A large FC Cincinnati banner of a winged lion, located on the southern end of the upper eastside deck at Nippert Stadium, was stolen overnight following the club’s inaugural home match against Charlotte Independence.

The theft, committed Sunday morning, was caught on camera and the club is asking that the banner be returned within 24 hours.

“Obviously there was a lot of excitement following the game and there were individuals who made a bad decision in stealing the banner,” said President and General Manager, Jeff Berding. “With that being said, we are asking that the banner be returned immediately. If it is returned within 24 hours, there will be no questions asked. However, if it is not, we will turn the matter over to UCPD and those individuals will be prosecuted to the full extent of the law.”

This is an advertisement. 
Those who have the banner are encouraged to return it to Nippert Stadium.

FCC is offering a reward for any information leading to the return of the banner. Anyone with information is asked to call UCPD at 513-556-1111.
