FC Cincinnati versus Pittsburgh Riverhounds.

IT’S FC CINCINNATI MATCHDAY 15! There was an odd 4 o’clock kickoff for today’s FC Cincinnati match as they were playing host to Pittsburgh Riverhounds…

And it was kind of a chilly, rainy afternoon…

But none of that mattered because we got new FC|C tall boy coozies…

We waited for the match to start and the drizzle to end under an overhang at the east end of Nippert Stadium by The Bailey…

O say can you see…

Here we go…

Pittsburgh scored in just the second minute…

I got up to go to the restroom and wouldn’t you know it… FC Cincinnati pulled level

And that’s the way it would stay at halftime

And the second half was about to get underway…

Djiby made an appearance…

Despite the rain and the odd start time, there was another great crowd…

And the match would end 1-1

After the match, we took an Uber back to Northside and stopped into Higher Gravity for a little taster flight before header home…

FC Cincinnati’s final home match of the regular season will take place on September 16th against New York Red Bulls 2. And we’ll see you there! 😀⚽️❤️

FC Cincinnati versus Pittsburgh Riverhounds.

Tonight, we went up to Nippert Stadium with Cleve & Alyssa to take in FC Cincinnati’s fourth home match of the season. FC Cincinnati was playing host to the Pittsburgh Riverhounds, and they were having on Orange Out for tonight’s unveiling of FC|C’s new predominantly orange alternate third kit…

FC Cincinnati named some of the Bengal’s star players honorary captains for the match to further the Cincinnati-Pittsburgh sport rivalry…

This is one of my favorite parts of every match, where the teams come out of the tunnel and onto the pitch…

The Bailey unveiled their tifo for today’s match…

Elvis. “You ain’t nothing but a river dog.” Quality stuff.

Kickoff! Here we go…

The Bailey sat for the 16th minute in honor of the 16 Real Madrid fans who were murdered in Iraq by ISIS this week. The 16th minute of today’s match was also a moment of silence throughout the entire stadium…

 

Goosebumps.

GOOOOOOAL! CINCINNATI!

That Sprinkle donut was back again at halftime…

And the moment everyone was waiting for, tonight’s match attendance. It was announced before the match that over 20,000 tickets had been sold

For the second time, FC Cincinnati set a new USL single game attendance record!

And at full-time, Cincinnati 1 Pittsburgh 0!

 

Another great match in a truly amazing atmosphere! FC Cincinnati broke their own USL attendance record. They had more people at their match than all but one MLS match including the Columbus Crew, who they outdrew by over 7000 supporters. FC|C is averaging 17,462 in attendance through 4 games, and the Crew is averaging 16,383 through 4 games. And on top of all that, FC|C moved into a tie for second place in the USL’s Eastern Conference! There’s something pretty incredible happening right now in Cincinnati! And we’re thrilled to be right in the middle of it! 🙂 #23375
