The tailgate at a Columbus Crew game presents a family like atmosphere where as long as you’re cheering on The Black & Gold everyone will welcome you with open arms. One of the best things about tailgating at a Crew game is that all the supporter groups come together to create one giant tailgating hotspot called Mega Tailgate. At Mega Tailgate you’ll find tons of Crew fans dressed head to toe in black and gold as well as tons of food and booze making it the perfect place to hang out before the game.
If traditional tailgating isn’t your scene, don’t worry as there are plenty of nearby supporters bars to check out as well including Fourth Street Bar and Hendoc’s Pub. Crew fans go hard at these bars, and you’ll have an excellent time talking to fellow fans and even singing some songs before the match.
Whether you’re tailgating at Mega Tailgate or throwing back a few at the bar, you’ll have a great time partying before a Columbus Crew game.
