FC Cincinnati versus Toronto FC II.

IT’S FC CINCINNATI MATCH DAY SIXTEEN! The Cincinnati Bearcats had their home opener last night, thumping Alabama State 63-7. And that meant the soccer match would be of the rare Sunday variety. Here’s a really cool time-lapse of the Nippert Stadium conversion process from football to soccer. Today, our first place FC Cincinnati was taking on last-place Toronto FC 2. You’d think this would be an easy three points. But when FC|C played away at Toronto, Cincy squandered a 3-1 lead to walk away with only a point from a 3-3 draw. We were hoping they learned their lesson and could take care of business this time at home…

FC Cincinnati came out wearing Cincy Shirt’s Cincy Strong t-shirts after the tragedy that took place in our great city on September 6, 2018.
