Having some of the best supporters in MLS has some perks. Among those perks is awesome tifos!
While we miss matchdays at Nippert Stadium, here are some of the top tifos fans have designed over the years in The Bailey:
Kings of the Queen City
FCC vs. Portland Timbers (March 17, 2019)
The “Kings of the Queen City” had a storybook start to MLS at Nippert Stadium after the Orange and Blue beat the reigning Western Conference champs, 3-0.
Crushed This League
FCC vs. Nashville SC (Oct. 20, 2018)
Finishing the 2018 USL regular season with a 22-game unbeaten run, Cincinnati fans unveiled this tifo before the club advanced past Nashville in penalties.

We Can Do It!

When Rose Lavelle played first U.S. Women’s National Team match in her hometown, she was greeted with this Rosie the Riveter-style design.

Being Saved Offers No Salvation
FCC vs. Columbus Crew SC (Aug. 25, 2019)
This amazing tifo was unveiled at the first HELL IS REAL Derby at Nippert Stadium during league play. The clever wording was an ode to the Crew being “saved” from leaving Ohio by the fan-backed grassroots effort.
Dance Dance Dance
FCC vs. Crystal Palace FC (July 16, 2016)
After Alan Pardew’s dance in the FA Cup final went viral months earlier, this tifo was whipped up to include him dancing with then head coach John Harkes.
Skies of blue, rainbow smoke too
FCC vs. Bethlehem Steel (June 13, 2018)
While not technically a tifo, FCC supporters groups filled Nippert Stadium with incredible plumes of rainbow smoke to celebrate Equality Night before a 2-2 draw.
Protect The Republic
USMNT vs. Venezuela (June 9, 2019)
This tifo with U.S. Men’s National Team head coach Gregg Berhalter was draped ahead of the first USMNT game in Cincinnati. The U.S. lost, 3-0, in its sendoff match before the Concacaf Gold Cup.

Djiby Sends His Regards
FCC vs. New York Red Bulls (Aug. 15, 2017)
Djiby Fall scored every goal for Cincinnati to get the club into the 2017 Lamar Hunt U.S. Open Cp. So, when the team had to play without him in the semifinals, this tifo was displayed in spirit. FCC eventually lost, 3-2, in extra time.
