Reactions to the Crew’s new jersey sponsor

Crew fans were excited to see the new kit sponsor for the Black & Gold.

Social media is fun. Especially when something positive happens for Columbus Crew SC.

Whether you’re browsing through Twitter, liking pictures on Instagram or simply posting your reactions to something, it’s fun. Reactions are something Crew Twitter is known for.And that’s what we have, again.

At the beginning of the year, Major League Soccer dropped the 25th anniversary kits and Columbus’ was one of the only jerseys without a sponsor. Many fans did not like it and took to Twitter to express their feelings towards the ‘Heritage kit.’

With Thursday’s announcement of Nationwide and Nationwide Children’s Hospital stepping into that role, it’s transformed into one of the best kits, and not just because it belongs to the greatest team the world has ever seen.

As expected, there were plenty of Crew reactions.

That’s right.

For this season, Nationwide Children’s Hospital will be the jersey sponsor for the 2020 season with Nationwide coming in next season, to help ring in the new downtown stadium opening in the summer of 2021.

Fans tended to think the new kits and the new sponsor fit together nicely.

Some fans even took it further, and mentioned the dark times that the club faced in 2017 and 2018, when previous ownership was looking to relocate the club.

Through the dark times that this club has been through, this just sheds more light on what looks to be a promising season for the Black & Gold.
