FC Cincinnati Will Wow Fans With Skydive Start To Semifinal Playoff Game

Saturday, October 27th, 2018, Team Fastrax™ will add to the excitement of FC Cincinnati’s first semifinal playoff game with their fan favorite, patriotic American Flag demonstration jump. FC Cincinnati’s nail-biting playoff game last week was one for the books and this week’s is sure to be another great game.

At 4 PM, FC Cincinnati will kick-off against the New York Red Bulls II. Just before the game, right as the National Anthem starts to play, Team Fastrax™ will jump in with their majestic 2,000 sq. ft. American Flag, a red white and blue streamer and a skydiver trailing orange and blue smoke.

The show will be displayed on the scoreboard with the Team Fastrax™ live air-to-ground video feed, so spectators at Nippert Stadium can enjoy the experience on a whole new level.

“Team Fastrax™ is honored to be a part of such a momentous game for FC Cincinnati and thrilling day for Cincinnati sports fans,” commented John Hart, owner of Start Skydiving, and Founder of Team Fastrax™. “We always love it when our local teams do well. FC Cincinnati has done such a great job since their start in 2016, we’re incredibly proud.”

According to the USL website, FC Cincinnati advanced past the conference quarterfinals for the first time in its history with a 6-5 victory in a penalty shootout last Saturday against No. 8-seed Nashville SC after the teams had ended deadlocked in a 1-1 draw through 120 minutes of action. The result extended FCC’s undefeated streak to 24 games in league play, a run that began with a 2-1 victory against the Red Bulls II on June 2 when Cincinnati rallied to win at Red Bull Arena. FCC also recorded a 2-1 victory against New York at Nippert Stadium on July 21, although the Red Bulls II’s Tom Barlow almost found a stoppage-time equalizer for the visitors in that contest as he hit the crossbar with a late chance.

The top overall seed in the 2018 USL Cup Playoffs, FC Cincinnati has earned the right to host every round it plays at home at Nippert Stadium, up to and including the USL Cup Championship. Should FCC continue to advance, all games will be played at Nippert Stadium.
