FC Cincinnati | U.S. Open Cup semifinal match sold out

08/09/2017 02:10 PM

FC Cincinnati announced on Wednesday that tickets to the U.S. Open Cup semifinal match against the New York Red Bulls has sold out.

The club’s ticketing system went down shortly after opening ticket sales to the public on Tuesday. Online ticket sales resumed later Tuesday evening until early Wednesday morning, but FC Cincinnati President and General Manager Jeff Berding says 16,000 tickets were sold in just seven hours.

“I think that speaks to this wonderful soccer movement that we have going on in our city,” said Berding. “We were very confident the game would sell out, of course. But to sell that number of tickets in that small of window speaks to something very special happening in our city.”

Berding had a message for those who weren’t able to secure tickets to Tuesday’s match.

Gates open at 6:30 p.m. for that August 15 match. Fans are encouraged to arrive early.
