Columbus Crew Open The 2017 Season

Columbus Crew Open The 2017 Season

After record setting attendance last year, Columbus Crew SC is heading into the new year with some new ideas. The 17' season starts this March with an opening match against the Chicago Fire. The home match begins at 2 p.m. at Mapfre Stadium and on the tail of recent announcements by the team involving its new roster, should be an exciting start to the new season.

The Soccer Club signed several new midfielders in the last month, all within just a few days of each other. It seems that 25 year old Mohammed Abu, 20 year old Christian Martinez, and 20 year old Aluchi Obinwa will all be rocking Black and Gold this year. You may recognize Martinez, as the young player made a few appearances on loan last season, but can now call Columbus his permanent home.
