Home Opener Cincinnati Dutch Lions FC against River City Rovers, Kick off by Ruud Gullit

Cincinnati, May 8 2014 – The Cincinnati Dutch Lions FC is playing the River City Rovers this Friday at 7.00pm. The game is the first ever of the Cincinnati Dutch Lions FC in the USL Premier Development League and will also feature an exciting half time event with Cincinnati Bengals kicker and UC graduate Kevin Huber competing in a “kick the crossbar contest” against Columbus Crew/Dayton Dutch Lions FC player (and former XU player) Matt Walker, former (2x) Best Player of the World Ruud Gullit and some local soccer talent from several soccer clubs from the Cincinnati area. Assistant Coach Robert Maaskant and Director of Soccer Operations Asher Mendelsohn of the Columbus Crew will also be present at the event.


Head Coach Terry Nicholl commented on the start of the season: “Coach Alan and I are looking forward to blending the international talent. We have experience from Europe, young Brazilian ball artistry, American collegiate energy and talent, it is a pleasure to coach such a combination.”


Assistant Coach Alan Grothaus added: “I am excited to get to see our Cincinnati Dutch Lions FC team in a game. We have a nice mix of local players, regional college players and international players. They all have different talents, but they are also players that will need to come together quickly as most of them are just returning from college. We hope to possess the ball and create an attacking team that will win as well as entertain the crowd. And I can’t wait to meet Ruud Gullit! He is my generation’s Messi or Ronaldo.”


The game is played at Xavier Soccer Complex (Corcoran Fileld). Since the stadium only has several hundred seats we recommend that you buy your tickets now and come early for an evening with great soccer and entertainment.
