Beyond the Game: Crew SC gets first-hand look at Acura Performance Center
MARYSVILLE -- The Columbus Crew SC likes to think of themselves as a sleek outfit. They got up close with their sponsors Acura Performance Showcase for Honda and Acura on Tuesday.
First, the team toured the Performance Manufacturing Center Plant with members of the media joining the team on the tour.
"The craftsmanship that goes into those cars is incredible," Crew SC captain Wil Trapp told ABC-6 following the one-hour tour.
Following the tour, Crew SC hosted its training session for the day on-site, practicing in front of Honda and Acura associates and then signing autographs and interacting with associates. Crew SC President of Business Operations Andy Loughnane, Sporting Director and Head Coach Gregg Berhalter and players as well as Acura representative Hank Real were available at the conclusion of training.
