New semi-pro football team partnering with UWSP in Marshfield

A new semi-pro football team has found a partner in the University of Wisconsin-Stevens Point in Marshfield.

The Wisconsin Conquerors Football Club, based in Marshfield, practices and trains on the Marshfield campus as it prepares for its inaugural season of 2024. The team was founded by Dr. Alexander Eddo and is coached by Ricardo Pedro.

“UWSP at Marshfield is pleased to welcome the Conquerors to our campus and community,” said Tony Andrews, UWSP at Marshfield campus director. “We are proud to offer our facilities for team training, weightlifting and exercises, while taking pride in our health and wellness programs.”

The club, an expansion team of the National Premier Soccer League (NPSL), opens the NPSL season on Saturday, May 18 at home at Greenheck Fieldhouse in Weston, Wisconsin, against the Kansas City Sol. Tickets for all home games are available at https://wisconsinconquerors.org/npsl-tickets. They also play in the Major Arena Soccer League 2, with an exhibition match against U-19 on Saturday, May 11 in Marshfield.

Three members of the UWSP Pointer men’s soccer team, current students Zilfi Aliu of Wisconsin Rapids and Riley Stevens of Sun Prairie and incoming student Shade Kaiser of Stevens Point, will also play for the Conquerors.

In addition to working with UWSP in Marshfield, the Conquerors also work with the Marshfield Youth Soccer Association to develop players and coaches from the Central Wisconsin soccer community.

“Having the Conquerors at UWSP on the Marshfield campus is a great opportunity to support the Marshfield community and inspire future football players, coaches and fans,” said UWSP Chancellor Thomas Gibson. “We are pleased to help welcome the new team.”
