Supporting FC Cincinnati: Fan Clubs & Group Supporter Sections

What are the FC Cincinnati Supporter Clubs Called?

FC Cincinnati has several loyal supporter clubs, including Die Innenstadt, The Pride and The Briogáid.

Since 2015, Cincinnati’s soccer club supporters have shown out in full force for their squad as it went from an idea to a United Soccer League club to a Major League Soccer club. All of the supporter clubs fall under The Incline Collective, the overseeing body that pulls the clubs together for events, the most well-known of which is “The March” – a walk through the city that all the supporter clubs do before each match of The Orange and Blue.

Die Innenstadt

Who are Die Innenstadt

Die Innenstadt is the largest independent supporters club of FC Cincinnati. Roughly translated from German as “the inner city” or “the urban core,” Die Innenstadt is an all-encompassing group that is made up of supporters all over the world. According to their website, Die Innenstadt sees itself as “a means of enjoying sport, but equally, a way to give back to the greater community around us.”

Where Do Die Innenstadt Sit?

Die Innenstadt sit, or rather stand, in The Bailey, the section of FC Cincinnati’s TQL Stadium meant for supporter clubs. All groups in the Incline Collective stand in The Bailey, which spans five sections at the north end of the stadium behind the goal. Seating in The Bailey is general admission, so it is first come, first serve.

How to Join Die Innenstadt

Anyone can join Die Innenstadt, as you don’t have to be 21 to join. Annual membership costs $25. For more info, visit their Instagram and X accounts.

The Pride

Who is The Pride?

The Pride was FC Cincinnati’s first supporters group. Founded in 2015 when the idea of a professional soccer team in Cincinnati was still just an idea, The Pride aims to provide world-class support for the growth of soccer in The Queen City. The Pride is “a Supporters Group made up of people who have never been in a Supporters Group before,” according to its website. The Pride also has a satellite chapter, The Pride Orange & Bluegrass, based in Lexington, Kentucky.

Where Do The Pride Sit?

The Pride, like Die Innenstadt, are members of the Incline Collective and stand in The Bailey during home matches.

How Do The Pride Members Show Team Pride?

The Pride meets at Northern Row on match days to meet up before The March. For away matches, The Pride members watch at Molly Malone’s in Covington, Kentucky, while The Pride Orange & Blue meets at Ethereal Brewing Public House in Lexington. It is a volunteer-run organization that runs on donations and all revenue brought into the group is spent on Stadium Experience items, member events and general upkeep.

How to Join The Pride

Annual membership costs $25. With a membership, supporters receive a member scarf, 2024 Discord access, and two custom stickers. You can purchase a membership at the group’s website and follow The Pride on Facebook and X.

The Briogáid

Who are The Briogáid

The Briogáid are an Irish/Celtic-inspired supporters club of FC Cincinnati. It is a non-profit, apolitical organization that was founded in 2016. According to their website, The Briogáid, translated as The Brigade, is “dedicated to cultivating an enjoyable matchday experience, creating lasting friendships, and contributing to our city and community — around, on, and even off the soccer pitch.”

Where Do The Briogáid Sit?

Like the other supporter groups, The Briogáid stands in The Bailey at TQL Stadium.

How Do The Briogáid Members Show Team Pride?

The Briogáid utilizes a Celtic crest that is orange, to show support for both the orange in the Irish flag and the orange in the FC Cincinnati color scheme. They start each match day at Sam Adams Taproom before joining the rest of The Incline Collective for The March. The Briogáid have their own scarf design as well.

How to Join The Briogáid

The Briogáid offers two types of memberships. Adult memberships cost $25 and provide inclusion in The Briogáid Slack, a ticket exchange, and offer the member bonus item and special event drawings. The junior membership costs $20 and offers a junior bonus item. Both memberships include a membership scarf and a Briogáid sticker. For more information, follow The Briogáid on Facebook and X.

FC Cincinnati Chants

There are numerous chants the group partake in, and they include lyrics such as “I’m Cincy ‘til I die,” “Win or lose we’re forever Orange and Blue” and “Cincinnati here we go, here we go, here we go.” For all the chants, check out The Incline Collective’s website.
