cause.

Anyone interested in media coverage, sponsorship, or further information about MSDG’s Milwaukee Cup March should inquire via email to jmoran@milsoccerdg.com.
