We’re now under a fortnight away from FC Cincinnati’s first ever summer international friendly against English Premier League side Crystal Palace FC. And as has become the norm for FCC matches this season, another record setting crowd is expected to turn out for what is arguably the biggest event in Cincinnati soccer history.
Beginning today, a limited edition FC Cincinnati vs Crystal Palace “Split Scarf” is now available exclusively in our downtown shop and online store! The scarf will also be available for purchase at the friendly itself, while supplies last.
A staple of summer friendlies and big match ups, a split scarf normally features a design that’s been “split”, one half dedicated to each club participating. In the case of this scarf, the front design features each team’s name and logo, along with the date and location of the friendly. On the reverse you’ll find Blue and Red stripes famously found on the front of Crystal Palace’s traditional home shirts, with the other half featuring the Orange & Blue Bavarian checker pattern commonly found on flags in The Bailey.
With this scarf being designed exclusively for this match, only a limited quantity was produced. So if you want your piece of Cincinnati soccer history, you better act fast. And be sure to keep your eyes peeled for more commemorative merchandise to debut later this week to celebrate our friendly with Crystal Palace.
