The Audi 2023 MLS Cup Final

Columbus Crew vs. LAFC - Sat., December 9 at 4:00 p.m.

Saturday is all-or-nothing. It's to write a final momentous chapter of the 2023 Season.

It's for all the marbles. For a third star atop our crest, representing a third MLS Cup.

It's for our supporters. It's for our city.

As your collective cheers swell to a massive crescendo, rally for one last stand this season inside our Fortress, Field!

All Together Now rally towels will be available at the gates for you to wave throughout the match. Make sure to wave them as kickoff approaches and all throughout the match. Our home has proven to be intimidating all season long. Don't stop now.

On Saturday, Field will once again serve as the home of the Crew during the stadium’s first MLS Cup, which the Club earned the right to host based on its strong 2023 results, bolstered by the atmosphere you helped create at our fortress.

While Crew supporters and Field will continue to provide an exceptional home-field advantage, the in-stadium experience will be modified for the match as MLS Cup is a league event, similar to Leagues Cup. Some of the pre-match elements that happen during a Crew regular season home match will be replaced with MLS Cup rituals.



Enjoy games and a chance to take home prizes at MLS Fan Fest on Chase Plaza at Field. Fan Fest begins at 12:30 p.m. and ends at 3:30 p.m.

Shop for your Eastern Conference Champions and MLS Cup apparel at the Crew Shop starting at 12:30 p.m.

Take your photo in front of a MASSIVE 15-foot replica of the MLS Cup at Fan Fest.

Stop in at The Pub for food, beverage, and to watch a live pre-match show of 97.1 The Fan's Bone & Beam United podcast, airing from 2:00-3:30 p.m.



At 2:15 p.m., rally in front of the West Lobby on Columbus Crew Way and chant and cheer as the team de-boards the bus and enters our Fortress!
