A pink flamingo dominates the Forward Madison logo, with a diagonal sash representing the city's isthmus. The 11 rays at the top are meant to represent the 11 players on a soccer team and the Roman numerals at the bottom represent 608, the city's area code.

Forward Madison plays its first home league game on Saturday, April 27 at Breese Stevens Field. Kickoff for the Saturday night games is scheduled for 6 p.m.

The team hosts one game on a Wednesday, against Greenville Triumph SC on Aug. 28, and another on a Sunday, Sept. 22, against North Texas SC.

The 10 teams in USL League One will each play 28 games in 2019. The top four teams at the end of the regular season advance to the semifinals, and the League One Final will take place between Oct. 17-21.

Also Monday, the club announced its fifth player signing, with Brazilian striker Paulo Júnior teaming up again with coach Daryl Shore. Paulo played for Shore with Miami FC in the second-division USL from 2009 to 2011.

Paulo made 36 appearances for MLS' Real Salt Lake from 2010 to 2012.

He joins midfielders Josiel Núñez, Jeff Michaud, Danny Tenorio and Don Smart on the Forward Madison roster.
