As 2020 MLS Cup Champions, the Columbus Crew have emerged as a force in Major League Soccer, making it one of Central Ohio's most popular sports attractions. The team plays in a brand-new stadium in the Arena District, Lower.com Field, bringing all three of Columbus' professional sports teams to the district.
Lower.com Field opened July 3, 2021 and the 20,000-seat stadium will be part of a larger mixed-use development behind Huntington Park, baseball field to triple-A affiliate of the Cleveland Guardians, the Columbus Clippers. Unique features of the new stadium include a continuous wraparound roof, a 360-degree concourse, event space, a 3,400-capacity standing section — along with two patio decks and a “Nordecke Beer Garden” (a first for Major League Soccer) — and a 5,000-square-foot brew hall that will also be open on non-match days. Sports aficionados can support local while cheering on the hometown team by grabbing food and a drink from one of the Columbus-based vendors inside the stadium. There are also plenty of pre- and post-game options near the stadium to get you hyped up for the match.
Get your soccer scarf ready, rest your voice and check out their schedule for tickets to an upcoming game. You will feel like part of the action and won’t be disappointed.
