( Milford ) - FC Cincinnati has released concept art of what it plans on its training complex to look like. On Wednesday, there was a ceremonial groundbreaking on the 24-acre project along Lila Avenue in Milford. During the ceremony, it was announced that naming rights will go to Mercy Health: the Mercy Health Training Center. Mercy Health had already agreed to be FCC's jersey partner when the team joins MLS in 2019. The $30 million development will house FC Cincinnati's offices along with facilities for the FCC Academy teams.
Also on Wednesday, Cincinnati City Council discussed a proposed land-swap deal to help build a parking garage for the team's soon-to-be constructed soccer stadium in the West End. The proposed deal would move Tri-State Wholesale Building Supply from the West End into Lower Price Hill. It's a project that Mayor John Cranley said he supports. However, Councilman Greg Landsman was on with 700WLW's Scott Sloan on Wednesday morning. He said he's concerned about the amount of public money that's being spent on the project. Council plans to vote on the land-swap in about two weeks.
