RIP, Kirk Urso. A life lost too soon. We’ll always walk together, black and gold forever.
13 years ago today the first soccer-specific-stadium in MLS opened, Crew Stadium in Columbus. Funded by Lamar Hunt, the stadium was built in a little over a year and a crowd of 24,741 attended the inaugural game. Its pictured above from 1999. Now showing its age and rarely filled to the brim any longer, it remains a historic landmark in the American game.
