A new $230 mil­lion down­town soc­cer sta­dium is be­ing pro­posed as the next home for the Colum­bus Crew. Plans were un­veiled by the po­ten­tial new own­er­ship group, led by Cleve­land Browns own­ers Dee and Jimmy Haslam, as they work to­ward tak­ing over the fran­chise. The new own­ers would in­vest $645 mil­lion into the project that would hold 20,000 peo­ple. The 33-acre site would also in­clude a river­front park, 885 new res­i­dences and other busi­ness ven­tures. Mapfre Sta­dium would not be left empty, as the plan would be to re­model it into a prac­tice fa­cil­ity with a com­mu­nity sports park around it.
