COLUMBUS, Ohio (WTVN)--Following severe negative backlash of the team's re-branding, Columbus's MLS team will be known again as "Columbus Crew".
Team owners met with members of the Nordecke, a group of team supporters, on the team branding moving forward, and they came to a mutual agreement to keep the "Crew" as the club's name.
The re-branding also came with a new logo, with team owners indicating the number 96 will be incorporated into the new logo. It indicates the club's status as the charter member of MLS, founded in 1996.
Last week, the team announced a major re-branding, which included a new logo, and a change of the team name to "Columbus SC". That prompted a negative reaction from fans.
