Why do you take memberships?
Die Innenstadt is only as strong as its members. Members provide the life of the group.
How much is an annual membership?
Where does the money go?
Funds from membership help support everything from smoke bombs, scarves, and flags, to web hosting, charitable donations, and events. No money is sent to individuals as every board member is a volunteer.
So, what does the membership get me?
Membership will get you an exclusive "Die Innenstadt" scarf each year (and new for 2019: a keychain and drawstring bag as well). In addition to an instant immersion into a community made up of some of the most wonderful people in the city. Membership will also give you an invite to member-only events, first-access to buses we charter to away games, and the best home matchday pre-game party in town! We send emailed newsletters with events and pertinent information, and you will be added to our Slack team. Slack is a discussion forum where we talk about the team, exchange any available tickets for home games, announce tifo nights, coordinate road trips, and communicate in general with other members of Die Innenstadt.
Does membership get me into the games?
No. You must purchase a ticket separately through FC Cincinnati. If you want to sit with Die Innenstadt, the core of our members will be in general admission sections 131-135 called "The Bailey." The Bailey has been completely sold out to season ticket holders since the beginning of the 2018 season. While tickets in this section might pop up on the secondary market, there is a channel on our members-only Slack team where people can buy or sell tickets from anywhere in the stadium for no more than "face value," including Bailey tickets at $15 each.
Is there an age restriction?
No, anyone can become a member... But some events will be restricted to 21+ based on local laws. There may be some inappropriate language, so the youngest fans may not be the best suited, but all are welcome!
During away games, all ages will be allowed to watch at rhinehaus!
