RICHMOND, Va. – (Friday, March 27, 2020) – The Richmond Kickers are set to compete in a match of Connect 4 against Forward Madison FC on Saturday, March 28 at 3 p.m. ET, 2 p.m. CT.

The match will take place on Twitter on the same day that the teams were originally supposed to face off on the pitch before the COVID-19 pandemic delayed the start to the USL League One season.

A rivalry birthed over social media and at a Red Army Tailgate during the 2019 season, the Henny Derby is a competition and a bond between Richmond and Madison that was never contained exclusively in stadiums and grass fields.

Following the end of the Connect 4 match, a rebroadcast of the Forward Madison 0-1 Richmond Kickers match from 2019 will be played on the Kickers' official Twitch channel. More details of that broadcast will be announced at a later time.

Fans can watch the Connect 4 match unfold on each team's Twitter account:
