"Our fans and supporters have demonstrated immense pride for Cincinnati and have been incredibly active in volunteering time for our community-based programs," said Kate Solomon, FC Cincinnati Vice President of Communications and Executive Director of the FC Cincinnati Foundation. "We are excited about this opportunity to not only get our fans involved, but to have them be part of something to brighten up a city we all love, on behalf of FC Cincinnati."
In March when FCC passed the 20,000 mark for season-ticket sales, the club announced this project as part of its community engagement initiatives. This commitment is part of the club's overall pledge to benefit and better the Greater Cincinnati community, which has resulted in more than 500 volunteer hours from fans and supporters alone so far in 2019.
FC Cincinnati return to the field on Saturday, May 25, when the team hosts the New York Red Bulls at Nippert Stadium. First kick is set for 7:30 p.m., 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. Pick-Six mini plans, and individual-game tickets and group options are on sale at fccincinnati.com/tickets or by calling 513-977-5425 (KICK).
