Dayton, Ohio – September 5 10:42 AM
“I just came up with a crazy idea…to go see the Crew in Montreal. Game’s at 3 on 10/6. That would be a blast. Can you free yourself up?”
This was the text my brother sent. My brain immediately started thinking through that weekend knowing that it would be a hefty road trip and I had some other things on the calendar. After serious thought I responded:

You know what’s so great about volunteering with Save The Crew? You get to hang out with friends, or strangers who become friends, while talking about your favorite thing, and introducing your favorite thing to new strangers, who might become friends someday. This past weekend, several of us brought the Save The Crew tent to the Columbus Italian Festival and did just that. A huge thank you goes to Joey DiNapoli who made all the arrangements for Save The Crew to participate. I hope you got to enjoy some cannoli, brother.

While recalling this story to share with you, it occurs to me that as we live each day we’re curating our life stories. Who knew, while we were living it, that one day it would be story worthy? To us, it was another day at Café del Mondo…
We were blessed, through my son Alex’s networking and determination, to be feeding the Crew – in many ways. Continue reading Feeding the Crew – Bruna
On a Nashville September Tuesday night, three of our very own took the field for the USMNT. Columbus is the home of Dos a Cero so it was only fitting that the Crew’s Zack Steffen, Gyasi Zardes, and Captain Wil Trapp took a bit of that history to Nashville to represent the USA in their clash against Mexico. It was a clean sheet for Zack, a scary tackle for Wil, and a 1-0 victory for the Red, White & Blue.

In that case, the Ohio Attorney General and City of Columbus are attempting to ensure Major League Soccer and Precourt Sports Ventures comply with Ohio Revised Code 9.67, also known as the Art Modell Law.

This may sound crazy and it may not be 100% accurate, but my friend Tim and I may be the furthest away Crew supporters as we both live and work in Bangkok, Thailand – 8,713 miles from Columbus.
I have been a Crew fan since the beginning of MLS. I was at the very first regular season game they ever played. I remember sitting in the closed end of the Horseshoe in Columbus and watching Dr. Khumalo, break someone’s ankles with a ridiculous move. I never had season tickets, but my college soccer team would attend at least two to three games a year and then I would go once or twice during the summers. Continue reading 8,713 Miles of Support – George

I almost feel like a fraud writing this as my story and experiences are relatively new compared to the fans who have been with the Crew since the beginning, and there are so many people who have loved the Crew for longer and better than I have. But I’m both happy and honored I get to share my story.

La Casa. Home
Bienvenidos a la casa. Welcome Home.
Last Saturday night, Columbus Crew SC fans welcomed home our beloved #J9, Justin Meram, who had recently been traded back to his home in Columbus. His family — both those related by blood and others by soccer fandom — was there to greet him in full force.

Pelotonia weekend 2018 was a memorable one for the eight members of the #SaveTheCrew peloton riding to raise money for cancer research.
Our adventure all started the Wednesday before the ride with a peloton meetup. While meeting up at #SaveTheCrew business ally Land Grant Brewing Company, we were met with multiple yells of “Save The Crew”. I also was stopped and asked where I could get the amazing bike jersey I was wearing (and to answer the question I’m sure you have, they were a special edition just for Pelotonia and aren’t being sold). Continue reading Saving Our Team and Saving Lives.
Save the Crew is about keeping the Columbus Crew where they belong: in Columbus. But keeping the Crew in Columbus is about more than just having a team to root for; it’s about understanding the role a club and its supporters play in their community. From the outset, Save the Crew has been motivated by a vision of the Crew and Crew Supporters as a force for good in our city and region.
As a part of that vision, Save the Crew is proud to offer fans two opportunities to support their team and their city this weekend: Continue reading Back-To-School Supply Drive & Community Assist
