Today, #SaveTheCrew releases an open letter to MLS Commissioner Don Garber regarding the future of the Columbus Crew SC.
Following Mayor Andrew Ginther’s announcement of a viable ownership group ready to purchase the team, and private land available downtown for a soccer stadium, it’s clear that a real opportunity exists for MLS to avoid the disaster of moving the league’s original franchise.
In the letter, #SaveTheCrew pledges our support to ensure the future viability and success of the league’s original franchise, by working with the league and team ownership to build upon the support that already exists in Columbus, taking the team to new heights.

MLS has a duty to its fans. It’s time for the league to step in to ensure the right choice is made with respect to its history, and its future. It’s time for the league to join in to Respect Our Roots, and give Columbus Crew SC an opportunity to have local ownership for the first time in team history.
With local ownership, the Columbus fanbase is dedicated to continuing our support for this team in this city. We are MASSIVE, and will support Columbus Crew SC for generations to come.
Glory to Columbus.

Our allies range from mom-and-pop shops, regional brands, and even international corporations.
