Save The Crew at Pelotonia

By Andrew Shepler

Saving the Crew is about more than soccer. It is also about community and love for our amazing city. It is about coming together in a time of turmoil and working together to better our city and community.

As a supporter of the Crew since 1996, it is hard to remember a time in Columbus without them. It also is hard to imagine what soccer would be like in Columbus if the team had never existed. From being the spiritual home of US Soccer, to Dos a Cero victories and multiple MLS cups and All-Star games hosted in town, having the Crew here in our city has helped put Columbus on the map internationally.

Soccer for All of the Community

Soccer has always been a game for the people. Anyone is able to take a ball, bought or handmade, and get friends together to play. This accessibility and ease of entry has made it the world’s game. It forges strong connections between people, bringing together individuals and communities, and most importantly, it’s fun and entertaining. You can go anywhere in the world and talk about a soccer match with a local or find a pickup game to play in.

STC Night with Cleveland SC

Making connections and creating relationships in the greater community is what Save The Crew is all about. Cleveland SC were gracious hosts last Sunday for a special Save The Crew Night at Don Shula Stadium on John Carroll University campus. Pizzaz On The Circle welcomed fans for pre-match festivities, and the good times carried over to the stadium, where the players were sporting limited edition Save The Crew pre-match tops during warm-ups. They were excited to show their support and had fun posing for photos.

SaveTheCrew – Hardest Working Weekends

For many people in Columbus, Saturday and Sunday are the weekend. Days off. Days to relax, reflect on the week, and enjoy time with family and friends.

For #SaveTheCrew, weekends are not days off, but days on. Our team is fighting to keep our team 7 days a week, and this past weekend was no exception.

On Saturday morning, several volunteers woke up early to spread the world to Columbus’ Hispanic community at the Westland Flea Market on W. Broad Street. Volunteers raffled off tickets to an upcoming game and shared information about Project 2019 and all the latest news from SaveTheCrew — todo en español.

Telling Everyone We Know at the Columbus TacoFest

One of the mottos of the #SaveTheCrew from its inception has been: Tell everyone you know.

On Saturday, May 19, volunteers from the movement did just that.

They also told a few more that they don’t know. (Few, meaning, thousands.)

#SaveTheCrew volunteers woke up early to set up a tent and worked all day through the hot sun and summer storms at the First Annual Columbus Taco Fest held downtown at Genoa Park.The taco lines were long and the festival was even shut down momentarily due to storms passing through, but that didn’t sway the enthusiasm of the volunteers, who were eager to spread the word about the team and Project 2019.

Project 2019 – Season Ticket Pledge

Throughout our lives, we pledge allegiance to many things. To our country, to our family, and now, fans of the Columbus Crew SC will have the opportunity to pledge their loyalty to supporting the team in 2019.

On Thursday, #SaveTheCrew announced the launch of Project 2019.
