“This will be a historic day for our club and our city,” said Crew Investor-Operator and Chairman Anthony Precourt. “Our League is evolving, our community is emerging and it’s the right time for us to realign our brand and our identity with this direction. We are looking forward to celebrating this exciting moment with our partners, season ticket members and supporters.”
