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.

Here you’ll find links to all correspondence between the Board of Education and FC Cincinnati.
