In conjunction with MLS Works, Major League Soccer’s community outreach initiative, Columbus Crew SC will participate in the 5th annual Kick Childhood Cancer campaign benefitting Children’s Oncology Group, as part of childhood cancer awareness month throughout September.
Supported by all 23 MLS clubs, the month-long campaign will feature a commemorative gold adidas Nativo 2018 Official Match Ball and limited-edition merchandise, the latter of which will be worn by MLS players, coaches and PRO referees during pre-match activities. The apparel is available for purchase at MLSstore.com and for in-stadium purchase during Crew SC's Sept. 29 home match against the Philadelphia Union, with proceeds benefiting Children’s Oncology Group.
