FC Cincinnati has officially opened its ticket sales for their 2020 season and last year at Nippert Stadium.
The club, which held its inaugural season this year, sold more than 20,000 season tickets in 2019, placing them third among first year sales for a MLS expansion team. The team already began the renewal process for current season ticket holders in August and sold 16,000 seats for the upcoming season, the club noted in a press release. In order to guarantee ticket priority, the team suggests that fans buy tickets as soon as possible, since they will be able to select their seats for the 2020 season immediately.
Jeff Smith, the FCC Vice President of Ticket Sales and Service, said in a statement that fans have renewed their season tickets “in record numbers and at a rate we’ve never seen before,” noting that “we can only thank our fans for the confidence in what we’re building.”
“That said, with the record renewal rates we’ve had, that may mean that we will soon have to look at what our available season ticket capacity will be in 2020,” he said. “Last year, we reached that point in mid-April, which was earlier than ever, and we had far fewer renewed season tickets in the off-season. Once we learn our 2020 schedule and then begin to open single-game tickets, mini plans and group tickets, it very much limits available season ticket inventory. We highly, highly recommend that anyone who wants to be an FCC Season Ticket Member in 2020 secure their seats as soon as possible.”
FC Cincinnati will play its final season at the 33,250-seat Nippert Stadium, which is one of the oldest sporting facilities in America, in 2020. The West End Stadium, their new venue capped between 25,500 and 26,5000, will open in 2021. It will be one of MLS’ largest soccer-specific stadiums.
