HOW ACQUIRED: Signed on July 5, 2019.
Room is an experienced goalkeeper who joins the Crew after a breakout 2019 Concacaf Gold Cup tournament with the Curacao national team, where he helped them reach the knockout stage for the first time. Room will likely get a legitimate shot to replace the departed Zack Steffen as Columbus' No. 1.
INTERNATIONAL: Has made 30 appearances for the Curacao national team. In addition to appearing in the Concacaf Gold Cup in 2019, he won the final Caribbean Cup with Curacao in 2017, winning the Caribbean Cup Golden Glove for his performance in that competition.
OUTSIDE MLS: The Netherlands-born player had previously played entirely in that country, for Vitesse, Go Ahead Eagles and PSV Eindhoven.
