New Columbus Crew stadium to begin construction

Columbus Crew show off new stadium designs

Wednesday 2nd October 2019

Columbus Crew have revealed their updated plans for a new 20,000 capacity stadium in the downtown area of the city.

The MLS Eastern Conference side were taken over by new owners last year and fought off the threat of being relocated to Austin, Texas. The new owners have big ambitions for the Crew and have signalled their intent by starting work the new $230m development.

The new stadium features steep banking to ensure fans are close to the action, as well as a continuous concourse around the entire stadium which will allow fans to view the action from any angle. In an MLS first, the new ground will also include a supporters’ beer garden.

Columbus currently play at Mapfre Stadium which was the first soccer-specific ground to open in the US, back in 1999. This will be turned into a community sports park once the Crew move out.

It is hoped that the new stadium will be ready for summer 2021. More images can be found below:
