Nothing is official yet, but details surrounding Cincinnati's bid for a USL franchise continue to emerge.
On Tuesday, the prospective Cincinnati expansion franchise revealed a name, logo, ownership group and stadium situation ahead of a news conference scheduled for Wednesday.
FC Cincinnati will reportedly be owned by the Lindner family and will play next year at the University of Cincinnati’s newly renovated Nippert Stadium. Longtime USMNT captain John Harkes will lead the expansion franchise in their first professional season, according to a video released by the club (watch above).
When contacted by MLSsoccer.com, a USL spokesperson said the league "does not comment on potential franchises."
