FC Cincinnati is poised to set another USL attendance record, as the club is slated to achieve a new high mark during its regular season home finale.
On Thursday, the club announced that ticket sales for the September 16 match against New York Red Bulls II have already exceeded numbers from the team’s previous record. FC Cincinnati’s match on August 5 against Orlando City B became the new regular season single-game USL attendance record by drawing 25,308 fans to Nippert Stadium.
“We continue to be overwhelmed by the support from our fans,” FCC president and general manager Jeff Berding said in a statement. “The passion for FC Cincinnati soccer in our city is truly second to none and we would like to thank all our fans for their unending support.”
Since its inaugural season in 2016, FC Cincinnati’s attendance marks have become a story line of their own, as the team drew a total of 259,437 last season, setting several records along the way. Thus far during the 2017 season, the team’s total attendance is 308,764.
