Columbus Crew versus New York City FC.

Today, we went up to Columbus to watch the Crew SC take New York City Football Club. We got these tickets back in April with the hope of getting to see NYCFC’s big trio of international superstars… David Villa, Andrea Pirlo and Frank Lampard. We made our way up to the Comfort Suites which is just a short walk away from the Crew’s MAPFRE Stadium. We waited for a break in the rain and made our way over to the Stadium. As soon as we got to MAPFRE, the match was delayed due to severe weather. But after about a forty-five minute delay, the match was about to kick-off…


Our seats for the match were great. It was a pretty incredible match that ended in a 3-3 draw. David Villa, Pirlo and Lampard all started and played the whole match! Lampard had NYCFC’s first goal, and David Villa netted a brace including a penalty in the 90+2′. And then Crew’s Ethan Finlay netted his second goal, an equalizer in the 90+5′! There were four goals scored in the final 10 minutes plus stoppage time! Like I said, it was a pretty incredible match. And we managed to get some pretty decent photos of the match including some great close-ups of some a lot of the players including NYCFC’s big three. After the match we got Pepperoni Rolls from The Pizza Joint. Those things alone are worth the drive to Columbus. YUM! And then Sunday morning we drove in the rain all the way back to Cincinnati. 🙂
