COLUMBUS — Columbus Crew SC today announced that its Pay As We Play Plan for potential Audi 2018 MLS Cup Playoff matches at MAPFRE Stadium through the Eastern Conference Championship is on-sale to the general public today, September 28. Entering this week's MLS regular-season action, Crew SC is above the playoff line in fourth place in the Eastern Conference with a record of 13-9-8 (47 points).
The Pay As We Play Plan comes at a discounted rate from single-match pricing with the flexibility of only being charged for matches once they are guaranteed to be played. As a benefit to Crew SC Season Ticket Members, the Pay As We Plan is included automatically in memberships with an option to opt-out by Monday, October 8. The Pay As We Play Plan is available for purchase for 10-Match Plan holders and the general public.
This year's Audi 2018 MLS Cup Playoffs features three potential home matches for the Black & Gold ahead of the 2018 MLS Cup; the Knockout Round features one-game tilts between seeds three and six as well as seeds four and five, with the winners advancing to the Eastern Conference Semifinal. Both the Eastern Conference Semifinal and the Eastern Conference Championship are two-legged aggregate series, and Crew SC would host one leg in each round, should it advance.
