Sporting Columbus Night at a Crew SC Game
A great way to mingle with your team before the season/school gets crazy.  We are working on a pre-game social and will distribute information as soon as we finalize. 
Player Paperwork

We will be starting the carding process here shortly.  To avoid any delays in issuance of a player passcard, if you have not done so already, please be sure to upload a copy of a birth certificate or passport (new players only) and a picture.  Please click here to start the upload process.
Car Magnets, Bag Tags and Water Bottles

Below is a picture of the three design options: Black, Gray, Yellow/White. Bottles are 34 oz, BPA & Paba free, dishwasher safe, come with a spout and $17 each (includes tax and shipping). There are a few top/bottom artwork options. You can have a first name at the top and last name at the bottom, last name at the top and number at the bottom, last name at the top and nothing at the bottom, or whatever you like.

Water Bottles

Magnets will be approximately 4 1/2 x 4 1/2 round, $10 each. Cling to cars, refrigerators, etc. Add first name(s), or last name and/or jersey number. If you have more than one child in the program we recommend just listing first names or last name and not numbers (unless your kids have the same number). Or, don't list a name at all. 


Bag tags are 3x4, $9 each. Can be used for soccer bags, school bags, family bags, etc. Feel free to order different layouts depending on the use. You might want last name and number on bag tags for soccer, but first name and last name or a phone number on school bag tags. Tags are two-sided/two color with one side being Black/Yellow/White and the other side Gray/Black/White (see below ).

Bag Tag

If you are interested in ordering water bottles, car magnets or bag tags for your child(ren), please fill-out the info on the Google spreadsheets, links below.


Do not email your order. You must complete the information on the Google spreadsheet, noting the color(s) you want and the design (top and bottom artwork) and quantity. You can't edit Google sheets from mobile devices unless you have the Google Sheets app.

This offer is available until Thursday, 7/26. You can send payment via Venmo to @mkpresthus, OR cash or check payable to Melissa Presthus. We must place one large order at the same time because it's all on the same production run. There is a minimum order necessary. If you have an order listed on the spreadsheet, but have not paid your order will not be placed. If you don't have Venmo, payment can be delivered to Presthus at 6910 Addenbrook Blvd, New Albany, OH 43054 or you can give it to Melissa in person.

Sand Soccer

Sporting Columbus led by Dave Merrick had 52 players participate in its annual trip to Grand Haven, Michigan to participate in the Soccer in the Sand tournament.  Congratulations to the 2004 and 2005 groups for bringing back some sand medals.

Uniforms are available for purchase online (for those that have paid their deposit).  Anyone who has paid their deposit should have received an e-mail from soccer.com.  Another way to order your uniform is to go to soccer.com then in the upper right hand corner click on "find my store."  Pick "Sporting Columbus" which will then bring you to a landing page where you can select your team/birth year. After making this selection, you should be able to see your name.  If anyone has any questions, please click here.
