English club Bristol City make bid for Crew SC’s Zack Steffen:
Last week, Bristol City proposed a bid worth nearly $4 million for Columbus Crew goalkeeper Zack Steffan. On the news, Gregg Berhalter stated “we want to be a place where we get players and we develop them and we help them advance in their careers, wherever that may be. Whether that’s staying with us and improving and becoming a great player within this league or if it happens to be moving abroad, we are open to the idea of players coming here and developing and getting better and this is pretty much in line with that.” Despite the dollar figures offered for Zack, the bid has been rejected by the Columbus Crew. Safe to say Zack is a player the coach wants to keep around for a while.
Columbus Crew SC Ticket Membership Renewal:
The front office has started the process to auto renew season ticket memberships. The process seems to be business as usual. However, there is a small disclaimer stating: In the event the 2019 Crew SC Season is not played at MAPFRE Stadium, you will receive a refund of your Costs already paid for the 2019 Crew SC Season. If you are enrolled in the 3 Month Plan, 6 Month Plan or the Monthly Plan, then Crew SC will cancel your then-remaining payments towards 2019 Crew SC Membership Costs.

Austin USL team to reveal name, coach, and roster in early August for the 2019 Season:
The city of Austin has been without a USL team since 2015 (Austin Aztecs), this is about to change. Roberto Silva, general manager of the new team, has a vision for his USL team, and believes that they have the potential to bring a world-class soccer experience to Austin. They will play their games just outside the downtown area, in a 5,000 person stadium. It is yet to be seen what, if any, impact the USL will have on the chances of Austin getting an MLS team. Regardless, this move by the USL will surely add further complexity to the entire situation. One thing is for sure, there will be professional soccer in Austin next year.
Wil Trapp, “Wow!” The 93’ goal was the difference in the game, and possible the entire season. Gyasi Zardes added a brace, as the Crew took down Orlando City. Former Columbus Crew player Justin Meram did not attend the game, however, rumours are swirling on a potential transfer back to Columbus for the winger. Who wouldn’t want to see JM9 back at Mapfre?
Glory To Columbus
