The new kit for the Columbus Crew SC’s 2021 season has been released, and it’s making waves.
The new kit, aka the “Inaugural Stadium Kit” features a grey, white, and gold jersey with gold shorts and gold socks. The kid was inspired by the “iconic architecture of the New Crew Stadium” and features a grey and white pattern reminiscent of the sharp modern angles at the new stadium.
The kit also features a “ColumbUS” logo and a State of Ohio transfer with a star at the location of Columbus. The left sleeve of the shirt features a commemorative silver MLS Cup Champions sleeve patch, along with two stars above the Crew crest.
Initial reactions to the new uniforms varied. Some fans were frustrated that the team’s signature gold color wasn’t prominently featured on the jersey.
Torn because I like it as a kit, but for the Crew, why is it not yellow.

But Hanif Abdurraqib, aka my favorite Columbus Crew SC fan in Columbus, was supportive of the new look, saying he really liked it.

Whether fans like it or not, the new kit will join the black “New Heritage” kit, which was unveiled ahead of the 2020 campaign. The new Inaugural Stadium jersey is already available at the Crew SC Shop and supporters can snag theirs by calling 614-447-4244 or by making a reservation online at ColumbusSoccerShop.com.
Columbus Crew SC are headed to California this week to begin the 2021 preseason. After that, they’ll head to training camp in Orlando before kicking off the 2021 Scotiabank Concacaf Champions League on the road on April 8. The MLS regular season will start on April 17.
A complete MLS schedule is set to be announced by MLS in the near future as the Club prepares to move into New Crew Stadium this July.
