Today, Columbus Crew SC released striker…er, striking new renderings of the hard-fought downtown stadium project.
The 20,000-capacity venue is slated to feature four stands with various seating features, a wraparound roof (to provide protection over each stand and amplify the noise), a closed seating bowl, a 360-degree concourse, and an events space.
For the spirited Nordecke fans, the new downtown stadium will offer a 3,400-capacity standing section with two patio decks and a designated “Nordecke Beer Garden”—the first supporters’ beer garden in Major League Soccer.
And on non-match days, customers can patronize the stadium’s 5,000-square-foot brew hall with “open views to the entrance plaza and downtown to support a variety of local community events,” according to a fact sheet from the team per Columbus Business First.

“Our goal is for Crew SC’s new downtown stadium to be among the top sports facilities in the nation,” said Crew SC President and General Manager Tim Bezbatchenko. “We see our new home as becoming an integral part of Columbus’ downtown. Because of this, we are building a modern facility that is rooted in the culture created by our supporters in order to provide an experience that champions soccer in Columbus. The investments and input from The Haslam and Edwards Families have helped shape renderings for a stadium that will become a modern icon in our region and across the country.”
The Crew will host a groundbreaking event on October 10 with music from DJ AXCESS and food trucks. The stadium is expected to be completed by July 2021.
