Name: OLSC Madison
Match day Meeting Point: Nomad World Pub [Madison], 418 E WILSON STREET MADISON, WI
What they’re about:
Formed unofficially back in 2013. Our once small group has now grown into a huge group of dedicated Reds (especially considering Madison’s size), that we were able to make it “official” this year. We’ve had a few different homes through the years but feel great about our awesome current pub, a dedicated soccer bar called Nomad (who we’re proud to say have one of Milner’s goals playing on repeat on their “futbol” homepage), located just off the main square that surrounds the Capitol Building in downtown Madison. We have a full board of 9 who drive Community Outreach, Fundraising, Media, and Events.
We’ve had some ups and downs since we began. 13/14 was our first season together and we grew rapidly. Everything seemed perfect as we headed into the home stretch but it wasn’t to be… After Rodgers, Klopp has given us plenty to cheer about but our most memorable moments, biggest crowds for finals, have ultimately resulted in runners-up medals but the excitement and drama surrounding the journey to those finals has improved with each one and we hope this season doesn’t disappoint!
We’ve taken road trips, most recently meeting in Michigan, Ann Arbor, for the pre-season against United which was incredible, just under 110 thousand people, most of whom were Reds filling out the Big House! The Anfield Wrap and Boss Night were in Detroit too which made it a fabulous weekend to enjoy with fellow Reds across North America, and beyond.
A few members have been fortunate enough to make the pilgrimage to Anfield for a game or two and while they’re there they’ve been able to find our LFC Madison Forever Stone in the Shankly section outside the Main Stand.
Match day Breakfast:
Coffee, Pints, Mamosa Pitchers and Bloody Marys! Wisconsin do a bloody good bloody Mary! Food is also available… 🙂
Favorite Liverpool FC moment for the Club?
For us, the Champions League Final was a huge turnout of fans, a capacity pub, filled wall to wall with Liverpool Supporters (I counted just 5 Madrid fans and some “neutrals”) plus countless stories of other bars around town being packed full of Reds as well so Mane’s goal nearly blew the windows out but the wind was well and truly knocked out of our sails come the full time whistle but there have been other huge days to remember. The City and Roma games last season were incredible, Allez Allez Allez rung out around the bar and that atmosphere has followed on into this season. I have never seen a bar go off quite like we went off after Origi scored at 90 +6 against Everton… that was just beyond words! Lastly, we had a really great time producing a number of videos for the club so that we could be featured in their new OLSC montage which was so cool to see up there on the official LFC site – even though they only used 2 seconds of our 8 hours of content!
