FC CINCINNATI | FCC Getting Ready for Huge Match Tuesday

08/14/2017 05:22 PM

FC Cincinnati is getting ready to host its third MLS team of the season on Tuesday when FCC takes on New York Red Bulls.

Kickoff is set for 8 p.m. ET inside Nippert Stadium.

There is a lot of excitement for the U.S. Open Cup semifinal round match-up, so much so that it is already sold out.

FCC has played well against MLS teams this tournament, topping both Columbus Crew SC and Chicago Fire en route to a spot in the semifinal round.

FC Cincinnati midfielder Kenney Walker joined Andrew Chernoff on Sports Night to preview Tuesday’s match against NY Red Bulls.

The winner of the match Tuesday will advance to the U.S. Open Cup Final, which takes place in September. Sporting KC punched its ticket to the Final earlier this month after beating San Jose in penalty kicks.
