Out of the Basin, Up to Nippert.
At the risk of sounding redundant, I'll keep my comments brief. If you read back in February, I editorialized my excitement for the coming of FC Cincinnati, the city's latest pro sports franchise. I spoke about what the team meant to me, what it meant for the city, and what I was doing to support both. Over the weekend, FCC held its first home match, a 2-1 victory of Charlotte.
I documented the experience, one of the best moments I've ever had as a Cincinnati sports fan.
As a founding member of Die Innenstadt, a supporters group based out of the urban basin, I'll be regularly updating the "news" section. The reason I'm posting this to QC/D is to share what I felt was a historic moment in the city's ever evolving history. Nearly 15,000 people packed Nippert Stadium for professional soccer and the crowd was unlike any other. Read the full recap and future soccer stories here.
QC/D will be back with a fresh update later this week. One about a forgotten airport (history and soccer, it's a damn good week).
