In an effort to educate and inform the soccer loving public, the Sons of a Pitch have put together a brief introduction to Major League Soccer’s newest expansion franchise: FC Cincinnati (“FCC”). FCC will be the 24th team in the current league, and will most likely join the Eastern Conference. Coming off two very respectable years in the United Soccer League (“USL”), FCC found its greatest success as a semi-finalist in 2017’s Lamar Hunt US Open Cup. There, they defeated the Columbus Crew and Chicago Fire before suffering defeat to the Red Bulls of New York. Combining that historic run with regularly selling-out home games, FCC were selected as the next expansion franchise.
Join the hosts as they give a brief overview of the history, management, and roster of FCC. For more in depth reading, see the links below. We intend to keep us with expansion teams more regularly, so let us know if you like the segment and what more we can do to improve your knowledge of the league. In the meantime, welcome again to FCC!
