In light of the New Mass Gathering Guidance for Novel Coronavirus (COVID-19) issued by the Wisconsin Department of Health on March 12, the declaration of a national emergency by the federal government on March 13, and Wisconsin's state-wide school closure until April 6, we are cancelling the 2020 Spring Cup, originally scheduled for April 3-5, 2020.
We took this decision after consultation with the Adams County Department of Public Health. While we regret the cancellation, public health interests as well as the health and safety of all the individuals involved in the event supersede any other consideration.
We are refunding the registration fees in full. We will begin issuing the refunds in the coming days. Due to the large number of registered teams and since the necessary steps vary slightly by original payment method (credit card or eCheck), it may take a few business days to complete the refunds. We would like to thank you in advance for your patience during this process.
The Madison 56ers Soccer Club was looking forward to hosting this event. Unfortunately, it is not to be this year and we very much regret that. This public health emergency, however, is much bigger than our beautiful game and we have absolutely no doubt that cancelling the event is the proper course of action at this time.
With kind regards,
Simeon Alder (Madison 56ers Tournament Director)
Tony Wright (Madison 56ers Coaching Director)
