Carl Lindner III is the owner of FC Cincinnati, Cincinnati's new United Soccer League club.

Seven games into our inaugural season and the support has been amazing!

Our first home game, you came to see what we were all about. Then you overwhelmed us with 20,000 strong. Last week the rains arrived and you streamed into our stadium to stand with us – and stayed through the downpours.

It’s been electric, exciting, everything we envisioned – and more. We are so grateful for your support as we work to add another jewel in the crown of our Queen City.

Now, THE rivalry comes to our home. Pittsburgh comes to town on May 14 and we are inviting you, Cincinnati, to help us give them a Queen City welcome. Let’s show the world we can fill Nippert Stadium with 25,000 fans in the bright orange of FC Cincinnati!

We hope you will join us for what we expect to be a great rivalry game, a terrific atmosphere and a fun experience for everyone.

Given the tremendous support and with a nod to our city’s German heritage, maybe we should say thank you from Fußball Club Cincinnati!
