Columbus Crew SC revealed its 2018 training gear on Wednesday, but with a twist. This year, the Black & Gold have a training kit sponsor: Ohio Health.
OhioHealth has been a sponsor with Crew SC since 1997, but this is the first time the healthcare provider’s logo has appeared on the team’s uniform. According to November, 2017 Columbus Business First article, the company is paying more to be a sponsor of the Black & Gold, and this could be part of the reason why.
It has been since 2016, when the jersey sponsorship deal with Barbasol ended, that Columbus has had a sponsor on the team’s training kits.
The new gear with the new sponsor will be available for purchase from the Crew SC shop in the coming days.
