With 25,000 20 something's within a mile, in a University that gets behind soccer, who could perhaps use something to do on a weekend night. Akron U might be a decent place for a USL Crew 2 team, maybe.
Decide Crew 2.
But, writing a story on this Wednesday, with the best ideas.
Solid ideas so far:
-Forget Dayton. Canton, Toledo, or Cleveland would be much better locations.
-Name Crew 2 the Cleveland Generals (in honor of General Moses Cleaveland, the founder of Cleveland)
-Name Crew 2 Akron Crew, the team should practice M-F in Obetz and play on weekends in Akron to grow the market and the brand (black and gold, similar logo, somewhat similar thematic name).
-If they chose to go with Akron, they could probably play at the Zips stadium. That would be easy enough.
Highly recommend First Energy Stadium, where the Akron Zips play. Is a sharp little stadium, with a nice press box, easy to film games, put live online. Did it twice when I was producing Division I.. In a good location (smack dab in the middle of campus).
What would you name a Columbus Crew 2 team?— Crewfighter (@CrewtureFanzine) August 11, 2016
If you have a creative mindset, selecting one of my dubious names doesn't mean you want that name. The names represent the following ideas:
If you go with one just looking for Crew 2.
If you go with two in Columbus but a different name. Still could play in CCS.
If you go with three in a suburb.
In four Dayton Crew. Or Canton Crew. Or Cleveland Crew. Etc.
Just wasn't able to make a poll that long on Twitter. When done. I'll Photoshop poll finale in that way.
Could be a waste of time. But, who knows.
A dude or babe could come up with an idea that the team ends up really liking.
