Columbus Crew SC Waives Forward JJ Williams

February 20, 2020 - Major League Soccer (MLS) - Columbus Crew SC News Release

COLUMBUS - Columbus Crew SC today announced that the Club has waived forward JJ Williams. Williams played one season with Crew SC in 2019.

In his rookie season, Williams made seven regular-season appearances (three starts) for the Black & Gold. Additionally, Williams also spent part of the 2019 season on loan with USL Championship side Birmingham Legion FC.

"As we assessed our roster throughout this pre-season, given our depth at the forward position, we believed it would be difficult for JJ to find important and regular First Team minutes at the MLS level, which are critical for his development," said Crew SC President and General Manager Tim Bezbatchenko. "We want to thank JJ for his contributions to the Club during the 2019 season and wish him well."

Crew SC is currently in Tucson, Arizona participating in the 2020 Visit Tucson Sun Cup, which runs from February 15-22.

The Black & Gold begin the 2020 MLS regular season at MAPFRE Stadium against New York City FC, on Sunday, March 1 at 12:30 p.m. ET. Tickets to all matches on the Crew SC home schedule are available now online at or via phone.
