The Nordecke Code of Conduct exists to ensure and maximize the enjoyment of Columbus Crew matches for everyone in attendance.
The Nordecke is a supporters section. We pay attention to the match, wave flags, and participate in chants and songs, and we do this while standing for the entirety of the match. We want our stadium to be the most difficult place for opposing clubs to play in all of Major League Soccer, and this is how we can all make that happen.
There is no place for hate in our soccer stadium. We will not tolerate unnecessary negativity or bigotry toward fans, players, staff members, or referees in any capacity.
Respect The Staff
Ushers, ticket takers, and security staff members aren’t our enemies; they simply want us to have fun while staying safe. We respect requests when it comes to stadium policies and rules. If you feel that you’ve been treated unfairly, report the incident to a section leader or directly to Dan Lolli – the situation will absolutely, positively be addressed as quickly as possible.
We actively welcome new supporters of the Columbus Crew, and we are passionate about sharing our supporter’s mentality in a positive manner. We encourage those around us to become involved, we share our flags and banners, and we help others learn our chants and songs.
Do Not Interfere With The Match
No matter how you feel during the match, it is never acceptable to throw anything onto the field. This is true of entering the field of play as well. This is not how we show our support for the Crew.
Our sole purpose is to support the Columbus Crew. Creating or participating in a physical or verbal altercation will never be tolerated. If you start or participate in a fight, you will be removed from the Nordecke.
Those who fail to abide by the Nordecke Code of Conduct, as determined by Stadium management, may be ejected from the facility, subject to arrest, and/or banned from further events. Group disobedience will result in a loss of privileges and rights for the entire Nordecke area.
