Well how about that! FC Cincinnati becomes champions in the first competition they take part in. I don’t care that it’s a preseason friendly tournament. Hey, silverware, is silverware. Ask Arsenal, am I right? Regardless, the club went down to Florida and took care of business against some quality sides. Plus, any time a USL side can knock off a MLS side it’s definitely newsworthy. Let’s hope that momentum carries over into the regular season which is approaching rapidly.
On This Episode
We opened this week’s show by recapping FC Cincinnati’s tournament championship last week in the IMG Suncoast Pro Classic down in Bradenton, FL. During the week, the club managed a few firsts. In the 2nd game of the tournament, FC Cincinnati knocked of MLS side New York City FC 2-1 for the franchise’s first win. In the club’s 3rd game, they knocked off HB Koge from Denmark 4-0 securing the franchise’s first clean sheet.
Speaking of firsts, on this week’s podcast we welcomed Dan McNally, the Vice President of Operations for FC Cincinnati. He’s the first member of the club to join us on the podcast. Fitting considering he was the club’s first hired employee. Dan fills us in on his role with the club and how he managed to land a gig in operations in the first place. He also hinted at some of the upcoming plans the organization has this summer to enhance the fan experience at Nippert Stadium.
We also capped the show by discussing the changes/goals of Cincinnati Soccer Talk. We also were excited to mention our newest teammate here at CST, Michael Walker. Michael’s been crushing it with blog posts this week and we’re thrilled to have him on board contributing!
