Posted at 11:37 AM, Oct 09, 2017

The soccer season is drawing to a close for FC Cincinnati, with its last regular season game coming up on Saturday, Oct. 14.

As the on-the-field action winds down, attention likely will turn more fully to what's happening behind the scenes with the club's plans for a new stadium and its bid for a Major League Soccer franchise.

Team officials have said they'd like the stadium issue settled by the end of the year, and MLS could make its franchise decision by then too.

We'd like to know what you think.
