COLUMBUS — Columbus Crew SC today announced that supporter Kevin Glenn’s patch design has been selected by fellow supporters as the winning entry in the Club’s New Nordecke commemorative patch design contest. The winning patch design will be given exclusively to Season Ticket Members with Nordecke seats for the 2021 season, allowing them to affix it to their jerseys to commemorate the inaugural season at the New Crew Stadium, the downtown home of the 2020 MLS Cup champions.
Glenn has been a Crew SC supporter since 2007 and a Season Ticket Member since 2015. A graphic designer with over 20 years of experience, Glenn also designed the current Nordecke “N” logo. He is the founder and designer of Supporters Supply Co., a local company that creates supporter-centric, Columbus and Crew-inspired apparel.
Four designs were chosen by Crew SC as finalists from a total of 50 entries submitted by supporters, with Glenn’s design receiving 34.8 percent of the votes. The winning patch – rectangular in shape, featuring the Nordecke “N” logo in the center placed over a Black & Gold-checkered scarf, with a gold background and black trim – reflects the heart, soul and tradition of the Club and the Nordecke supporters’ section, which will become the second largest supporters’ section in an MLS stadium when the New Crew Stadium opens in July of 2021.
Nordecke supporters that attend matches will also be able to enjoy new amenities inside the New Crew Stadium such as state of the art Ledge seats, a beer garden, and a beer hall among many other features. Additionally, fans are able to see the field from different seating sections through the new stadium’s 3-D seat viewer.
