FC Cincinnati's 2-0 win against Toronto FC on Saturday night was the team's first at TQL Stadium since it debuted on May 16. The club had gone 0-4-5 since the soccer-specific stadium opened.

When the final whistle blew, the players' response was genuine and heartfelt, and they made it a point to share the long-awaited moment with their supporters.

FC Cincinnati still has an uphill battle to reach the Audi 2021 MLS Cup Playoffs for the first time, with 12 games remaining — seven of those are at TQL Stadium — and 11 points below the Eastern Conference playoff line.

“This is a massive result for us, something we needed for a long time,” left-back Ronald Matarrita said. “It’s just the first step. We are going to keep going forward and build from this and move on to the next one.”
