FC Cincinnati Opening Game Has Been Set
The brand new $250 million dollar West End Stadium is set to open for the first game on May 16th at 4pm vs. Miami FC! This will be the first match at this stadium and the game will be nationally televised.
President, Jeff Berding, said that the stadium is almost complete now, however the club won’t play at home for the first few weeks of the season just to make sure they have everything ready for an amazing experience at the first home game.
The stadium has capacity for 26,000 fans, but it will allow 30% capacity for the time being.
As a lifelong Cincinnatian and avid soccer fan, this news is very exciting. We have our season tickets purchased and are ready to cheer on our local team. The atmosphere at the games when they played at the University of Cincinnati was exciting. Now with the new stadium, we look forward to sporting our orange and blue in the West End.
