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.

Save The Crew Updates

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.”

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.

Saving Our Team and Saving Lives.

By Andrew Shepler

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).

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

Ten Thousand Pledges | Diez Mil Compromisos

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.
