Crew Supporters Union Scarf

Welcome to the most magical week of the year, Crewsmas Week! Here’s a few things you should know ahead of this weekend’s festivities.

CREWSMAS EVE PARTY

Friday, March 11, 6-11pm
Fourth Street Patio Bar & Grill
Facebook Event 

Crewsmas Eve

Crewsmas Eve

Join us Friday night before the first home match for our 9th annual Crewsmas Eve party at Fourth Street.

Crewsmas Eve began as an informal gathering of friends the night before the Crew’s first home game. Eight years later and in it’s fifth year at Fourth Street Bar, it’s an official event of Crew Union and even recognized by the club. Old friends reminisce and new friends are made in a joyous celebration of the new Crew season. We’re still working some final details, but this year’s event promises to be another “can’t miss” affair.

The Crewsmas Eve Party is open to all Columbus Crew fans and supporters.

Crew Union will have membership packages available for purchase.

A special thanks to our partners Fourth Street Bar & Grill for helping make our Crewsmas Eve Party possible.

With kickoff at 7:30pm we expect the tailgate to be going strong by 3pm, maybe earlier. We’ll have match tickets available to pick up as well as 2016 memberships. If you want to get started even earlier Fourth Street will be opening in the morning for EPL. Food wise the Ole Farts are back for the annual Crewsmas Chili cook-off. They’ll will be doing 3 or 4 kinds of Chili and if you have a favorite recipe you want to share bring it along, the more the merrier. As always any sides are welcome but not a requirement to come over and enjoy the food. So grab some friends, come on over to the tailgate, share a beverage or three with friends old and new and get ready to take on Toronto. (there will be a vegetarian choice with the chili).

Our partner North High Brewing is back for another year as Crew Union will be offering up free beer for members at all tailgates starting at Crewsmas!

All of the supporters groups will be marching into the stadium so that our presence is felt by the players during warm ups.  The tailgate will end around 6:30pm and the march will begin at 7pm.

All tickets and membership must be picked up by 6:30pm.  At 6:30pm tickets purchased through Paypal will be taken to Will Call and any tickets which were reserved, but not paid for will be released for general sale.

After the game, head on over to 4th Street Bar to hopefully celebrate another Crewsmas Day Victory.

MLS CUP TICKETS

UPDATED

Members,

Crew Union originally was not going to make MLS Cup tickets available until 11/30 when MLS Cup in Columbus was a reality, but due to the stage opening up, we wanted to give you all a chance to know exactly what you can purchase from us so that you can purchase MLS Cup tickets through other means.  We have a very limited number of tickets and although we would like to accommodate everyone’s needs, it’s just not going to be possible.

Earlier in the week we made tickets available to our Season Ticket Members.  The window for that has closed.  All remaining MLS Cup tickets allocated to Crew Union will be distributed via a lottery to 2015 Crew Union Members. The lottery draw will take place this evening and all 2015 Crew Union members will be entered into the drawing. The members selected in the draw will be notified by email tomorrow.  You will have an opportunity to reserve 1 ticket which are $40 each.  On 11/30 if MLS Cup is in Columbus, you will be sent an invoice to pay for the tickets.  All tickets are pick up only and must be picked up at the tailgate 12/6.

If you are not selected for tickets, we apologize, we value all members and wish we had 1 ticket to give to everyone.  However, stage tickets are still readily available which you can purchase at the Mapfre Stadium Ticket Office on Monday.

Glory to Columbus!!!
