Columbus Crew Lift MLS Cup

MLS Cup 2020

Columbus Crew SC delivered on their lofty aspirations from a 25th Major League Soccer season like no other, winning the 2020 MLS Cup in convincing fashion in what’s likely the last major game at MAPFRE Stadium, the first soccer-specific ground in league history.

Behind an inspired performance from club-record signing Lucas Zelarayan, the Crew resoundingly beat the Seattle Sounders 3-0 on Saturday night, denying Seattle a championship repeat and returning to MLS’s peak for the first time since 2008. The Crew, who entered new ownership in 2018 after a fan-led movement to keep the club in Ohio, overcame incredible adversity to lift the Philip F. Anschutz Trophy.
