Crew not mov­ing to Austin after all

San Antonio Express-News (Sunday) - - Sports -

Ma­jor League Soc­cer an­nounced late Fri­day that it had reached an agree­ment to trans­fer con­trol of the Colum­bus

Crew to a group led by Cleve­land Browns owner Jimmy Haslam that has pledged to keep the team in Ohio.

The deal will pre­vent the Crew’s threat­ened move to Austin and end an ugly fight that had driven a wedge be­tween the team’s fans and the or­ga­ni­za­tion. But it won’t stop the MLS from com­ing to Austin — the city is now slated to get an ex­pan­sion team, so San An­to­nio’s path to soc­cer’s top tier in the U.S. re­mains blocked.
