Bienvenidos a la casa. Welcome Home.

Last Saturday night, Columbus Crew SC fans welcomed home our beloved #J9, Justin Meram, who had recently been traded back to his home in Columbus. His family — both those related by blood and others by soccer fandom — was there to greet him in full force.

Save The Crew Updates

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.

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).

Back-To-School Supply Drive & Community Assist

Save the Crew is about keeping the Columbus Crew where they belong: in Columbus. But keeping the Crew in Columbus is about more than just having a team to root for; it’s about understanding the role a club and its supporters play in their community. 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

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.

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.
