COLUMBUS – The Columbus Crew today announced that Spanish-language network Univision Deportes Network (UDN) – Univision’s newly launched, American sports branch – has added four Crew matches to its 2013 broadcast schedule.

UDN is televising four Black & Gold matches this season, beginning with the April 6 contest against the Philadelphia Union at Crew Stadium. After televising the Crew’s May 18 match at Toronto FC, UDN will showcase back-to-back Crew broadcasts in June: a June 5 home battle against Philadelphia followed by the June 15 tilt at Montreal. Regionally, FOX Sports Ohio is set to carry the English-language rights for all four fixtures.

In total, the Crew will play in front of a nationally televised audience seven times in 2013. Three additional matches are being showcased on other national television partners throughout the season. The Crew’s road contest against D.C. United on March 23, along with the team’s home tilt against the New York Red Bulls on May 4, are being carried by NBC Sports Network. The Black & Gold’s road fixture against the New York Red Bulls on May 26 is available nationally via UDN’s sister Spanish-language network UniMas, with FOX Sports Ohio carrying the English-language rights for that contest.

Single-match tickets for all Crew regular season home contests are now on-sale. Prices range from $23 to $48. Tickets for groups of 20 or more are also available, with discounted prices over individual match tickets. Crew season ticket plans start at just $15 per game, and feature significant savings over single-match pricing, along with an exclusive benefits package. Fans can also receive comprehensive team coverage and ticketing benefits by becoming a member of the Crew Soccer Nation Fan Club. Tickets are available by calling 614-447-CREW, and online via TheCrew.com and Ticketmaster.com.

The Crew opened the 2013 season with a 3-0 win at Chivas USA on March 2 and remains on the road this week through Saturday, March 9 at Vancouver Whitecaps FC (7:30 p.m. ET / FOX Sports Ohio).
