The Columbus Crew are battling for an MLS Cup this upcoming season. Along with an improved defensive core, the 2012 acquisitions of Federico Higuain and Ethan Finlay along with head coach Gregg Berhalter has given Crew fans plenty to get fired up about for the 2015 season.
With their distinctive yellow and black uniforms, storied tradition and a history of turning things around in a hurry, the Columbus Crew are one of the most exciting teams in Major League Soccer.
One of the original 10 Major League Soccer teams in the inaugural 1996 season, the Columbus Crew were founded by visionary sports magnate Lamar Hunt. In the eighteen years since then, the Crew have racked up three Supporters Shields, one MLS Cup and helped usher in a tidal wave of soccer enthusiasm in the US by becoming the first team to build a soccer-specific stadium.
After playing their first few seasons in the cavernous Ohio Stadium, Columbus Crew Stadium was the first soccer-specific stadium ever built by an MLS team, and with one of the most intensely loyal fan bases in the league, Columbus Crew games are among the best sporting events you'll ever see.
Watch one of the most exciting teams in the MLS take the field as they try to get back to the playoffs.
