Last night at Save The Crew business ally King Avenue 5, we released the much anticipated “Community Kit.” This kit is designed by Columbus supporters, for Columbus supporters everywhere. The reveal party was a limited engagement with a certain amount of people being allowed in (silly fire codes).
The kit was met with raucous approval by those in attendance and news of the design quickly went viral.

Once news began to trickle out from the event, fans from far and wide took to social media to express their approval about the new kit.
The rollout was supremely well done. The small touches on the jersey are really thoughtful. I like the full design more and more every time I look at it. Well done, everyone!! #SaveTheCrew https://t.co/FdDBTsSTdR

Some of the designers took to social media as well after keeping the project secretive for some time.
Helping design the Community Kit is one of the biggest honors I’ve had as a designer. Working with the @Save_The_Crew team has been an incredible source of inspiration. I never dreamed my work would be on the screen at a jersey reveal party…Thank you all. #savethecrew pic.twitter.com/Uc8RaP4uzV

Been off social media for the last five hours, and in that duration, I experienced firsthand that while they can try to steal the Crew’s future, they can never steal (or even understand) what has made it all so special. #SaveTheCrew
