Louisville City FC is hosting its first international friendly on Wednesday, June 21, when Germany’s FC Kaiserslautern visits Lynn Family Stadium.

FC Kaiserslautern, a storied and decorated club from Rhineland-Palatinate, has established a United States following over the years due to the team’s proximity to the United States Ramstein Air Base.

"This will certainly be a great new experience for everyone involved,” said FCK’s managing director, Thomas Hengen, in a press release. “Due to the large number of Americans who live in the region around Kaiserslautern, we at FCK have always had a great connection to the United States. It is something very special for us to travel to the USA and represent German soccer.” 

The pregame Fan Zone will feature a $2 bratwurst and beer happy hour starting at 6:30 p.m., and, when the gates open at 7 p.m., German-style beer will be available in collectible steins, while some concession stands will have specials such as a schnitzel sandwich.

Tickets are currently on sale, with seats starting at $16. Kickoff is at 8 p.m.
