Community Night with FC Cincinnati

Let’s show our support for FC Cincinnati and their powerful Japanese striker, Yuya Kubo, currently the only Japanese (and our only known Asian) Major League Soccer player in the United States.
Take advantage of discounted tickets for this event, courtesy FC Cincinnati, in one of several sections of TQL Stadium reserved for JASGC members, friends, and anyone who wishes to purchase tickets via this link.
(This discount is available through May 9 only. For tickets after that date, please contact Brandon Jones at FC Cincinnati.)
We are pleased to be able to offer this event in May, during Asian American and Pacific Islander Heritage Month. According to Wikipedia, the US Congress chose the month of May for two reasons: On May 7, 1843, the first Japanese immigrant arrived in the United States. And more than two decades later, on May 10, 1869, the “Golden Spike” was driven into the First Transcontinental Railroad, which made heavy use of Chinese labor. Since its inception, awareness of AAPI Heritage Month has grown considerably, with more events taking place this year than ever before.
