The head of the Columbus Partnership told 10TV Monday night that the Columbus Crew is announcing its intention to move the team to another city – possibly Austin, Texas.

Alex Fischer, the CEO of the Columbus Partnership, spoke with the Crew SC's ownership.

Fischer says if the city's efforts fail to keep the Crew here, all options will be on the table to work on finding another team to replace them.

Announced as one of the 10 founding members of the MLS in 1994, Crew SC played their first game April 13, 1996.
