CINCINNATI – With support around Cincinnati’s new professional soccer team, FC Cincinnati, building up for their debut next year, Cincinnati’s first professional soccer team, the Cincinnati Saints, announced they were disbanding Friday.

The Saints were founded in 2009 by a group of local soccer players from local and regional leagues who wanted to build up an amateur team into a professional team.

The Saints wrote on Twitter that their women’s team was sold to their league, the WPSL, and will continue to play in Cincinnati under a new name.

There has also been discussion of moving the men's team to Dayton, they wrote.
