CINCINNATI, OH --- Prior to the start of FC Cincinnati’s inaugural season, the club established the Giveback Program, offering youth soccer programs and local non-profits the opportunity to receive a percentage of the franchise’s ticket sales.
Members of the participating clubs and organizations, were invited to indicate their affiliation when purchasing FCC tickets throughout the season.
FCC is now fulfilling its promise by gifting 20-percent of the ticket revenue brought in by those organizations. Receiving the largest donations are: Cincinnati United SC, Kings Hammer SC, Cincinnati Soccer Alliance, Ohio Elite Soccer Academy, The Library Foundation and Special Olympics of Hamilton County.
“We have always felt that it was important for FC Cincinnati to be an active participant in our community,” said President and General Manager, Jeff Berding. “Our success is rooted in the fact that Cincinnati is a City on the rise. The Giveback program is a way for the franchise to recognize we all benefit when the City is thriving, and to invest back in the city and the people who have invested in us. We thank all the organizations who joined us for the Giveback Program and look forward to continuing the relationship in 2017.”
The program will continue in 2017. Interested parties are asked to contact Kate Solomon at 513-977-KICK or email@example.com.
