On this week’s Cincinnati Soccer Talk podcast we take a stroll down Cincinnati soccer memory lane. Remember the Cincinnati Silverbacks professional indoor soccer team? We spend the episode reminiscing about the glory days of professional indoor soccer in the Queen City with special guest Rich Neumann, the former President of the Cincinnati Silverbacks. If you’re curious to know how that team came about, Rich fills us in on all the details in this week’s episode.
Captaining our podcast this week is Jesse Gill! Thank you Jesse for supporting our show! If you’d like to become the captain of an episode, support our show today at CincinnatiSoccerTalk.com/support.
Brad, Bryan, Yosief and I relieve some of our fondest memories of going to Cincinnati Silverbacks games in the Cincinnati Gardens and The Crown (now US Bank Arena).
Rich Neumann joins the program and tells us some great stories on getting the franchise started. He also talks about some of his unique memories of running the team, from player purchases to roster and gameday operations. Based on his stories it sounds like he had his hands full. Rich now spends his time working with minor league sports to build new stadiums. The former Silverbacks president is proud of what FCC has achieved but he doesn’t think FC Cincinnati has a chance to get into MLS unless they can build a soccer specific stadium.
MLS Cup was this past weekend and we recapped the big match. Congratulations to the Seattle Sounders who won MLS Cup without registering a single shot on target.
The CST gang played some trivia this week and gave away a Cincinnati Silverbacks t-shirt courtesy of CincyShirts.com. Thanks guys for providing the shirt!
