FC Cincinnati has had a tremendous summer. The club has set new records for attendance and has been successful on the pitch, hovering near the top of the USL Eastern Conference Standings. Now, the Orange & Blue can add “being featured on an international television program produced by FIFA” to the list.
On Friday, FC Cincinnati was featured in a program that aired on the BeIN Sports show FIFA Football. This FIFA Football episode featured interviews with FC Cincinnati president and GM Jeff Berding, Head Coach John Harkes, Omar Cummings and Austin Berry.
The feature also added fan interviews with the two founders from the first two supporters groups. Payne Rankin, President of The Pride and Ryan Lammi, President of Die Innenstadt offered up their thoughts on all things FC Cincinnati. The BeIN Sports segment featured fan marches through Nippert Stadium and highlights from the Crystal Palace match.
Who would have thought that when the team was announced last August that it would come this far? The summer of 2016 will be one we’ll never ever forget in the Queen City!
