In the early 2000’s the state of Ohio had a Columbus Crew license plate, but due to lack of demand during the Crew’s “dark years” the plate was discontinued. During the 2012 season Crew supporters, lead by Crew Supporters Union, collected the necessary signatures to bring the plates back.
In February the Ohio BMV sent the above sample plate by the for approval. The new Columbus Crew plates can be purchased on oplates.com now. Of the $35 annual cost for the plates $25 will go to support Crew Soccer Foundation and the Greater Columbus Sports Council.
“This is yet another opportunity for our supporters to showcase their love for the club and take the Crew brand wherever they go,” said Crew President & General Manager Mark McCullers. “We appreciate the work that was put towards this project and are excited that it will benefit the Crew Soccer Foundation and the Greater Columbus Sports Commission.”
Thanks again to everyone who helped us collect signatures and signed the petition, this shows that together we can accomplish big things.
