Originating in 2019, 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). The Residency Program is supported by the Audi Goals Drive Progress fund. For every goal scored in the regular season, Audi will contribute $500 into the Audi Goals Drive Progress fund.

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.
