  • Columbus Crew SC is an American professional soccer club based in Columbus, Ohio which competes in Major League Soccer. It is one of the ten charter clubs of MLS, having competed in the league since its inception. The Crew were owned by Lamar Hunt, who also owned the Kansas City Chiefs, Kansas City Wizards, and Dallas Burn until his death in 2006, when his son Clark Hunt took ownership of his sports properties. In 2013 Hunt's majority stake in the club was sold to Anthony Precourt and Precourt Sports Ventures. Crew SC currently plays its home games at Columbus Crew Stadium, the first professional soccer-specific stadium ever built in the United States, with a seating capacity of 20,145 as of the 2013 season. From 1996 to 1998, the Crew played their home games at Ohio Stadium on the campus of the Ohio State University. Crew SC has won five major trophies: MLS Cup 2008, the 2004, 2008, and 2009 Supporters' Shields, and the 2002 Lamar Hunt U.S. Open Cup. Crew SC won the 2002 Open Cup by defeating the Los Angeles Galaxy, 1–0, at Columbus Crew Stadium. Crew SC then won its first MLS Supporters' Shield in 2004 in a tie-breaker over the Kansas City Wizards.
