Save The Crew has released renderings for a downtown Columbus stadium.
The group says the design is the result of conversations with the city’s soccer community with the goal of “designing the optimal fan experience in downtown Columbus.”
The renderings show the stadium situation on a parcel of land currently owned by Nationwide Reality on the west end of Nationwide Boulevard, according to Save The Crew.
The stadium will sit on the bank of the Olentangy River and a practice facility would be next door on land currently owned by Schottenstein Real Estate Group, which was previously offered to Crew SC for a downtown stadium.
“A short walk from Huntington Park and Nationwide Arena, the move to the Nationwide Realty site would situate each Columbus professional sports team within a few blocks of each other in downtown Columbus, fulfilling the original vision for the Arena District,” Save The Crew said in a news release.
Save The Crew says the initial design was put together by volunteer architects and Columbus-based Rogers Krajnak Inc.
“We view this stadium design as a launchpad to start a conversation about the future home of Columbus Crew SC, following the purchase by local ownership.”
