Crew fans hopeful for teams future
COLUMBUS, Ohio —
The black and gold were back in action, and fans couldn’t be more excited.
Saturday evening, The Columbus Crew kicked off a two-day match against the New England Revolution.
Lauren Juarez and her husband are in the bleachers for every game.
They want the team to remain in Columbus not only for them, but the son they’re expecting.
“I’ve played soccer all my life and I’m excited to share it with my husband and my future baby that’s due next month” said Juarez.
While the teams owners have discussed moving the Crew to another city, fans are confident they’ll remain in central Ohio.
“We just need more community support but we have the whole Save The Crew movement, and everybody’s rallying together, so we’re going to Save The Crew”’said Cassandra Faris.
This week the Crew’s owners along with major league soccer, filed a motion to throw out the states lawsuit preventing them from finding another home in a new city.
Until a final decision is made on the team’s future, fans won’t give up. “We still need to get more people out here, get more fans” said Crew fan Mark Kaethow.
