Cincinnati, April 22 2014 – The opening night for the Cincinnati Dutch Lions FC on May 9 at 7.00pm will feature an exciting half time event!

Assistant Coach Robert Maaskant and Director of Soccer Operations Asher Mendelsohn from the Columbus Crew will also be present at the event.


The game vs River City Rovers is the first game of the Cincinnati Dutch Lions FC in the USL premier Development League. The game starts at 7.00pm at Xavier Soccer Complex.

Coaches Terry Nicholl, Alan Grothaus and Jack Hermans have carefully selected their team consisting of several local top players combined with some international talent and experience from Brazil, Paraguay and he Netherlands.


President Mike Mossel commented on the opening game: “I believe our opening night has all the ingredients for a great night. Not only for soccer fans but also for families that are looking for an evening filled with entertainment. Besides showcasing some really good soccer players we are bringing top athletes together with local soccer players for a unique “kick the crossbar contest”. I can’t wait to see Xavier Soccer Complex completely packed for our first game.”
