Save The Crew Surpasses 10,000 Season Ticket Pledges with Project 2019

We are pleased to announce that we’ve collected over 10,000 pledges from fans who say they will attend multiple games via ticket packages as part of our Project 2019 initiative.

When Major League Soccer was established, the league determined which city would get the first clubs based on a commitment from the community to purchase season tickets. In 1994, Columbus was the first community to come together to achieve and surpass the set goal of 10,000 season tickets, making us the charter member of MLS.

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.

Saprissa Rain or Shine

On Tuesday, our Columbus Crew took the field for an international friendly versus Deportivo Saprissa

…or, at least, they tried to. Mother Nature had other ideas, sending rain and lightning to hover over MAPFRE Stadium for two and a half hours. Despite it being a weeknight and “only” an international friendly, thousands of dedicated fans came to the stadium to support the team. Many hung around the whole time, finding ways to amuse themselves while they waited.

By now, you may have seen how Saprissa stayed loose during the rain delay.
