Crew to host New England Sunday in Game Two of Eastern Conference Semifinals

COLUMBUS, Ohio - The Crew take on New England in Game Two of their two-game, total-goal Eastern Conference Semifinal series on Sunday at 5 p.m. ET at Crew Stadium. Columbus trails the series 1-0 on aggregate and needs to win by one goal to put the series into an immediate 30-minute, sudden-death overtime period or by two goals to advance to the Eastern Conference Finals. If the teams are tied in total goals at the end of the 30-minute overtime, the game will be decided by penalty kicks.

Sunday's game will be televised nationally on ESPN2. The game can be heard in English on Eagle, 103.9, or online through TheCrew.com and MLSNet.com. It can also be heard in Spanish, on AM-1550.

If The Crew advance to the Eastern Conference Final, it will be one game and the Crew will host on Nov. 6 at 7:30 p.m. ET at Crew Stadium. The same overtime and penalty-kick procedure as the conference semifinals will be in place. MLS Cup is scheduled for Nov. 14 at 3:30 p.m. ET on ABC Sports at The Home Depot Center in Carson, Calif., with the same overtime and penalty-kick format.

Tickets for Crew home playoff games can be acquired at the Crew Stadium Box Office, at any area Kroger Ticket Master outlet, via phone at 614-431-3600 or online at TheCrew.com. Crew season ticket holders have Game One of the playoffs in their ticket packages.
