After suffering just their second loss of the season, Columbus Crew SC head to Frisco to take on FC Dallas Saturday night at Toyota Stadium.

FC Dallas (5W-3L-5D) are coming off a 0-0 draw against Orlando City SC Sunday, while the Crew fell to Toronto FC 3-1 in East Hartford.

FC Dallas

FC Dallas couldn’t take advantage of a man advantage for the final 20 minutes and settled for a share of the points with Orlando City SC Sunday night in Frisco. The best chance came early for FCD with when Santiago Mosquera denied by a fine close-range save from Orlando goalkeeper Pedro Gallese in the 10th minute.

“We need to play with more tempo from the back into the midfield to be dangerous. It was too slow,” defender Reto Ziegler said after the match. “We definitely need to do better. It happens usually at home. I don’t know if maybe we have too much confidence or we take too many touches, but we’re going to do better against Columbus, I’m sure.”

FC Dallas will receive solidarity payment as part of Weston McKennie’s transfer from Schalke to Juventus, sources tell MLSsoccer.com.

Columbus led at halftime courtesy of a Chris Mavinga own goal, but conceded three goals in the second half to fall to Toronto FC 3-1 in East Hartford Sunday night, snapping a six-match unbeaten streak.

“I have a very good team. That didn’t change in one bad half,” Caleb Porter said after the match. “Sometimes in football, you have a bad half. Sometimes you’re playing a really good team that, like I said, raises their level and we just don’t cope with it.”

COLUMBUS — Columbus Crew SC on Thursday announced that Season Ticket Memberships for the 2021 Major League Soccer season are now on sale to the general public. Season Ticket Members will receive preferred pricing for Crew SC matches as well as priority access to all events and opportunities surrounding the downtown, state-of-the-art, New Crew Stadium, which is slated to open in July of 2021 in Confluence Village near the Arena District.

Beginning today, fans can schedule an appointment to purchase Season Ticket Memberships via crewstadium.com/booking. All supporters who book an appointment will be offered a virtual tour of the New Crew Stadium, giving them a chance to get a preview of the matchday experience, an overview of the stadium design and the opportunity to view and select specific seats.

“We are thrilled to announce that the general public is now eligible to purchase season ticket memberships for the 2021 MLS season,” said Crew SC Executive Vice President and Chief Business Officer Steve Lyons. “Since breaking ground on this world-class facility last October, we have been delighted with the progress of the construction and the momentum of this Club as it is an exciting time for Columbus. To date, we’ve conducted over 4,500 virtual stadium experiences with season ticket members and there has been an urgency to secure seats. A key focus of the design of this venue is the fan experience and creating a stadium that has something for everyone as an inclusive home for soccer and our community. As we open ticket sales to the general public, this upcoming period marks an incredible opportunity to be a part of a family as our Season Ticket Members are the foundation of this Club.

The Crew’s new home – which was built 22 feet below grade to create efficient experience for patrons in the upper and lower bowl – will have a capacity of 20,000 supporters, with canopy covers over every seat. The stadium will also feature an intimate seating bowl experience with close proximity to the pitch, ledge seats offering an unparalleled vantage point to the field, several suites on both the East and West side, as well as field-level VIP experience with seats 16 feet from the pitch adjacent to the team benches.

Additionally, the New Crew Stadium will also feature two elevated standing-room only terraces directly above the Nordecke.

The stadium is slated to be completed by summer of 2021. To learn everything the stadium has to offer, fans should visit crewstadium.com. Supporters interested in tracking the development of the stadium may do so via the Construction Cam located on the stadium’s website.
