Columbus Crew SC supporters install first seats in new downtown stadium

Check off another milestone.

Columbus Crew SC hosted a season ticket member family earlier this week to witness the installation of their future seats at the New Crew Stadium. The soccer-specific venue, which is slated to open in July 2021, is expected to seat 20,000 and will have a grass surface.

Watch the video below for more from Brett Buchanan and his children, who got an early glimpse at their future vantage point. 

Columbus are expected to play part of their 2021 season at MAPFRE Stadium before debuting at their new ground, shifting home matches closer to the city’s urban core.

Crew SC are coming off an MLS Cup-winning season, earning a spot in the 2021 iteration of the Concacaf Champions League. More information about their stadium can be found here
