A Closer Look
Save The Crew believes that together, as a community, Columbus owns its soccer history, culture, and tradition. We are launching The Community Kit to represent the best of supporter engagement, passion, and culture. The jersey is meant to be OUR say, OUR reflection of how soccer is woven into the threads of Columbus’ fabric. The Community Kit is designed BY Columbus supporters, FOR Columbus supporters.
The design utilizes a traditional hoop stripe pattern, which is one of the oldest uniform patterns in the sport’s history. This choice is meant to reflect the long history of soccer being played in central Ohio, before any leagues were established in the area. It is also meant to function as a visual device when seen en masse on TV cameras. With our black and yellow colors, no pattern will call more attention to our cause, our passion, and our community like a stadium full of black and yellow hoop jerseys.
CREST: The main Save The Crew logo. Columbus’ skyline. An arch. A familiar shield with the year that Columbus entered top flight soccer as the league’s first team.
RIGHT SLEEVE DETAIL: The Save The Crew hashtag logo. The mark of our movement and the symbol that spreads it globally online.
THE JOCK TAG: Designates that this design was created by supporters, for Columbus supporters near and far.
THE NECK: RESPECT YOUR ROOTS. A call to action, taken from the giant Save The Crew tifo project that is now recognized around the world. A reminder of Columbus’ rich soccer history, which paved the way for all current top-flight soccer.
THE MAIN SPONSOR: Compton Construction, a growing central Ohio company, with a founder that also helped found an original supporter group.
LEFT SLEEVE SPONSOR: Safelite AutoGlass. The nation’s largest provider of vehicle glass repair and replacement services, which is proud to call Columbus home.
WATCH: The kit design was unveiled at a special supporters’ event via this video presentation.
The first round of orders of The Community Kit will ship in mid-March.
