Columbus Crew Player News

The Crew exercised the contract options on eight players from the 2018 roster and reached a new contract agreement with defender Lalas Abubakar. The Crew exercised the options of goalkeepers Jon Kempin and Ben Lungaard; defenders Alex Crognale, Connor Maloney, Gaston Sauro and Josh Williams; and midfielders Luis Argudo and Niko Hansen. The team continues to work with Argentine club Newell’s Old Boys to complete a deal for defender Milton Valenzuela. Unfortunately, the club declined options on goalkeeper Logan Ketterer; midfielders Ricardo Clark, Mike Grella and Cristian Martinez; and forward Adam Jahn. They will all be missed. In addition Crew goalkeeper Zack Steffen seems all but certain to complete a move to Manchester City, and may even be loaned elsewhere for the 2019 campaign. Continue reading Weekly Recap 11/28/18

D.C. United vs Columbus Crew:

Federico ‘Pipa’ Higuaín and the Columbus Crew conquered D.C. United in their first home playoff game at Audi Field. Higuaín, scored a goal in regulation, one in additional time, and also slotted home his penalty kick. The penalty kick finish was a very familiar scenario for Columbus, as we progressed in the playoffs last year after a win at Atlanta. Zack Steffen once again stopped multiple penalty kicks. What can’t he do? Some fans traveled to D.C. for the game, but back home, local pubs were at capacity as Crew fans celebrated the away victory. Save The Crew allies including Endeavour Brewing, Land Grant, Platform and more hosted watch parties for the playoff game. Hope to see you all back at these establishments next Sunday!

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).

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.
