Columbus Crew SC fans took to Twitter last night after reading a tweet from soccer insider Grant Wahl about Investor/Operator Anthony Precourt seeking a new downtown stadium.

If Precourt’s demands are not met, 2018 appears to be the final season for the Black & Gold in Columbus.

According to the Columbus Dispatch, Major League Soccer has filed trademarks for the Austin Athletic and Austin FC.

Fans took to Twitter to share thoughts and opinions, even comparing it to when the 1995 Cleveland Browns left Northeast Ohio.

Even some of our colleagues were blown away by the news.

Crew SC means so much to so many people. People from all walks of life converged on MAPFRE Stadium every week to watch “the yellow soccer team” take the pitch.

Former players even weighed in on the issue. Some even tried to garner a laugh or two during these troubling times.

And city officials.

October 16th will go down in history for this storied franchise. This date could be the day that history was changed for the founding club in Major League Soccer.
