New food items highlight Crew Stadium improvements in 2013

Papa John's Pizza and White Castle to debut at Opening Match

At the beginning of each season, the Crew strives to make the Crew Stadium experience more enjoyable to the hundreds of thousands of fans that pass through its gate to watch the Black & Gold each season. Ahead of Saturday's Home Opener against the San Jose Earthquakes, the club has unveiled many new improvements as the stadium enters its 15th season of operation.

Highlighted by new partnerships with Papa John's Pizza and White Castle, Crew Stadium will offer many new food options at its concession stands. Papa John's will have its own custom-branded stand in the southeast corner of the stadium and the company's pizzas will be sold at other concession stands on the upper concourse. White Castle's famous sliders will be sold on the Crew Kicker Plaza and at other stand around the stadium.

Additionally, two new custom hot dogs will debut on Saturday to pay homage to a couple of Crew legends. The "Frankie-furter" chili dog and the "Crazy Kiwi Duncan Dog" will be available to satisfy your match day cravings. Coming from the Columbus streets to Crew Stadium, Yellow Boy's Polish Boys food truck will be selling its famous sausages as well on the Crew Kicker Plaza on match day.

These new food options join the new signage featuring stars of the Black & Gold including Jairo Arrieta, Federico Higuaín and Dominic Oduro that recently went up around the stadium. Come out to Crew Stadium on Saturday to check out all the new upgrades.
