The 2012 season has been one of the most eventful in team history. Not only were there some major veteran player acquisitions to the roster, but the addition of quality young players through the draft and the Crew Soccer Academy system have helped us continue to add important pieces to our core group of players. It has been equally active off the field, as well. Since launching the Crew’s “Goal 10K” initiative to reach and sustain a base of 10,000 season ticket holders last September, along with publicly identifying the organization’s other two main objectives – to acquire a new jersey sponsor, and sign a stadium naming rights partner – we have made significant progress in achieving these goals. Barbasol signed on as the Crew’s new multi-year jersey sponsor, and we have made great strides toward Goal 10K by growing our season ticket base by nearly 30 percent. We have also received approval to construct a marquee tower sign north of Crew Stadium that will increase the value of a stadium naming rights partnership and position us better to secure this critical sponsorship. With this kind of momentum, combined with an important US Men’s National Team 2014 FIFA World Cup Qualifier against Jamaica on September 11, and the continued support of Columbus Mayor Michael Coleman in helping the Crew accomplish these goals, the future is exciting. The Crew organization and the Hunt family are deeply committed to the success of this region, and proud of the nearly $25 million in annual direct spending the Crew enterprise contributes to Columbus. We still have a lot of hard work to do, but there couldn’t be a better time to get involved with the Crew. Dare To Be Massive!
