The FC Cincinnati Academy Affiliate Club and Club Partner programs are in their second year in 2022 and provide both technical and commercial benefits for the local soccer community.
“It’s really important for us as a club to be connected in the soccer market in Greater Cincinnati and the Tri-State area,” said Larry Sunderland, FC Cincinnati’s Director of Player Development. “It’s crucial for us to share knowledge and ideas on soccer, everything from coaching education to player identification and development to the various opportunities the programs provide in the Tri-State area. The Affiliate Club and Club Partner programs allow us to collaborate on the best ideas in soccer in Greater Cincinnati and the growth of these programs have been fantastic.”
