#SaveTheCrew Receives MORPC's Massive Collaboration Award
The Mid-Ohio Regional Planning Commission’s (MORPC’s) Massive Collaboration Award was presented to #SavetheCrew.
This award honors individuals and organizations for their efforts and accomplishments related to a unique set of circumstances of regional significance.
#SavetheCrew was the grassroots effort and public/private partnership to keep the Columbus Crew Soccer Club in Columbus, rather than the team moving out of state. Thanks to efforts from Crew fans, the City of Columbus, Franklin County, the State of Ohio, the Columbus Partnership, and the Edwards and Haslam families, #SavetheCrew culminated in a deal for a new stadium under new ownership.
