2016 Moment of the Year

By D.J. Switzer - Director of Communications, 12/12/16, 9:45AM EST


Last week, we asked FC Cincinnati supporters to watch a video highlighting some of the most incredible moments of our inaugural season, and then to vote on which was their collective favorite of the year. 

Many of those moments in contention captured attention not just in the Queen City, but also across the country. We presumed that would make it a pretty difficult selection for our fans -- but we were wrong.

After tabulating the more than 1800 votes cast since the poll went live last Wednesday, it was clear one of those moments stood out far more than any other in the eyes of our supporters.

With nearly two thirds of the total fan vote, Mich Hildebrandt's double save at Toronto FC on April 24th is officially your 2016 Moment of the Year! 

In addition to earning that distinction, the 2016 USL Goalkeeper of the Year's acrobatic pair of saves also earned Hildebrandt USL team of the week honors and the #3 spot on that evening's ESPN SportsCenter Top 10 list.

Many thanks to all the supporters who participated in the fan vote, and congratulations to Mitch for even more well-earned recognition!
