Columbus Crew SC Hosts Minnesota United FC Tonight

September 23, 2020 - Major League Soccer (MLS) - Columbus Crew SC News Release

COLUMBUS - Columbus Crew SC faces Minnesota United FC at MAPFRE Stadium tonight, Wednesday, September 23 [7:30 p.m. ET / FOX Sports Ohio, FOX Sports GO (Stream) / 97.1 The Fan & 971TheFan.com (English), ColumbusCrewSC.com (Spanish)]. Tonight's match also airs locally on the radio in English on 97.1 The Fan and streaming online via "Listen Live" at 971TheFan.com, featuring Chris Doran broadcasting the contest. The club's official website, ColumbusCrewSC.com, is set to stream Spanish-language audio broadcast with Juan Valladares behind the microphone.

The match marks the first regular-season meeting between Crew SC and Minnesota United FC in 2020 and the fourth all-time regular-season meeting between the two since 2017. Crew SC is undefeated in its last 10 regular-season matches at MAPFRE Stadium, with a record of 7-0-3. The streak dates back to a 2-1 victory last year over the Montreal Impact (July 20). Additionally, the Crew has won all five of its regular-season matches at MAPFRE Stadium this year by shutout, becoming the first team in MLS history to achieve this feat.

On top of its 10-match undefeated streak at MAPFRE Stadium, the Black & Gold have only lost three matches - home or away - in their last 25 regular-season contests, the fewest losses by any MLS side over that span. This streak began with a 2-2 draw on the road last year against Chicago Fire FC (July 17), with the Crew posting a winning record of 13-3-9 over that span.

MAPFRE Stadium is once again set to host a limited number (1500) fans for Wednesday's match against Minnesota United FC. Supporters are reminded that while enjoying the match, when not actively eating or drinking, masks must remain on at all times and Experience Team ushers will be increasing the number of trips up and down the stands during match action, continuing to enforce this rule as it is critical to the success of hosting matches. All supporters are encouraged to view the Responsible Restart instructional video to review the matchday experience with health and safety initiatives.
