Information about FC Cincinnati’s Proposal
In January 2018, the Cincinnati Public Schools Board of Education was asked by Football Club Cincinnati (FCC), a professional soccer team, to consider a land-agreement proposal that would allow FCC to use the current location of CPS’ Stargel Stadium (behind Taft IT High School) in exchange for the construction of a new stadium across the road from Taft.
The Board is committed to openness and transparency in all matters, including the discussion about this proposal.
