FC Soccer Tailgate Party

Date Night Cincinnati has partnered with FC Cincinnati Soccer to bring you a fun ‘sports date’ night at Nippert Stadium!


The night will be filled with fun starting at 5:30 pm on June 18th at the “Sheakley Lawn” area located just outside of the Nippert Stadium gates. We’ll have a huge tent filled with food, beer and exhibitors. We’ll give you a “soccer 101” guide to help you learn what these crazy soccer fans get so worked up about and why. As a part of your date night package, you’ll receive tickets to the game (Section 119). The soccer game starts at 7:00 pm, you’re welcome to stay in the tent until 7:30 pm for food and beer, but you can leave the tent for the game seats whenever you like. Once you’re out of the tent, you’re on your own for beer and food – and sorry, but you can’t leave the tent with a beer.

Soccer games last 90 minutes, plus 15 minutes for halftime — so your evening date timing is a sure thing. The game kicks off at 7 pm, halftime will be around 7:45 pm, second half will start around 8:00 pm and the game will end – even if the score is tied – around 8:50 to 9:00 pm, Then you can head to whatever date night nightcap destination you prefer in or around the UC Clifton campus area. Nippert Stadium is an absolutely electric venue for professional soccer, with a total of over 35,000 fans attending the first two home games…  vuvuzelas, smoke canisters (only in the rowdy end zone sections, not your section), large waving flags and fun rhythmic chants occur during the entire game making for a fun sports date experience. You can even swing by one of the merchandise booths inside Nippert and pick up an FC Cincinnati scarf so it looks like you’re an old pro at being a soccer fan!
