If there is even a remote possibility that there could be an MLS franchise playing on campus at UC, anyone who can't see how gigantic of a benefit that would be to UC is simply being obtuse. You may not enjoy soccer, but the future students at UC do and if they could attend MLS games on their campus that would be amazing.

IF FCC gets into the MLS, the contract states the numbers will be re-figured. Atlanta United is paying Georgia Tech $45,000 rent per game, a $275,000 fee for the locker rooms, $350,000 to alter the field, giving GT $2 from all ticket sales and splitting concessions.

The end zone isn't terrible as long as Mike Bohn does something in the cutouts. Leaving them empty during football games is the worse possible thing you can do.

Call me crazy, but couldn't they add some temporary bleachers or seating for football games and have that be the designated place for the band?
OR
Find some furniture store to be the "official furniture sponsor" of bearcat football. Add then throw in a sectional or just some couches and call it premium upgraded seating for a contest winner?

Have you looked at the cut outs? Sitting on a sofa in that space would likely give a great view of a brick wall next to you when you look toward the north end of the stadium. I guess you can put portable stands in those spaces, but that blows the ruse of player safety.

Exactly. I think the benefits from the arrangement as is are incredibly obvious and compelling but if they end up in MLS and play at Nippert that would be an enormous get for the University.

Money is one thing, but like Mark and others continue to point out, exposure is something that is tough to measure, but it would be immense by any measure IF FC Cincy were to make it to the MLS. The same way that sports serve to keep alumni engaged and donating dollars, FC Cincinnati gives people, government and business another huge reason to care about the university.

Again, yes it is still a big IF as far as FC Cincy going to the MLS and still playing in Nippert, but when you really look at what UC is facing as far as all of the realignment BS goes, it is a real possibility that UC football won't be around in a decade or two. It's a great gamble with huge upside and very little downside.

If it's such a huge "if", again, why not wait until they get in and see if they can actually play at Nippert long term before messing with the stadium?

They would have to keep the band together, but it isn't a bad idea. You'd have half of the band before the wall, and half above. Still leaves the other side open though.

Interesting, how do these numbers compare to UC's deal with FCC?

Anyone?

Anyone?

Bueller?
