The Madison 56ers Soccer Club was founded in 1956. The club has a rich history with its adult programs, including a Men's National Amateur Championship in 1992.

The 56ers PLA Men's team is the continuation of the NPSL team that was founded in 2005. As a member of the NPSL, the club won the Midwest Division 4 times - 2006, 2007, 2010 and 2012, which makes the 56ers the most successful club in the Midwest Division of the NPSL. Today, the 56ers compete in the Premier League of America (PLA). The 56ers were one of the founding members of the PLA when it was formed in 2016. It is a Midwest league composed of 12 teams, divided in two conferences: East and West.

The 56ers PLA Men's team plays their home games at Breese Stevens Field, located at 917 East Mifflin Street. It is the oldest playing field in Madison, Wisconsin and has a seating capacity of 5,000 people.

Cristian Brei is the team's General Manager. Cristian is a FIFA licensed players' agent, registered with the U.S. Soccer Federation. Being an agent involved a great extent of traveling throughout the United States, but also to traditional soccer-rich countries such as: Germany, The Netherlands, France, Brazil, Mexico to name just a few. This has allowed Cristian to observe how soccer is run at some of the best clubs in the world, from youth academies all the way to fully professional adult teams, and he is using his experience and knowledge to develop a long-term strategy that will take our team to a higher level.

A new full website will be available in 2017. If you have any questions about the program, please contact Cristian Brei at cbrei@madison56ers.org
