Major League Soccer awards franchise to FC Cincinnati for 2019



CINCINNATI – Football fans paint the city of Orange and Blue to celebrate the meteoric rise of FC Cincinnati and become the third major league sports franchise of the Queen City

Major League Soccer Commissioner Don Garber will announce that FC Cincinnati will join the league in 2019 – one year ahead of schedule – as he takes the club to the league at 17:30 in the Rheingeist brewery in Over-the-Rhine

The stage stands and the loudest, proudest FC Cincinnati fans from "The Bailey" have packed into the Rhenish taproom to cheer the big celebration.

Fountain Square is hosting a free, public watchman party with even more to come Celebrations and celebrations follow 9 o'clock Hundreds, perhaps thousands of passionate and loud fans of FC Cincinnati, who have set a record attendance after the record at UC Nippert Stadium, are expected at the celebration on the square.

FC Cincinnati and its fans get their cake and eat it too on a historic day of football and sports in Queen City. While everyone knew that the MLS invitation would come, the only question was whether FC Cincinnati would join next year or in 2020, when it was originally slotted.

The League wanted to play one of their three new franchises next year FC Cincinnati seemed better positioned than Nashville or Miami. That should give FC Cincinnati a competitive edge in identifying and signing players for the other two clubs.

The club could also officially announce a new name. FC Cincinnati plans to rebrand as the Football Club Cincinnati (of Futbol Club Cincinnati) for MLS in honor of the city's German heritage.

Mayor John Cranley, who proclaimed it "Orange and Blue Day," will speak on the invitation-only announcement, along with Carl Lindner III, the club's managing owner and CEO, and Jeff Berding, president and general manager of the club Long, tough negotiations were made so that the club could build a football stadium in the West End.

Fearful fans gathered before lunch on Tuesday before the Rhine ghost and were looking forward to the announcement. Dozens of members of the FC Cincinnati fan organizations – including Downtown, the Pride, the Legion, Queen City Firm and the Bailey Bast ds – were invited to share the announcement in the Rheingeist taproom. They will be on both sides of the stage for the 30-minute program, and we expect it to be much livelier and louder than the one in Nashville last December.

The MLS announcement will begin with introductions of ESPN football analysts Taylor Twellman and Adrian Healey. Lindner, Garber and Lindner will then go on stage together with Berding and Cranley. Berding will take a seat on the podium and welcome Garber, known for his Twitter handle @TheSoccerDon.

Garber will put the team's scarf, the age-old traditional football symbol, around Lindner's neck. After Lindner's speech, a two-minute video will show highlights of the meteoric rise of FC Cincinnati after joining the United Soccer League in 2016.

Cranley will then present his proclamation to Lindner, followed by an MLS video, which FC Cincinnati welcomes the league.
