Red, White and Crew: How a shared affinity for the Columbus Crew became a cross country vacationing tradition

by Kevin Johnson

I began attending Crew games sporadically in the early 2000s. I took the plunge into the realm of season ticket holder in 2008. I shared my season seats with one of my best friends, Steve, until starting a family made finding time to commit to the Crew more difficult for him.

MONDAY RECAP: COMMUNITY UPDATE

Fellow Columbus Crew SC fans: Welcome to the next edition of our Monday Recap. Today, we have some special updates from the Save The Crew team, an update involving the ongoing litigation, and finally, the game recap.

Save The Crew Team Update

Project 2019 Campaign:

The next phase of the campaign to save our Columbus Crew has begun. In order to prove to potential investors that we (the fans) are dedicated to our team, we have launched an initiative called “Take the Pledge.”In 48 hours, we have gained over 5,000 signatures. These fervent Crew supporters hail from all over the world; from Columbus, to the islands of the Caribbean, and even Europe . Remember, the pledge is just the start to our campaign. It’s an important cog in the process to show that we can produce fruitful ‘business metrics’. The current ownership has had almost 5 years to try to get to 10,000 season ticket holders. We, the fans, did half of that in 48 hours (1).

Project 2019 – Season Ticket Pledge

Throughout our lives, we pledge allegiance to many things. To our country, to our family, and now, fans of the Columbus Crew SC will have the opportunity to pledge their loyalty to supporting the team in 2019.

On Thursday, #SaveTheCrew announced the launch of Project 2019. STC is taking pledges from fans who are committed to buying 2019 season tickets or a multiple match plan for the 2019 Columbus Crew SC season following the sale of the team to a new investor/operator. By completing a short form, fans can demonstrate the massive demand that we have for new ownership of our beloved team.

A Wedding Anniversary & Renewal of Vows Toast

by Hector Garcia

In January of 1996 my wife and I moved from Bloomington, Indiana to Caracas, Venezuela. We had been married for about three months, and were looking ahead to a lifetime together. In February of 1996 the Columbus Crew drafted Brian McBride with the first draft pick in MLS’ history. The Crew and its nascent supporter base, the soccer-loving people of Columbus, were too looking ahead to a lifetime together. My wife is from Ohio, so naturally we started following the Crew’s scores and standings every week in the Caracas English-language newspaper (there was only one, but it did carry the MLS boxscores), smiling with joy with every win, steeling for the next game with every loss, pondering the balance of the universe with every draw.

The Columbus Crew is Family

by Melinda Soderberg

How did I become a Crew fan? Where do I even start? I have grown up with the Columbus Crew, or in a sense, the Columbus Crew has grown up with me. I went from watching the team play in a college football stadium as a seven year old — unsure how soccer would sit with the Columbus community so heavily invested in Ohio State — to sitting at Columbus Crew Stadium in 2018, 22 seasons later. I was along for the ride with everything in between.

Party on the Pitch!

by Jen Dwyer

It was 2009 and we had been attending Crew games for the last 5 years. When we moved to Columbus with our 6 year old son, then “Crew Stadium” was a natural draw for us. The previous year, we had become Season Ticket Members and we really felt connected to this team and to this city.

For our son’s 12th birthday, we were looking for something different- cool- not ordinary (because when you’re 12 … it’s hard to find “cool” things to do for a party). We called our STM rep to ask if they did “birthday parties.” They did! He said they weren’t as busy in the Spring due to weather and not having many games. My son had a March birthday so that was perfect. We decided to have it in April, to give the weather more time to cooperate.

MONDAY RECAP: COMMUNITY UPDATE

Fellow Columbus Crew SC fans: Welcome to the next edition of our Monday Recap. Last Monday, I had a plethora of updates involving the ongoing litigation. Due to the certain events that  took place (motion to dismiss, City of Columbus Memo, and the question of constitutionality of the Modell Law), I will not discuss the case. This is simply because we need to wait to see what the courts have to say in regards to the latest motions set forth by both parties.
