Please see our FAQ on Twitter – Torrent 2020 FAQ
Hello, this is Andy Davi, Owner and General Manager of the Milwaukee Torrent. I hope this message finds you and your family well and in good spirits. This is a challenging time for everyone- but I am optimistic that in the future we will look back at this time and will acknowledge the difficult decisions that we are facing, knowing that we made them with the best interest for the most positive outcome. With that in mind, I have an important message to share today.
Difficult times require difficult decisions. After a great amount of reflection and consideration of the safety and well-being of our players, fans, and everyone involved, today I am announcing that our 2020 season will be cancelled.
The Milwaukee Torrent has a social responsibility to keep players, coaching and training staff, fans and sponsors – everyone involved in home and away games – safe and healthy. While it may appear to be too early to make this decision, the current trajectory of COVID-19 and the approaching season commitments for both women’s and men’s leagues make this a necessary decision now. Postponing a decision by a few weeks would leave too much uncertainty for everyone impacted.
Anyone who knows me knows that a decision like this is difficult to make because the impact will be felt by our talented players, dedicated coaching staff, excellent trainers, tireless volunteers, and our enthusiastic fans. The Milwaukee Torrent is part of this community and right now, to be a community member means to put community first.
I appreciate your understanding and share in your disappointment. Thank you everyone, for your continued support. I want to especially thank Milwaukee Torrent sponsors for their past, present and future support. Our season may not be what we all hope it could be, but I look forward to the creativity and enthusiasm of the Milwaukee torrent players, staff and fans as we support and encourage each other through this time. And, look out 2021, we’ll be ready for an amazing season!
Be well and take care of those around you! We’ll be seeing each other soon!
