Saturday’s match between the Crew and Los Angeles FC is the lone match-up between the two sides in 2022 and is the only First Team home match in the month of May. The Crew was last at home on April 30 and secured points in a shutout, posting a 3-0 victory over Eastern Conference foe D.C. United at Lower.com Field. The Black & Gold are in MLS Cup playoffs contention through the first 11 matches of their 34-match regular season.
Crew 2 plays in MLS NEXT Pro, Major League Soccer’s professional men’s soccer league which completes the player pathway from MLS NEXT through to MLS first teams. Crew 2 currently sits atop the Eastern Conference with 18 points and a record of 6-1-0. Crew 2 leads the League in fewest goals conceded (3) and is tied for first with Houston in MLS NEXT Pro in goal differential (+8).
The special ticket offer is part of On Our Sleeves Day on May 21, with additional matchday activation details to be announced this week. Last October, the Crew and Nationwide Children’s Hospital launched the Wrap Them in Support fundraising campaign, supporting the hospital’s On Our Sleeves movement for children’s mental health. As part of the campaign, a limited amount of Wrap Them in Support t-shirts are available, with all proceeds from the t-shirts sold in the Crew Shop going to benefit On Our Sleeves. Additional information on the fundraising campaign can be found at onoursleeves.org/crew.
Just last week, fans and partners from the Crew, Nationwide Children’s Hospital and On Our Sleeves wrapped the Lower.com Field pitch on May 11, setting the GUINNESS WORLD RECORDS title for longest chain of sports fan scarves, to draw attention to childhood mental health. The record-setting ceremony was celebrated at Lower.com Field. The prized scarf tied together a community wide commitment through the Wrap Them In Support campaign, where all proceeds benefit On Our Sleeves to provide free mental health educational resources to every community in America.
