German side Hoffenheim partnering with FC Cincinnati of MLS

SINSHEIM, Germany (AP) — Bundesliga club Hoffenheim is forming a partnership with Major League Soccer side FC Cincinnati to expand its international network.

The German club said on Friday the agreement “is due to be signed shortly” and it will aid Cincinnati’s sporting development.

“We are striving for a wide-ranging partnership that will not only focus on the football academies and the mutual exchange of innovations, but will also bolster our companies with a brand and image exchange,” Hoffenheim managing director Peter Görlich said.

Former Hoffenheim players Jürgen Locadia and Joseph-Claude Gyau play for the MLS team. Cincinnati began MLS play last year.
