Columbus Crew SC News Release

COLUMBUS - As the Columbus Crew start the 2024 MLS season at Field on Saturday at 2 p.m. against Atlanta United FC, the Crew will debut a variety of enhancements focused on their mission to deliver exceptional experiences for supporters on matchday and throughout the year.

Fans will enjoy the new amenities during Saturday's season opener, when the Crew will unveil the championship year on the south stadium façade commemorating their 2023 MLS Cup, the third in franchise history, while players, coaches and leadership will receive their championship rings during the pre-match celebration. Fans are encouraged to arrive early to ensure they can share in the full pre-match festivities.

Supporters attending Crew home games this season will enjoy new hospitality offerings, seating options, and concessions that elevate the already incredible atmosphere at Field.

Service and Amenities

Vivid Seats Experience Terrace: This spacious, semi-private space is located on top of the suite level, featuring beautiful views of Field. Ticket holders will have access to an all-inclusive hospitality space featuring food and beverage options, including a full bar. It can host a group ranging from 20 to 200 people.

Party Suite: The private, climate-controlled indoor space was added on the press level at midfield. It features one of the best views of Field at center pitch and is the only dedicated private space available on a game-by-game basis. Capable of hosting a group of up to 49 people, the hospitality space includes all-inclusive food and beverage, along with customizable upgrade options.

The Cenovus Energy Zone: Ticket holders can enjoy the action from spacious, private bay-style seating areas located atop Nordecke, the Crew's most passionate supporters.

Fans will have access to additional accommodations, including a dedicated premium VIP entrance in the West Lobby, and access to the club up to 60 minutes after every Crew match.
