This unique facility makes the Crew outstanding in its field.. Soccer Central Crew Stadium is the nation's best soccer venue and the proof is in the programming. In only its third year, it has already hosted a MLS All-Star game, World Cup qualifiers and will be the site of this year's MLS Cup. Compared to the league's other facilities, (cavernous and largely empty NFL stadiums)...well there is no comparison.
Not Afraid to Be Yellow Don't give the building all the credit, though. Columbus has embraced this team right down to the color scheme. (Nowhere else do this many grown men wear yellow). Yet while crowds are large and loud, they're definitely not English. The only way a riot would break out here is if the concessionaires ran out on Buck-A-Brat night.
In Other News While it was built expressly for MLS, the Crew has not been the only beneficiary. Once again, the OSU spring football game will be played here. Crew Stadium has also hosted high school football and soccer and professional lacrosse.
US Soccer Headquarters.
The best place in the country to see professional soccer. From Columbus Crew games to US national teams. This is the place. Convenient access from I-71. Cheap ticket prices. Plenty of parking. Good concessions. Good merchandising.
