Feeding the Crew – Bruna

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

2008 MLS Cup Anniversary:

As we know,  2018 marks the ten year anniversary of our first and only MLS cup victory. Goals from Ale Moreno, Chad Marshall, and Frankie Hejduk sealed the win for the Crew. On Saturday members from the 2008 championship team came to Mapfre to celebrate their anniversary. Players such as Gino Padula, William Hesmer, Frankie, and Duncan Oughton received their honors before running across the field to the Nordecke to celebrate – and to join in the “Save The Crew!” chants. These legendary players from Crew lore are a part of our club’s great history. Perhaps, in another 10 years we will celebrate the 2008 MLS Cup win AND the 2018 MLS Cup win. Save The Crew!

Earnie Stewart at Mapfre:

Earnie Stewart is the current general manager of the USMNT. He is in charge of finding a new head coach for the National team. As you have all heard, our own Gregg Berhalter leads the list of candidates for the job. Berhalter has been the head coach of Crew since the 2014 season. During his tenure, the team has appeared in one MLS Cup, two Eastern Conference Finals (winning one) and made three playoff appearances in four seasons. Gregg is well on his way on leading the Crew to a fourth playoff birth. Do you want to see Gregg take the opening as USMNT coach? Continue reading Monday Recap 9/24/2018

Black and Gold Supporters in Nashville

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.

KIPP Columbus

KIPP Columbus, “is a national network of free, open enrollment college preparatory public schools dedicated to preparing students in underserved communities for success in college and life”.  The kids from Ms. Ryal’s 9th grade soccer came out to Mapfre on Saturday to see the team. Ms. Ryal’s team gathered at the Lamar Hunt statue before kickoff. This is a team YOU not only helped fund but also then sent to this match. We appreciate the Community Assist ticket donations and look forward to sending even more kids to see our Columbus Crew win.

8,713 Miles of Support – George

By George Weber

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.

New England Stands with #SaveTheCrew:

It is very well known that the majority of MLS fans do not want to see the Crew leave Columbus. Signs of solidarity can be seen all over the nation, #SaveTheCrew signs , scarves, & banners have adorned
stadiums around the globe all year. Fan’s of the New England Revolution have taken things a step further by stating their support in a Monday article. The writer, Mathew Bluestein stated “Getting rid of them would not be good for the sport or the identity of MLS. Soccer should not be run with a business mentality, it’s not like other sports. The fans give their all for the club, and it’s up to the owner to give just as much back. If attendance is bad, the owner is not doing something right. It’s up to the owner to fix it, not pack everything up and relocate the team. With that being said, I speak for all of New England and for all of us here at BSE when I say that we stand with you Columbus. You would fight for us, so we fight for you. Together, we’ll #SaveTheCrew.”

Massive Memoir – Elizabeth’s Family

By Elizabeth Coy

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.

1) Save the Crew, Stadium Renderings:

Last Monday, the entire Save The Crew movement reached new heights. The team released their official renderings for the stadium at a Ten Thousand Pledges celebration with special guest, Dante Washington! This could be the future home of Columbus Crew SC and we hope it spurs creativity and conversation around what can be possible. The stadium sits just west of the Huntington Ball-Park, in the Arena District. These renderings are best viewed directly. Further analysis can also be found at NBC 4, ABC 6, 10TV, and Dispatch.

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
