Debuting in the 2020 spring, the Cincinnati Dutch Lions FC add an eSports team.
The team started with a competition in the Lower League eCup, an event started to bring lower division soccer teams together during the Covid-19 pandemic. The eCup included representatives from over 100 US lower league clubs representing 10 professional teams, 90+ amateur teams, and 20+ leagues represented. Competitors compete in EA Sports FIFA20 in either Playstation, Xbox, or PC.
The first member of CDLFC Gaming is Super Mega Ultras member Ryan Sparks. An avid gamer and massive local soccer fan, Ryan has been a CDLFC supporter for several years. Ryan chose to compete in the PC competition, and is one of eight PC competitors. Ryan was the eighth overall entry to the eCup, joining the competition within a day of announcing.
The second member of CDLFC Gaming is Super Mega Ultras member Alex Yersky. A school teacher by day, and a sports gamer by night, Yersky loves playing MLB The Show, FIFA, NHL, and NBA 2K. Yersky is a massive local sports fan, supporting all Cincinnati teams and can be seen regularly with his trademark Ultimate Warrior face paint.
