Ahead of Hell is Real derby, FC Cincinnati urge fans to turn in Crew gear

If you have some Columbus Crew SC gear and you want to part with it, FC Cincinnati have a deal for you.

The 2019 MLS expansion team announced on Monday that they are running a promotion ahead of their Heineken Rivalry Week game against the Crew on Sunday (6 pm ET | FS1 in US; MLS LIVE on DAZN in Canada). If fans bring Crew gear (such as t-shirts, jerseys, sweatshirts and the like) to the FC Cincinnati Team Shop, they will get a 30% discount of their total on-site purchase of FC Cincy gear.

The promotion is intended to turn Ohio "orange and blue" in honor of FC Cincy's colors and will run through 5 pm ET on Saturday.

Sunday's game will be the first-ever Hell is Real derby in league play at Nippert Stadium, after they played to a 2-2 draw at MAPFRE Stadium earlier this month. Fans are encouraged to wear blue for the game for a "blue out," and you can find available tickets for the clash at FC Cincinnati's website.
