FCC Cincinnati raises ticket prices by $5 for friendly against Valencia CF

Playing against elite clubs calls for higher ticket prices.

FCC Cincinnati has raised nearly all sections at Nippert Stadium by $5 for their international friendly against Valencia CF later this summer.

Zone 1 (dark blue in the chart above) will cost fans $35. The Bailey (red) will cost $25, youth/family (dark green) and general admission (yellow) will cost $15. Upper level 1 (light blue) will cost $25 and upper level 2 (purple) will cost $20.

Zone 2 (orange) is the only section that did not see a price increase. That zone will remain $25.

FC Cincinnati began selling tickets for the match to season ticket holders on June 12. Tickets for the friendly will go on sale to the general public on Friday, June 30.

FCC drew 35,061 fans for a friendly against Crystal Palace last summer and 30,160 fans when they hosted the Columbus Crew in the U.S. Open Cup earlier this summer. A record crowd is expected when the team hosts La Liga's Valencia CF on July 24.
