Ticket prices for the Louisville City FC game will be a "throw-back" to the club's final pricing for the 2018 season - their last in the USL when the clubs met regularly.
FCC Season Ticket Members will have an exclusive presale window that will begin today and run through 9 a.m. ET on Wednesday, June 5, during which time they will receive an additional ticket discount. During that time, STMs can secure the seats on their accounts and also add additional seats for this game. Further information will be emailed to Season Ticket Members later today.

This is the first year that FC Cincinnati will begin play in the U.S. Open Cup in the competition's fourth round. In the club's first three seasons as a USL Championship team, the Orange and Blue began play in the tournament's second round.
The winner of the June 12 fourth-round match will advance to the Round of 16. U.S. Soccer will conduct the draw for the Round of 16 and Quarterfinal match-ups on Thursday, June 13.
FC Cincinnati is 7-2-2 all-time in the U.S. Open Cup. In 2017, FC Cincinnati advanced to the semifinals of the USOC, falling in extra time to the New York Red Bulls in front of a then sell-out crowd of 33,250 fans at Nippert Stadium.
FC Cincinnati returns to the field on Saturday, June 1, when the team travels to face the Colorado Rapids. First kick is set for 8:30 p.m. ET, and the game will be televised live on WSTR 64, streamed on FloFC (in-region) and ESPN+ (out-of-region), carried on the radio on WDJO with an audio stream on TuneIn (WDJO) and fccincinnati.com.
