FC Cincinnati versus Louisville City FC.

IT’S FC CINCINNATI MATCH DAY THREE! This evening we ventured over to Nippert Stadium to watch FC Cincinnati take on their closest geographical USL rival, Louisville City FC…

We sat in general admission for the very first time so we could all sit together. It’s not a bad view from over there…


The march of the supporters groups into The Bailey…

It was a pretty chilly evening. It wasn’t the coldest match we’ve ever been to but it was nowhere near the warmest either…


SPOILER ALERT: Djiby would get sent off later in the match; a straight red…


LCFC snatched the early lead…

And that’s the way the match would stay for the rest of the first half. Back and forth. Back and forth. But no more goals from either side… SPRINKLES!

I just don’t know what to say. There really aren’t words. I think I’m mostly just really disappointed because I almost wore the same exact thing but I didn’t think I’d be warm enough on such a chilly evening…

😐 🦄  Anyway, there was another good crowd packed into Nippert for tonight’s match…


And the second half is underway…

GOAL FC|C! 1-1!

And that’s the way the match would finish, 1-1. That’s better than a loss. The matches are always a bunch of fun to watch live. The atmosphere is always incredible. And it was a blast to get my parents out to their very first FC|C match. But Djiby got sent off so there’s that, which will be a fun plot twist for the team to try to deal with…

FC Cincinnati’s next home match isn’t until May 13th when they welcome Orlando City B to Nippert Stadium. We’ll see you there! 🙂

UPDATE: Apparently, Djiby bit or tried to bite someone during the match and has been suspended for an additional five matches.

From the USL:

FC Cincinnati’s Djiby Fall has received a six-game suspension and undisclosed fine. It consists of a one-game suspension and fine for the red card for serious foul play, and an additional five-game suspension and fine for major game misconduct during last week’s match against Louisville City FC. Fall’s suspension runs through June 3, pending any schedule changes.

[UPDATE] – The USL has provided further clarification to its disciplinary report for Week 5. Djiby Fall’s five-game suspension and undisclosed fine for Major Game Misconduct is for biting an opponent during the match on April 22, 2017.
