About the film:
World Premiere. The remarkable story of a fanbase who showed the world that fan action trumps money. The Columbus Crew—a founding member of MLS—was under threat of relocation to Austin, Texas for the 2019 MLS season by their owner Anthony Precourt. Fans in Columbus rallied around the team with the grassroots #SaveTheCrew campaign. This version of the film, the full story of Save The Crew, will premiere on COPA90 later this summer.
This film is the only on-camera account of events as they happened in both Columbus and Austin, capturing some of the most fascinating moments in Ohio sports history.

“This is not only a tale of the love fans hold for their local soccer club and the community built around it, but also the strength of collective action, which should be used for good beyond sport.”
—David Miller, Communications Director for Save The Crew
