About Historic Crew Stadium

The first ever soccer-specific stadium in Major League Soccer

Our History

Previously serving as the home of the Columbus Crew from 1999-2021, Historic Crew Stadium opened its doors on May 15, 1999, to a sellout crowd for a match against the New England Revolution.

In 2008, the venue added a permanent stage in the North End, allowing up to 27,000 fans to take in festivals, concerts, and other marquee events. In 2010, Stadia Magazine named it the world’s most influential Stadium of the decade.

Today, the Stadium is home to the Columbus Crew 2 of MLS NEXT Pro, in addition to hosting concerts, sporting events, and other programming.
