https://www.usatoday.com/story/spor...loring-potential-move-austin-texas/771238001/ The owner of Major League Soccer's Columbus Crew announced Tuesday morning that he is considering moving the franchise to Austin, Texas, if a new stadium is not built in Ohio's capital city. Anthony Precourt, the Crew's chairman, said in a statement that "the current course is not sustainable" and he is exploring a move to Austin, "which is the largest metropolitan area in North America without a major league sports franchise." “This club has ambition to be a standard-bearer in MLS; therefore, we have no choice but to expand and explore all of our options," Precourt said in the statement. "Soccer is the world’s game, and with Austin’s growing presence as an international city, combined with its strong multicultural foundation, MLS in Austin could be an ideal fit." MLS commissioner Don Garber described Columbus' current situation as "concerning."
