FC Cincinnati to 'orange out' with help from Bengals

CINCINNATI (FOX19) -

FC Cincinnati will face the Pittsburgh Riverhounds this Saturday in a 4 p.m. kick off at Nippert Stadium.

Several Bengals players will serve as honorary captains for the match – extending the Cincinnati vs. Pittsburgh rivalry to another type of football.

The club has officially declared Saturday's game an "orange out" with FCC inviting all their supporters to wear orange to match the team’s limited edition jerseys. The club has already presold over 10,000 tickets and is looking to draw at least 25,000 people to the match - that would beat the United Soccer League's record attendance of 20,497 that FC set in April against Louisville.

Serving as FCC’s honorary captains will be Giovani Bernard, Vontaze Burfict, Jeremy Hill, Kevin Huber, Adam Jones, Dre Kirkpatrick and Domata Peko, who will be introduced on the field prior to the start of the game.

Gates for Saturday’s game will open at 3 p.m.
