Columbus Crew have champion pedigree, Dayton Dutch Lions look to stake a similiar claim by the end of their inaugural season.

Interest Building For Dutch Lions-Columbus Crew Match

Co-owner Mike Mossel:
“The Crew have a lot of fans in Dayton, so it’s good for them and it’s good for us in terms of trying to get locals interested in soccer and the Dutch Lions,” DDL FC co-owner Mike Mossel said.

“Hopefully, we build this relationship for a long time.”


Crew's Technical Director Brian Bliss:
“It’s a working relationship with a club doing things a little differently,” said Bliss, suggesting there was a good exchange of information.

“The match is an opportunity to get our regular guys back in tune with the game after the World Cup break.”

Midfielder Andrew Giallombardo on the game:
“It’s a massive game,” said DDL midfielder Andrew Giallombardo. “It’s the Battle of Ohio. We want to have a good showing, and we want to put the Dayton Dutch Lions on the map.”
