As part of its scope, the article looks at the privately financed construction of seven teams' new stadiums in relation to the expansion of Major League Soccer.
As it pertains to Columbus, the Times' article touched on the Crew's impact in raising the League's profile when the club opened the 20,000-plus seat MAPFRE Stadium in 1999.
Additionally, the article explored the current construction of both the Crew's new Downtown Stadium in the Arena District, as well as the already-commenced transformation of MAPFRE Stadium into the OhioHealth Performance Center.
