USL SOCCER | LCFC, FCC Updates for July 2

07/02/2018 11:15 AM

The USL regular season continues to heat up across the country.

This past weekend were two important weekends for our two regional teams.


Louisville City FC finished with a 3-3 draw to New York Red Bulls II on Saturday night inside Slugger Field. As a result, the Boys in Purple are still looking for their first win in USL play since May 26.

The big storyline though of Saturday’s game was the fact that it was James O’Connor’s final game as head coach of LCFC:

O’Connor is leaving to coach Major League Soccer’s Orlando City SC.

LouCity FC previously announced that players George Davis IV, Paolo DelPiccolo and Luke Spencer would serve as joint interim head coaches going forward. DelPiccolo knows though that O’Connor will be difficult to replace:


FC Cincinnati picked up another USL win this past Saturday, beating Ottawa Fury FC 2-0 inside Nippert Stadium.

The win gave FCC three more points on the season, moving it up to 34 points in the USL Eastern Conference table, six points clear of the second-place club in the conference standings, Pittsburgh Riverhounds SC (28).

Meanwhile, the Orange and Blue announced on Monday that deposits for 2019 FC Cincinnati season tickets are now being accepted. Fans can reserve their season tickets for the 2019 season, or get more information on the tickets, at or by calling 513-977-KICK (5425).
