For 21 years the Southern Ohio Adult Soccer Association has been proud to be home to the original MLS team, the Columbus Crew, and the highest level of soccer in the United States. From Day One we have worked to partner with Crew Investor/Operators, Management and Staff to grow the health of the sport we love. Together, in the heart of Ohio, we not only raised the country's first professional soccer-specific stadium, but we turned our home into the American Wembley, home to important and iconic matches in U.S. Soccer history.

The prospect of having the growing, financially-viable team we have devoted our hearts and wallets to wrenched away by Precort Sports Ventures (PSV) in the name of nothing more than an imagined greater profit margin is devastating. With full throat we support efforts to #SaveTheCrew!

We join #SaveTheCrew in calling on MLS Commisioner Don Garber and the other Investor/Operators of the League to negotiate a settlement by which PSV is allowed their desired soccer home in Texas and Columbus retains its beloved Crew with local Investor/Operators.
