Columbus Crew History

Initially to be called the “Eclipse”, Columbus was one of the ten founding clubs of MLS, first announced in 1994. By 1995, American pro soccer (and football) Lamar Hunt was announced as the owner of the club. In 1995 the “Crew” name was unveiled, along with a cult-classic badge featuring three construction workers.

The club began play at the massive Ohio Stadium on the campus of Ohio State. But by 1999, they would help change the image of soccer in the USA forever. Crew Stadium was the first ever soccer-specific stadium in MLS and only the second in the entire country in the modern era after Charleston’s Blackbaud Stadium which opened shortly before.

The venue would become the template for a slew of soccer stadiums that came after it. It would also host many important USA games over the years.

The Crew would secure their first major title in 2002, the Open Cup. 2004, 2008, and 2009 had them winning the Supporter’s Shield. They’d hoist the MLS Cup in 2008 as well.

After that, the Crew became known more for controversy than anything else. In late 2017, news leaked about then-owned Anthony Precourt attempting to move the team to Austin, TX for the 2018 season. Locals and supporters rallied to “#SaveTheCrew” – and the effort succeeded, with Precourt getting an expansion team and new owners keeping the Crew in Columbus.

This came with a new downtown stadium as well, Field, which broke ground in 2019. While under construction, the Crew won their second MLS Cup in 2020.

In 2021, the club fumbled a rebranding effort, in which they intended to move forward simply as “Columbus SC”. Fans strongly rejected this move, and within weeks, the team backed down, reverting to the Crew name and altering the new club badge.
