Hundreds of teams travel to the Club Ohio Nike Challenge Cup and participate against each other. The teams compete during the day and then go and support the Columbus Crew SC that evening.
There was one lucky team who received the wonder experience of walking hand in hand with the Columbus Crew SC players out onto the field! This team was Empire United Rochester 2008 boys team!
Our boys walked out onto the field holding the MLS players hands and stood tall during our national anthem, our boys then ran off the field before the start of the game and joined the other clubs in the stand for an exciting MLS game.
Empire United Soccer Academy continues to have a strong relationship with Columbus Crew SC, either by players having opportunites to play with the MLS club or wonderful experiences like this!
Thank you to Columbus Crew for the wonderful opportunity for our younger players and we wish you the best of luck in the season!
