FC Cincinnati fans break yet another attendance ecord


After a much needed 4-2 win over New York Red Bulls II in FC Cincinnati's final home game of the season, Cincinnati fans came out in full force, just like they've been doing all season.

30, 417 was the number that broke the USL single game regular season attendance record.

It was a energized crowd that was in it until the end. The 30k+ were also very critical of first official Rosendo Mendoza who doled out 6 yellow cards to the boys in blue for relatively soft tackles. It was a perfect cap to the season here at Nippert as the team goes on to play three consecutive away games against Charlotte, Ottawa, and Toronto.

The team currently sits at 6th place in the Eastern Conference, and look to secure a spot in the playoffs. There is a chance that the team returns home, but they would need to win at least two of their last three games, which are all on the road.

FC Cincinnati with that 30,000+ crowd will now trump 21,000 in yearly attendance, or at least, they got very close to topping that. That 21,000 would be more than the lowest thirteen USL clubs combined, yes, you read that correctly. If you thought that was impressive, FCC has a better average attendance than all but eight MLS squads.

This is what sets FCC apart, and it will be a huge reasoning on why/when they earn that MLS bid, that the players and fans so desperately want. After hooking the United States Women's National Team, Nippert Stadium will be hosting another huge amount of fans on Tuesday night at 7:30 pm. Be there; it will be a fantastic time for soccer fans with the American Outlaws returning to Cincinnati for the first time since they saw less than 6,000 fans show up at Paul Brown Stadium as the USWNT hosted South Korea back in 2008. In that decade or at least the last two years, soccer has grown into quite possible the area's most popular sport.

This season has been an incredible time for FCC, and hopefully, they can continue to dominate when it comes to marketing. This team is hot, and they should stay hot until the start of the 2018 season.
