SaveTheCrew – Hardest Working Weekends

For many people in Columbus, Saturday and Sunday are the weekend. Days off. Days to relax, reflect on the week, and enjoy time with family and friends.

For #SaveTheCrew, weekends are not days off, but days on. Our team is fighting to keep our team 7 days a week, and this past weekend was no exception.

On Saturday morning, several volunteers woke up early to spread the world to Columbus’ Hispanic community at the Westland Flea Market on W. Broad Street. Volunteers raffled off tickets to an upcoming game and shared information about Project 2019 and all the latest news from SaveTheCrew — todo en español.

Respect Your Roots: The Making of a Massive Mural

By Chris Blain

I can barely remember a time when soccer and art didn’t dominate my entire life. When I was 5 years old, the announcement that Columbus, Ohio, would be awarded the first Major League Soccer franchise sent my household into a full-blown soccer frenzy. I’ve been attending matches since the Columbus Crew started their inaugural season in Ohio Stadium, and have continued supporting the team throughout my entire life.

El fútbol más allá del cielo – Soccer beyond the sky

Editor’s Note. What follows is the story of how soccer inspired Silvia C Rodriguez, a Chihuahua, México transplant to Columbus and author of bilingual Children’s Books, to write a book about the World Cup. It is presented first in Spanish and then in English.

Seis años atrás, al mudarnos al estado de Ohio, lo primero que mi esposo dijo fue: –¡La ciudad tiene equipo profesional de fut! ¡Quiero ir a todos los partidos!

En un corto tiempo éste popular deporte se ha convertido en parte de nuestra vida cotidiana, ahora les explico el por qué:

Taking Action with a Massive Road Trip

By Chelsey Elsey

The 2018 Columbus Crew season does not resemble in the slightest any prior Crew season.  Since last October, Crew fans have wrestled with the possible demise of something we dearly love.  Due to these unfortunate circumstances, my family and I felt obligated to take an away game trip this season.  My husband, Tim, said that we owed ourselves a long overdue trip. He was correct.

Massive Memoir – A New Fan from the #419

by Garrett Searight

I’m not a soccer guy. In fact, I’m the least soccer-y guy you’ll find. I legitimately feel bad for people in Europe and South America that think soccer is the most exciting sport on the planet.

I don’t use terms like stands, supporters, keepers, boots, pitch, etc…this is America, for Pete’s sake! Continue reading Massive Memoir – A New Fan from the #419

Massive Memoirs – Heidi

Yo soy Columbus, este sentimiento no lo puedo parar…

by Heidi Baxter

Upon hearing this simple song line, I was hooked. I am Columbus, I can’t stop this feeling…. It was the spring of 2012 when Nordecke seemed like a dream team of fans to me. And there I was, in the thick of it.

La Turbina Amarilla, one of the supporters groups of the Columbus Crew SC, accepted me with arms wide open, grill hot as can be and laughs a minute. Never had I experienced soccer in Columbus with such raw passion.

Telling Everyone We Know at the Columbus TacoFest

One of the mottos of the #SaveTheCrew from its inception has been: Tell everyone you know.

On Saturday, May 19, volunteers from the movement did just that.

They also told a few more that they don’t know. (Few, meaning, thousands.)

#SaveTheCrew volunteers woke up early to set up a tent and worked all day through the hot sun and summer storms at the First Annual Columbus Taco Fest held downtown at Genoa Park.The taco lines were long and the festival was even shut down momentarily due to storms passing through, but that didn’t sway the enthusiasm of the volunteers, who were eager to spread the word about the team and Project 2019.
