Cincinnati and World Cup 2026

By Nick Seuberling

On this week’s episode, we’re talking Cincinnati and the World Cup? Plus, FC Cincinnati announced the retirement of a fan favorite, plus that team down south moves on to the USL Final. Get downloading! No episode captain this week, unfortunately. If you’d like to wear the armband for an episode of Cincinnati Soccer Talk log onto CincinnatiSoccerTalk.com/support. Highlights from this week’s show. On this week’s show, we’re joined by Jackie Reau, the Board Chair of the Cincinnati Sports Commission. Jackie and the Commission are responsible for organizing the official bid to be a host city in the 2026 World Cup. Yes, THE WORLD CUP! Would you ever have thought two years ago we’d be saying Cincinnati and World Cup in the same sentence? It’s crazy how far this town has come in the soccer landscaped in just over 2 years. Remarkable. FC Cincinnati defender Paul Nicholson announced his retirement from soccer. He’s hanging up his boots and will join the coaching ranks eventually. Paul will go down as a club legend being part of the inaugural team in 2016. I know the 2017 season did not fare how he had hoped it would, but Paul will always be a legend in our eyes. Congrats on a great career Paul and best of luck in your retirement. Hopefully, we’ll see you again on the field soon Nico! We wrapped up the show talking USL Playoffs and Mitch Hildebrandt’s new beer. DON’T FORGET! CST records Cincinnati Soccer Talk LIVE each and every Tuesday night now at 8 PM ET.
