Rivalries & Top Games to Attend

Columbus Crew vs Chicago Fire

Rival Team: Chicago Fire

The Crew are the closest team to the Fire geographically, and as a result, there is a relatively heated rivalry between the two teams’ fans. When the Fire come to town they always bring a lot of fans, so don’t miss attending a Fire-Crew game at Mapfre Stadium.

Trillium Cup

Rival Team: Toronto FC

Named after the official wildflower of Ohio and the official flower of Ontario, the Columbus Crew, and Toronto FC compete each year for the Trillium Cup. The cup is awarded to the team with the most points at the end of the season and since its inception in 2008 has been won by the Crew six times. There is always a lot on the line when the Crew and Toronto FC square off, so make sure to be in attendance when Toronto FC comes to town.

Lamar Hunt Pioneer Cup

Rival Team: FC Dallas

While both the Columbus Crew and FC Dallas are founding MLS members, the Lamar Hunt Pioneer Cup didn’t come into existence until 2007. The trophy is named after American soccer supporter and former owner of both teams Lamar Hunt. A Columbus-Dallas match has more at stake than you’re typical inter-conference MLS matchup making it the perfect opportunity to catch a game at Mapfre Stadium.
