Now that FC Cincinnati is in MLS,it’s time to start caring about CONCACAF Champions League. That’s just the cost of getting your team promoted and not having to play away to Louisville anymore. But CCL is here, it can be absolutely hilarious, and this year could be a great one for MLS.
When I attended my first FC Cincinnati game in June of 2018, I had no idea what I was getting myself into. I was not a soccer fan growing up, but I have always been incredibly proud of all things Cincinnati - from our sports teams to our chili. I had moved to Dayton, OH* for school and was only somewhat aware of the phenomenon that was FCC. When I was offered cheap tickets over father’s day weekend 2018, I wanted to see what all the buzz was about.
When FCC first started, I didn’t know a ton about soccer. I was just learning about the beautiful game as FCC started my sophomore year at UC. When I returned for year 3, I would discover that this awesome new professional soccer team was practicing out in the open and I could just walk up, have a seat, and watch.
Orange & Bluegrass hopes to bring together season ticket holders, non-season ticket holders, those with ties to Cincy, and those with no ties to Cincy. There is one common thing that drives the group, the love for the Orange & Blue!
