Crew to Host MLS Business Summit September 10-12
COLUMBUS - The Columbus Crew today announced, in conjunction with Major League Soccer, that the 2013 MLS Business Summit is being held in Columbus September 10-12, 2013. For the second consecutive year, the Summit brings together representatives in every functional area from the League office and all member clubs to develop strategies and share best practices.
Participants will attend the U.S. National Team World Cup Qualifying match vs. Mexico at Crew Stadium - home of the three famed Dos a Cero U.S. victories - on September 10, surrounding the Business Summit events. Columbus has previously hosted other signature League events, including the 2000 and 2005 MLS All-Star Games and MLS Cup 2001.
"We are proud to have been selected once again to host the MLS Business Summit in Columbus," said Crew President & General Manager Mark McCullers. "It continues to be a strong endorsement from the League and we're honored that it recognizes all of the hard-earned positive momentum being enjoyed right now by both the Crew and the City of Columbus."
