COLUMBUS - The Columbus Crew is teaming-up with Columbus Commons (160 South High Street, Columbus) for a downtown viewing party tomorrow as the United States Men's National Team faces Belgium in a 2014 FIFA World Cup Round of 16 match.

The Columbus Bicentennial Pavilion LED screens and concert-quality audio are scheduled to pump out pre-match coverage beginning at 3:00 p.m. ET with the match beginning at 4:00 p.m. ET from Arena Fonte Nova in Salvador, Brazil.
