Entering its second season in 2020-21, the FC Cincinnati Academy has expanded the club’s player development pyramid to five youth teams. The club now sponsors two Pre-Academy teams (Under-13 and Under-14 teams) and three Academy teams (Under-15, Under-17 and Under-19 teams).

As the FCC Academy continues to grow, young players will join the club from all over the country and all over the world. That’s where the Residency Program comes into play.

The FC Cincinnati Academy is looking for Cincinnati-area host families to welcome these players into their homes and to the Queen City. Host families will provide a safe home-away-from-home that will help players grow on and off the field while training to become future FC Cincinnati first-team players.

Families interested in becoming a host family please email academy@fccincinnati.com.
