FCC to Launch “Ignite and Unite Tour” Tomorrow

CINCINNATI – FC Cincinnati will take its new Major League Soccer crest on a road show around Greater Cincinnati this week, launching the “Ignite and Unite Tour” through the region on Tuesday.

Following tonight’s brand unveiling at the Woodward Theater, FCC will take a life-size crest around the city with daily stops at locales around the area. The first five people at each stop who participate in a social media initiative will win new FC Cincinnati MLS products, and every person who comes by will receive a special gift.

However, before the tour launches, FCC will open its newly redesigned FC Cincinnati Team Store at 43 East 4th St. at 10 a.m. on Tuesday, Nov. 13. The new store will be stocked with brand-new FC Cincinnati gear with its just-released MLS crest and branding.

The “Ignite and Unite Tour” begins Tuesday at Fountain Square, and will make stops at the Cincinnati Zoo, The Banks, Findlay Market and Laurel Playground. All stops are rain or shine, and additional stops may be added throughout the week. Check FC Cincinnati’s social media channels (@fccincinnati) for more information or additional events.
