CINCINNATI, OH (FOX19) -

FC Cincinnati’s star goalkeeper Mitch Hildebrandt has signed with Atlanta United FC of the MLS, ensuring that he won’t return to Cincinnati for a third season.

Hildebrandt became the name and face of the new soccer movement in Cincinnati in just two years. He brought fans to their feet with every save as they would chant, “Mitch says no!”

Hildebrandt won USL goalkeeper of the year in his first season with FC Cincinnati and was a major reason why they made the playoffs in 2016 and 2017 with his 19 total shutouts during two seasons.
