Centered in downtown Columbus, the Crew’s new stadium is expected to be a $230-million, 20,000-capacity venue on a 33-acre site. Beyond the stadium, the project includes a riverfront park, nearly 1,000 new residential units and office and commercial space.
The Crew expect to open play at the new ground during the summer of the 2021 MLS season.
