Delay for new Columbus Crew stadium

New Columbus Crew stadium faces setback

Monday 24th June 2019

Columbus Crew’s new stadium has been set back, with the club admitting that it won’t be open for the start of the 2021 season as hoped.

The MLS side are building a new 20,000 seater stadium at a cost of $230m (£180m). It will replace the club’s current 20 year old Mapfre Stadium, which was the first dedicated soccer stadium to open in the US.

It is hoped that the new ground will now be ready for summer 2021, around halfway through the US football season.

The new stadium will be built in the city’s Arena District, close to the Olentangy River. It will be part of a bigger development which will also include shops, offices and a new riverfront park.
