FC Cincinnati is a professional soccer team that plays in Major League Soccer, having entered the league as its 24th team this season. The club’s ownership group is led by managing owners Carl H. Lindner III, Scott Farmer and George Joseph. MLS invited Cincinnati to the league as an expansion team in May 2019, giving the club one of the fastest run-ups to its first-division launch in league history. Originally founded in 2015 by Lindner III and current President Jeff Berding, FCC began play in the USL in 2016. The club won the 2018 USL Regular-Season Championship in record-setting fashion, and earned postseason berths in all three of its USL seasons. In 2017, FC Cincinnati also advanced to the semifinals of the Lamar Hunt U.S. Open Cup, a run that included victories over two MLS squads. The team currently plays its home games at the historic Nippert Stadium on the campus of the University of Cincinnati, and has started construction on a $250 million, privately funded, 26,000+ seat soccer-specific stadium in the West End neighborhood of Cincinnati that is expected to open in early 2021.
